    Coco Kislinger is the talented young chef behind Coco Bakes, a wildly popular gluten- and dairy-free baking company based out of Santa Monica. Coco developed a love of baking at a very young age, but after returning home from culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, she found her body could no longer process any of the gluten and dairy-based confections she’d just spent months learning to make. Rather than give up, she started experimenting with alternative flours, fats, and sweeteners and developed a whole new type of baking—one her body could actually digest.
