My name is Anne, welcome to my web site. Thanks to Charles and Alex for their input and for being there when I have technical questions. I hope you will find the site useful as a gluten-free recipe resource- all my original recipes are still here plus a few more pictures.
I am based in the UK and use UK spelling except for Celiac which I spell the American way as many people who suffer from gluten and wheat problems spell it this way. My apologies to any British coeliacs who use the Latin original. Celiac disease (also known as Sprue in the States) is not the only reason why some of you are wheat/gluten free - other conditions benefit from this diet as many of you who visit this site may be aware.
I am both wheat and gluten intolerant and have been for a number of years. However, I have been cooking a meal from scratch most nights- or so it seems- of my teenage & adult life. The kitchen is the centre of my home, I love cooking, creating and tasting and you can't beat the smells wafting through the house.
I have set up this web site as a complete kosher celiac/gluten free cookery guide and recipe resource. I am not health professional. This site is based on personal experience and the scraps of paper I have jotted things down on over the last 30 years as well as my continued “inventions” in the kitchen today. I have written and still actually write a cookery column for a synagogue magazine and contribute to other publications, have written 2 Celiac Cookbooks, as well as giving talks and demos. My ingredient quantities are given in both grams and ounces they do not co-relate exactly but I have cooked both ways. Many of the recipes use gluten free substitutes. However, please note that any flour, whatever it is, varies from batch to batch in liquid uptake so you may have to adapt liquids very slightly.
Some parts of the world do not have gluten-rich grains. There are many recipes that are naturally gluten free and these are the "complete" parts, as "man cannot live by bread alone". Don’t look on being wheat/gluten free as a chore but a whole new adventure which like life is a journey.
I add to this site when I can, time permitting and try to remember to photograph dishes before they are eaten - but tend to forget; please remember these are amateur snaps not professional photographs.
Please feel free to leave feedback on my contact page. Now let's start cooking.
Wonderful site, what a brilliant idea.
Well done Anne. I had a look and it is really interesting. - Janet K
