Intro

What's WIDE CIRCLE COOKING about?
I blog information, news and recipes about gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, alcohol-free and vegan cooking. Right now I've been working on an exciting project where I avoid refined sugar and create recipes using a range of healthier alternatives.

Happy cooking!

ps. ask all guests if they have an allergy (because the recipes use some unusual combinations and they may not expect to find citrus and soya in the chocolate cake, for example).
pps.if you are cooking for someone with an allergy, please read my allergy page first.

Read my new column!

I'm really happy to announce I have a new regular slot in the Guardian newspaper's Saturday 'Cook' supplement! This is where my recipes will be for the time being (unless I get super organised and manage to post a few here too!)

I'll still be updating on news etc. so keep looking, plus there will be links to my Guardian webpage.

So far we've had Patatas Bravas Soup with egg-free Alioli and Chocolate and cherry creme brulee... yum yum yum...

Caterers for vegan and gluten-free diets


Ah, it is so lovely to have an alluring shot of a plate of beautiful cupcakes on my blog. Sadly, these haven't been made by me! But if your mouth is watering, then you're not the only one. These delicious cakes are from multi-award-winning catering company Sweetcheeks, which provides vegan and gluten-free catering for anyone who wants an inclusive selection of treats. I couldn't ignore their lovely stand at the Allergy & Free From Show (pictured below) – tasty and stylish. They also offer cookery lessons and cake decorating parties.


Also worth checking out is Nia's Foods – I had a great chat with Nia herself and can tell you her vegan and gluten-free lemon meringue pie is AWESOME, with a crisp base, tangy lemon layer and an extraordinary 'meringue' topping complete with a crispy crust. She'll even deliver within London zones 1-4 and some other areas.
