Speaker Topic
The kitchen is where all the best things in life happen…until it isn’t any more. Lifestyles have changed dramatically in recent years, and most of us know at least one person that must adhere to a gluten-free diet (or dairy-free, or egg-free, or nut-free). This doesn’t have to put the gracious host into an entertaining tailspin (or cause one to simply ignore a guest’s needs, which isn’t very gracious at all).

A lifelong foodie, former restaurateur, and wife to the owner of #BajaGringo Tacos, Kim has fed her family—and entertained all of her extended family and friends—gluten-free for thirteen years. She’s the frequent host of an annual Christmas Eve cocktail party, and has managed to pull off the fete with and without a proper “GANE Possible” kitchen.

Learn and enjoy simple strategies and recipes for hosting a heavy appetizer & dessert spread that welcomes and satisfies everyone on the guest list, gluten-free or otherwise.

Speaker Biography
KIM JORGENSEN GANE is every woman, every mom, every writer. After many Erica Kane worthy iterations, she is firmly rooted in her hometown, content with writing, selling real estate, lifestyle and book coaching, and producing/co-directing Listen to Your Mother®, Southwest Michigan. She is wife to a taco truck owning photographer, aunt to a trombone, baseball, and video game playing live-in nephew, and mom/stepmom to a mine, a his (two grown, married daughters) and an ours: a middle grade, cello playing, dragon-obsessed boy and his furry brothers—two standard poodles that follow her everywhere.

Kim writes on a variety of topics including parenting through midlife crisis, infertility, health and wellness, personal empowerment, politics, real estate and life in southwest Michigan…and pretty much anything else that interests her. Kim has coached and supported countless folks on their allergen–free paths to wellness.
