The idea for my gluten free iPad app, Gluten Free Me, came from my years working as a private chef. Over time, I’ve cooked for many people who absolutely love food but are limited in what they can eat due to food intolerances, allergies or health issues, especially related to gluten.

I know how hard it can be to find utterly delicious food that you are able to eat; this app is my answer to that problem.

Gluten Free Me iPad app features

Gluten Free Me contains 32 of my favourite gluten-free recipes (many of them are also dairy-free and sugar-free), with beautiful photography to illustrate each one. The app is free to download and contains five albums: one has eight free recipes and there are four more albums at £2.99 for six recipes each: Starters & Soups, Mains, Sides & Salads and Desserts & Sweet Things.

Gluten Free Recipes App

Growing up in a household that loves food, it’s tough to see someone close to you not being able to eat the things you love. That’s what it’s been like for me since childhood. My dad was diagnosed with celiac disease, and from that day wasn’t able to enjoy bread, cakes and many other meals that I could enjoy. From that day I made it my priority to help him enjoy life as much as he could despite being gluten intolerant.

My dad didn’t really use the internet until recently, and so I was the one who found him blogs, communities and ideas online designed for the gluten-free diet. was one of these and it’s been such a great help.

Fast forward a few years, I’m 23 and just quit my job to try to make a living from building iPhone apps.

One of the first apps I designed and made was a gluten-free recipe app for my dad, to thank him for his support in quitting my job and chasing my dreams. Read the rest of this entry »

Lebkuchen recipe from “Gluten-free Baking at Christmas”

An article from the talented Samantha Stein with a recipe from her latest book, “Gluten-free Baking at Christmas”.

Growing up with a Danish mother, our Christmas treats had a distinctly Scandinavian and Germanic flavour. Lebkuchen is as German as they come, and something that I had enjoyed every year before being diagnosed with coeliac disease.

Although supermarkets in the UK have started to do some Christmas food, it’s usually only the traditional British treats: mince pies, Christmas cake and Christmas pudding. The beloved recipes of my childhood are nowhere to be seen, so I took it upon myself to convert them to gluten-free, and before I knew it I had nearly a whole book! After a couple of months eating far too much cake, I had finished that book, “Gluten-free Baking at Christmas” in which this recipe is featured.

This chewy, spicy type of biscuit develops a deeper flavour if the dough is allowed to rest in the fridge overnight. These are totally addictive! Read the rest of this entry »
