Bruschetta with a fresh twist! Sure, there’s nothing wrong with a good old sandwich. But don’t you sometimes get tired of that same old cheese and ham squeezed between two sorry slices of plain bread? I sure do.. -And that’s why the heavens gave us bruschetta: a crispy, flavourful, fresh open sandwich, with no other […]
Don’t Underestimate The Power of Great Food Photography Are you a food blogger? Foodie? Food enthusiast? Most importantly; do you take photos of food? How many times have you sat at a restaurant and swooned over the gorgeous food on the plate in front of you, only to realise that the 2D version in your […]
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free adaptable, low-FODMAP adaptable, lacto/ovo and lacto-ovo vegetarian. A fresh, modern take on a classic Bread pudding is a popular dessert in so many countries, but often considered a bit of a heavy and “old-fashioned” dish. I think that this wonderful, classic pudding deserves a fresh and contemporary revival! Out go […]
Theatre under the stars Ever since one of our first dates, about 4 years ago, my husband and I have loved the outdoor theatre in Regents Park. It’s a fantastic experience, every time, and makes for a perfect date spot. There really is nothing like watching great acting and gorgeous singing under the stars, with […]
“Tired of London, tired of life” (quote: Tom Jones) Out-and-about with a hungry fire in your belly is absolutely no problem for a coeliac in London! There’s an outright ocean of choices, and no reason to go hungry. In fact, I’d say it would be hard to compete with London in terms of ease and […]
Have you been looking for gluten-free liquorice by any chance? I recently spent a few days in Oslo (Norway) where I hosted a workshop about blogging (so much fun!), and on the way home I found something delicious (and gluten-free of course) at the airport! As a Scandinavian, I simply cannot live without salty liquorice. […]

Sweets for my sweet.. It is not always easy for children (or adults for that matter) with sensitivities and allergies to feel “normal”. A lot of our sense of belonging stems from participation in activities along with our peers, and food plays a huge role in most social gatherings. For children especially, the sense of […]
Nothing beats fresh pasta. However fantastic the dry stuff is, it just doesn’t come close.
Erykah Badu once said that “Honey isn’t really that good for you” …and if you are vegan, low FODMAP, allergic, on a Failsafe diet, macrobiotic diet or simply under the age of 12 months, Ms. Badu is quite right. Honey has a lot of health benefits, but as with every other food, these benefits are […]

(image source) Sunscreen is probably the most difficult thing to find a decent natural alternative for. I’ve written a review of Invisible Zink previously, and now it’s time for another alternative. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. The big question is as always: how can I get broad spectrum […]
Being on a complete elimination diet and living in sunny Australia poses one giant conundrum; sun protection. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. How can I get broad spectrum high protection without all the gunk?
‘Tis the season to dream of Christmas! It may just be August, but I’ve been in quite the Christmas spirit lately. I even rented some silly x-mas movies last night, and I’m playing with the idea of heading back to Europe come snowfall..
GABO or “Great Australian Bake Off” is sweeping over the nation with soggy sponges and crumbling cupcakes in tow. A self-raising baking frenzy is taking off like a rogue blender, and the heavily frosted pink counterpart to the much applauded Master Chef and MKR, is eagerly waiting to claim it’s 15 minutes of fame.
Mother-in-law popped by for a quick dinner-and-dessert visit yesterday, and I thought I’d bake something. I have become “that one who bakes”. I used the to be “that one who brings the fun” and now I bring cake. Not that cake isn’t fun. Just very different fun.
Oh glory, I have found love.. In a wonderful world, far, far away in my wildest dreams, I can pop into a random cafe and pick anything off the menu. I might even have a cold beer with my meal! In my wildest dreams, right? Nope. Not any more!
..and it’s a winner! Table of Plentys yummy little sweet treats make a welcome change from the chocolate covered rice cakes that can be found most anywhere. Plus, I just picked them up from a petrol station! Very convenient indeed.
(Photo from http://www.glutafin.co.uk) I just want to mention that back in the UK I received a lovely heaping hamper of really rather decent gluten-free products from a company called Glutafin. For no special reason other than being a newly diagnosed coeliac!
Just thought I’d mention that I found a good pasta brand. I hate mushy, soggy, wet and overcooked pasta. Pasta that swells up and fills the pot, disappears through the strainer and dissolves when you try to stab at it with your fork. San Remo does it better. I really like their fettuccine. Al dente, at […]
Airports (something I see a lot of) are usually a no-can-do for GF treats. In fact, travelling Sydney-Gold Coast today I couldn’t even track down GF lozenges, let alone anything edible. However, last week I had a little moment of thrill in newly renovated Auckland International, as I came across a tiny treasure of a […]
Home away from home for my fiancée and I would be the Royal Meridien Hotel in Dubai. We just can’t stop falling in love with this heavenly place and we keep returning. It is where we had our first holiday together, and it is where he eventually proposed. I’ve been told that some people don’t […]
Who’d have thought a small place like Pukekohe could whip up such a grand and worldly display of service! My very first GF outing in “The Land of The Long White Cloud” proved a smashing hit. In the otherwise rather unpolished and rural surroundings of country town Pukekohe (south of Auckland), lies a surprisingly […]
Utter bliss would be the best way to describe NOPI, a classic contemporary top-shelf restaurant in central London that proudly features a full GF menu. No sacrifices, no compromises, just all wonderfully scrumptious food that even the pickiest taste buds can’t fault.
