About Us

This blog was created by three different food palettes and three people with diverse dietary limitations and food preferences. However, all three of us share a love for cooking, baking and bringing family and friends together over good meals.

Once we realized that each of us had similar restrictions in our diets, we started to share tips with one another to find and make exciting recipes.  Our limitations span from vegan to gluten and soy-free. But despite these “food obstacles,” we learned to be crafty in the kitchen and make delicious food.

The goal of The Three Dishes is to help other people who may have food allergies, sensitivities or just specific food views, still enjoy cooking and eating. Even if you can’t have everything on a menu or grab whatever you want down a supermarket aisle, you can still make food with lots of flavor. On The Three Dishes, we will share our recipes, tips, product and restaurant reviews and articles that capture our food adventures and experiences.

We want this site to be a haven for food lovers who are willing to get crafty in the kitchen, use fewer ingredients but never sacrifice taste. Stop by whenever and tell us how we’re doing: thethreedishes@gmail.com

 Meet the authors:



Marissa is currently a Marketing Professional and a brand new resident of Providence, Rhode Island. Originally from New York and then later Boston, Massachusetts for 9 years, Marissa loves all types of cuisines specifically Italian, Middle Eastern and North African. For two years, she has been gluten-free and after recently realizing that wasn’t enough to keep her healthy and her stomach happy, she cut out soy, corn, eggs and dairy. Luckily, the kitchen is Marissa’s favorite place to be so she takes these restrictions as a challenge to share fun food ideas with friends and family and all of you.

Nina is an artist living and working in Boston, MA. She has always loved good food and has spent the better part of a decade working in various restaurants. After spending several years staying away from dairy she began working with a Naturopath to truly solve several health problems.  She has been gluten-, dairy-, egg-, soy-, and yeast-free for a year and a half now, and even though it took some getting used to (and there may have been tears when confronted with a really fantastic cheese counter), she feels better now than she ever has. Nina loves most food, but especially Thai, Japanese, and Indian cuisine, and is excited to become more adventurous in the kitchen while making food that her allergy-free partner will also enjoy.

Annika lives in a very small town in Maine. Vegan by choice and gluten/yeast/fermented food/sugar free per her doctor’s orders, she loves baking whatever fits into her diet but feels fairly indifferent about cooking. Annika loves French, Middle Eastern, and Indian recipes, and is looking forward to becoming a better cook.
