Whether you stick to a gluten-free diet or you’re cooking for someone who does, a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings is actually easier than you think to make “free-from”.
There’s a lot involved in cooking a traditional Christmas roast so you don’t want to be cooking lots of different alternatives for your gluten-free guests – and you really don’t have to. Be safe in the knowledge that all guests can tuck into all dishes with just a few easy tweaks to your normal recipes.
Give it two weeks. That's what I suggest. Avoid gluten for fourteen days and see how you feel. Then, on day fifteen, have some bread and see what happens. ... I've managed to stay gluten-free and eat a healthy, balanced, satisfying diet that fuels a professional tennis career -- and I probably have far less control over my schedule and where I eat than you do. You can take control over your diet, and your life.
-- Novak Djokovic in his memoir/diet book: "Serve to Win"

There are few who would deny the presence of a higher power. A God by many different names. Historically it must have been hard for him to get around… but now he has the web… !
As a child I tried to pull off deals with God ‘ just sort such and such …. and I promise ….. ‘.
They mostly didn’t work .

The Christmas Craft Fair in the RDS Dublin takes place from Wednesday 3rd December to Sunday 7th December 2014, and showcases the best of Irish Food & Craft. This event is widely regarded as Ireland's premier craft work showcase so it's no to be missed.
Delighted & honoured to be recommended by the doyenne of fabulous food , Georgina Campbell - in her IRELAND guide for 2013.
Since its inception in 1997, the editorial position at Georgina Campbell Guides has always been fiercely proud of it's independent and no payment is received for their recommendations. They insist that "independence is at the core of our philosophy and we have always selected establishments for recommendation on merit alone."
The Great Taste Awards often referred to as the “Oscars of the Food Industry”, are the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink across the UK and Ireland. Products are blind tasted by industry experts- so this is all about taste folks, not packaging or gimmicks.
3 awards for our Gluten Free Mega Muesli, Cumin Multiseed Toasts and Honeyed Almond & Rosemary Toasts
We ROCKED Gluten Free Christmas - with 3 awards for our Gluten Free Christmas Pudding / Gluten Free Mince Pies/ Gluten Free Mincemeat.
Plus our new double choc gluten , wheat and dairy free cookies.
And for a small family business in the West of Ireland who lay in ashes in the Summer of 2011- we were overwhelmed and beyond excited to have won 7, yes that is SEVEN , Gold medals for a selection of our 'regular' and gluten free products.
We are proud to be associated with this 'Best of Irish' good food community from 2006 through to 2013. John & Sally McKenna are tireless in scouting out all that's great about Irish Food and as far as we are concerned - are very perceptive in their understanding of what makes us tick!
We closed for 4 months to regroup, recover and rebuild. We count ourselves blessed with all the support & goodwill received from friends, family, fellow business owners, customers & retailers. There was a lot of help around in the following weeks - cleaning, sorting, separating.
