About the mold-free diet
Recipe listing

From Lady B: "The Mold-free Gourmet" cookbook was first published in 1998. This project began as a personal quest to help those who truly suffered from food mold allergies, and to enable them to eat a normal diet. Due to other priorities, active cookbook sales were discontinued in late 2003. However, the desire to help remained; therefore, the contents of the cookbook are now published here, for the benefit of food mold allergy sufferers everywhere.

Many thanks to Lady B for making this available
