     Ruth Meaney from Pea Fritters - Happy Tummies

    Ruth is co-author of Allergy Free Afternoon Tea and author of the blog Pea Fritters. She is a mother to two gorgeous kids who both have allergies and intolerances. Learning to cook safe food for her family has been a steep learning curve but now Ruth loves the challenge of inventing and modifying recipes to feed her family. In 2016, Ruth hosted a fundraising High Tea For Hamlin which was totally free from the top 8 allergens. The event raised over $1500 for Hamlin Fistula Hospital. Another High Tea is planned for later in 2017. When not in the kitchen cooking up a storm, you can find Ruth playing with her kids in the beautiful Blue Mountains. Her two biggest wishes are to swim with whale sharks and to have a full night's sleep!
