Allyson Kramer

Hi, I’m Allyson Kramer and I’m a best-selling cookbook author, recipe developer, and food photographer specializing in plant-based and gluten-free cuisine.

I started blogging in 2009–back before I was diagnosed with celiac disease–to share vegan recipes and random thoughts, and have happily turned it into a full-time gig. I studied Fine Art in college and have been cooking and baking since I was a small child.

These days I write cookbooks, develop recipes for companies and publications, as well as style and shoot food photography. I also run the Vegan Food Site for About.com. I live in Philadelphia, PA, with my best friend/husband, our two kids, and a houseful of adopted animal friends. I’m also currently pursuing my Masters in Nutrition/Food Science.

My recipes have been featured in numerous publications, including The Huffington Post, Vegetarian Times, Bust Magazine, Easy Eats Magazine, All You Magazine, VegNews Magazine, and Glamour Magazine. My cookbooks have received acclaim in the food community, including Vegetarian Times naming my debut cookbook “Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats” as Top 5 cookbooks of 2012, and VegNews Magazine naming it a Top 10 of 2012.

I can most easily be reached by email: allyson@manifestvegan.com. Although I try and respond as quickly as possible, please allow a few days to a week for a proper response. Thanks for reading!

To work with me directly on recipe development, food writing, sponsorship opportunities, or food photography, please contact my literary agent extraordinaire:
