I have been working tirelessly on mastering the art of gluten free baking since my husband was diagnosed. I was determind to expel the myth that gluten free meant taste free.
The only ingredient that I substitute is the flour. I use a blended mix of gluten free flours. My tried and tested recipes are adapted from traditional methods that my dear old grandma Watson taught me.
I have been baking since the age of 7 years old and always had a passion for experimenting with ingredients. I strongly believe the ‘recipe’ to successful baking is not to be afraid to play around with ingredients.
Baking isn’t just a science it’s an art. So get in the kitchen and enjoy having fun with ingredients.
My husband Dave was diagnosed coeliac over 10 years ago during a time when it was difficult to buy decent quality gluten free products, that actually tasted nice. Over the years I have researched and adapted recipes to create gluten free food that tastes as good as food with gluten.
Having an autoimmune disease like coeliac doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some of your favourite foods.
I recently left a career in the corporate world to follow my passion for cooking and my dream to eventually open a deli. This dream has evolved into a vision to open a totally gluten free deli. That dream is now a reality and I’m loving every minute of my adventure.
I sometimes stand in my kitchen and think, wow is this really my place, am I really here?
I hope you will follow me as I continue on my journey.
