Huge thanks to woman&home.com for voting my book Simply Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free one of the 5 best allergy cookbooks. That’s awesome! They’ve also featured books by Phil Vickery, Julia Thomas, Alice Sherwood and Pippa Kendrick so I’m in good company! They say –
“Cooking for a guest with a food intolerance? Or simply not sure where to begin when cooking from scratch? Grace Cheetham has been living with food-allergies from a young age so she understands just how daunting free-from cooking can be. She’s developed a collection of tasty classic breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes which forgo gluten and dairy but are still straightforward to make.”
Many thanks, again, woman&home!
I’m hugely excited about the newly-launched Free-From Food Festival next weekend. I’m going to do a demo on Saturday 26 November 1.30–2.15pm – and I’m going to make the Raspberry & Rosewater Cupcakes that feature on the cover of my new book Simply Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free.
Caroline Aherne, the owner of Sugargrain, which makes award-winning free-from baked goods, has set up the Festival. Bringing together food specialists and artisan producers, the Festival showcases natural and healthy products that are free-from, especially ones without gluten, wheat, dairy, sugar or egg. I’m looking forward to meeting different producers and experts – and trying new products.
I’d love to show you how to whip up gluten-free and dairy-free cupcakes that are light, moist and incredibly delicious. So if you can make it, it would be great to see you!
Huge thanks to the team at Waitrose Weekend for recommending my book, Simply Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free (and saying lovely things about it!) in their piece on Coeliac UK’s Awareness Week. I’m so excited that they think my book is so good!
It looks as if Coeliac UK’s Gluten-Free Challenge, launched during the Awareness Week, has been really successful. There’s been a lot in the press, on blogs and on twitter – and it has been backed by people like Gino D’Acampo, Phillip Schofield and Dr Chris Steele (This Morning’s doctor). Their aim was to get people thinking about gluten-free diets, and help them understand what it is like to live with coeliac disease. They also wanted to make it clear to the catering industry that gluten-free food is in high demand, to encourage them to provide options for those on the gluten-free diet. This is all brilliant – and it does seem as if the message is starting to get through….
