Meet the Pastry Chef!

Pastry Chef Kira McMullan

Hi! I’m Kira. The professionally trained pastry chef and recipe developer behind Kira Bakes Gluten Free.

My origin story is a little different compared to most pastry chefs. In my mid-twenties I developed some serious health issues which I later found out was due to an undiagnosed allergy to wheat.

Having a food allergy or needing to cut out certain foods can be difficult and socially isolating. Over the last 10+ years I have been working hard and educating myself so I could not only bring my love of baking back into my own life, but also so that I could share my gluten free recipes with anyone else who needs a little extra support and sweetness in their gluten free lives.

Over the years I’ve graduated from pastry school, worked in restaurants, patisseries, spent time as a chocolatier, pasta maker (pastaia), and least notably I was once a chef hand-double in a Hallmark film. These days I’m using my culinary skills to develop new gluten free recipes that I share here, on Kira Bakes Gluten Free.

If you have any gluten-free baking questions for me or just want to connect, reach out on Instagram or info@kirabakesglutenfree.com!
