Veganuary Gluten Free Pizza Socca Style

2019-03-15T11:51:51+00:0016th January 2019|

This gluten free pizza base is made with gram flour. The base can be prepared ahead so it’s really just a matter of adding a topping or two and baking for fifteen minutes. The Italians have been using gram flour to make a delightful flatbread called Farinita, for centuries, and in the South of France, gram flour is mixed with olive oil and seasonings to make a pancake like dish called Socca. Gram flour, also known as chickpea flour, is available in health food shops, Asian and ethnic shops, and many supermarkets. Literally made from ground chic peas, it is high in protein and fibre, low in fat, and is naturally gluten free. To make a Veganuary inspired pizza, top your base with cashew cheese or your favourite plant- based cheese and then add your toppings. I top mine with a courgette Mac ’n’ cheese and pulled jackfruit, but a simple spinach and tomato topping works just as well. If vegan is not your thing, you can top with cheese and your favourite pizza toppings. Feta, marinated kale, and mushroom is a great choice for a winter option. Perfect served with a green salad or slaw and a glass of Read more

A Gluten Free Christmas

2018-12-07T18:06:08+00:007th December 2018|

If you are hosting this year’s Christmas Party, it’s easy to create gluten free Christmas canapés. Instead of using bread for crostini, substitute seasoned sweet potato rounds. Bake, and then top with your favourite fillings. Be imaginative with toppings; pea puree with ham hock and pomegranate jam is full of traditional flavours, black bean with a vegan yoghurt and mango is tropical and exotic and beet Tzatziki is so pretty it belongs on any party table. For a hipster gluten free version of pigs in blankets, wrap strips of Haloumi and rosemary in maple bacon and grill until the bacon is crisp and the Haloumi is melting. When it comes to Christmas treats, friands, an Aussie take on a French classic, are a light and easy-to-make gluten free substitute for mince pies. The recipe here calls for a mince pie topping but you can use all kinds of variations .Try them with pistachio nuts and stem ginger, or cranberry, orange and walnut. Delicious served warmed with brandy butter and glass of gluten- free beer! Christmas Friends with Mince Pie Topping Makes 12 muffin or cupcake size cakes. 250 gr of icing sugar 125 gr of ground almonds 75gr of gluten Read more

Great Recipe Ideas for Gluten Free…

2019-03-15T11:52:20+00:0022nd October 2018|

Whilst between us we reckon to know quite a bit about drinks, we certainly won’t make the same claim to be experts when it comes to food. However, we do know someone who is, and we thought it would be helpful to suggest some recipe ideas – gluten free of course – that will go well with our beers. We have teamed up to collaborate with Tansy Austin to create a few dishes to get our food pairing. Here's a bit more about Tansy...  I moved to the South Coast of England to start a Mexican Cantina with my Irish boyfriend. We called the Cantina "Las Margaritas" For ten years, I made tamales, soft corn tacos, mole and authentic Aztec stews for the people of Poole. Along with classic Mexican meat dishes our menu always featured meat, gluten and dairy free dishes. “Free-From Food” that tasted authentic. Food that didn’t need a long list of special ingredients, but still looked amazing on the plate. Following the sale of Las Margaritas I continue to work locally. I provide outside catering to private clients. I create menus and cook for a variety of local businesses. My focus is Read more
