After eating without thinking for four decades, suddenly the word Coeliac entered my life, which in turn brought two other words. Gluten. Free. This blog tracks my personal food journey and experiences. I hope you enjoy it.

Kitchen by Mike

Kitchen by Mike is one of those places that – up until now – existed in my head as a design and food dream. In this dream, there’s a huge, spacious – yet warm and friendly warehouse showroom, with a beautiful collection of Australian made...READ ON»

I look at this pic now and think I could almost have called this salad a rainbow salad – it has so many colours in it. It came from a desire for a) a craving for health and all sorts of vegies, and b) to not...READ ON»
Chicken pie

Raw chocolate love truffles

Raw chocolate love truffles

Raw chocolate love truffles (sounds a bit like a band doesn’t it). These are my new heavenly discovery…..and if you live in Sydney, they could become yours too. I found this beautiful morsel just waiting to be eaten at the Bondi Farmers Markets on Saturday. I bought a pack of 6,...READ ON»
Berry - a winter paradise

Berry – a winter paradise

I was lucky enough to visit Berry last month, a beautiful town south of Sydney. I do love my city, but like most, I also love getting away now and again. The air is crisp and clean there, and there’s a beautiful stillness that you don’t get in urban areas....READ ON»
