Food should give you pleasure, not pressure.
Hipp Kitchen is grounded in the pleasures of allergen-free cooking, especially when it comes to the five worst allergens: gluten, dairy, soy, shellfish and peanuts.
If you are an allerginista who is convinced your food choices are limited, you've come to the right place.
We also love food enthusiasts who are passionate about flavor, texture and variety and may or may not have a concern about food being allergen-friendly.FREE COOKBOOK!
