Father's Office Coeliac review

Father’s Office

Next to the Victorian State Library is a hole in the wall that leads you to a wonderland of gluten-free food options. Be sure to keep an eye out for the sign and deceptively small stairway entrance to Father’s Office at 249 Little Lonsdale St. The stairwell transforms into a double staircase with a library wallpaper décor; befitting any gentleman’s workspace. At the top of the stairs the restaurant opens up…

Hart & Soul Soups

Hart & Soul Soups

The first time I heard of Hart & Soul it was because I’d received one of their original Cup of Soups in an AGFL box. Back then they were sold quite cheap at Woolworths so I grabbed a few to try out for lunch. The Cup of Soups gluten free varieties include; Green Curry, Pho and Tom Yum. The Green Curry and Pho both contain Konjac noodles while the Tom Yum is…


Gluten Free Expo 16

Another amazing weekend of gluten free fun at the Melbourne Gluten Free expo has come to an end. For those of you who couldn’t be there, want to relive the fun, or know what to expect next year I’ve got a rundown for you. Brody and I decided we’d make it an early start this year and arrived at the convention centre at 9am. Despite the doors not opening until 9.30am,…

Gluten Free Candy Corn Cheesecake

Candy Corn Cheesecake

What better way to treat your friends this Halloween then with a Candy Corn Cheesecake. While not spooky in itself, Candy Corn has been associated with Halloween for a very long time in America. I thought I’d recreate a dessert inspired by the popular candy for you all this year. That meant finding out exactly what gave Candy Corn its well-known flavour. It turns out that marshmallow is added during…


Converting Recipes to Gluten Free

In the early days when I began creating gluten free recipes it was just a simple transfer. I’d look at a recipe in a cook book and trial it over and over again until it was perfectly gluten free. It is true that some recipes will work with a straight conversion. However this will depend on the type of gluten free flour mix you use as much as the recipe itself. That’s…

Abbotts Village Bakery gluten free bread

Abbotts Village Bakery

Last week on social media Abbotts Village bakery began advertising their new gluten free bread. Their mean tweets campaigns are hilarious and can be viewed on their facebook page. Last week I was able to find them in Coles at Airport West so I grabbed both of them. They retail for $6.99 and claim that the bread is ‘Soft like it should be’. The first thing to talk about is…

This month we have a great little range from instant meals to great Paleo fruit snacks. Let’s discuss! Mexican Express Instant Nachos to go The best thing about this tiny box full of Nachos is just how convenient it…

Gluten Free Crispy Buttermilk Chicken

Crispy Buttermilk Chicken

If you haven’t already figured out, crumbed chicken is a favourite of mine. From the Tumeric and Cheese Chicken Schnitzel to the Chicken Kiev with a twist. Finally I now also have crispy buttermilk chicken strips. With origins strongly rooted in Southern USA, the dish consists of chicken marinated in seasoned buttermilk and then coated and traditionally fried. My season mix is a blend of Cajun spice, turmeric and some…
