Chantal's passion for cooking was ignited when, as a teenager, she was diagnosed as allergic to dairy, eggs and wheat. She believes everyone should take joy and satisfaction from food and so she specializes in free-from cooking. Chantal has worked as a personal chef, caterer, restaurateur and in food product development. She was the development chef at LEON for two years, creating their bestselling rice box. She is co-author, with Rebecca Seal and John Vincent, of LEON Fast Vegan.
