Gluten Free Croquembouche ***

The croquembouche is a traditional dessert for occasions such as weddings or christenings in France. It combines several techniques, so the best way to make one is to go one step at a time. This is probably one of the most complex recipes I’ve converted since becoming coeliac and it is one of my specialties 🙂 You’ll need two…

Choux pastry **

Choux pastry was one of my specialities before I learned that I was coeliac. So it was one of the first things I converted to gluten-free 🙂 The most important thing to make gorgeous looking choux is picking the right rice flour. It needs to be finely ground, and I prefer mine whole and organic….

Pear tart Tatin **

I love apples and pears, and when I have some time on my hands, I usually make them into a tart Tatin 🙂 True, this recipe from Normandy is traditionally apples only, but you can give it a twist with pears (from Normandy 😉 ) or add your favourite spices. For this recipe, you can replace…

Rosemary, mustard and tomato tart *

Summer is here, let the tomato season begin! It’s still a little early for garden tomatoes, but not for the ones from the farmer’s market 😉 This recipe is perfect for warm the afternoons and cool nights of May. It is super easy to make in a jiffy, if you have an impromptu get together…

Savoury buckwheat galette *

Looking for a healthy and filling breakfast? Or a quick lunch? This traditional recipe from Brittany is perfect for you. This savoury galette is an ideal base for creativity! You can add asparagus and an egg, like me, or anything you’d like 🙂 I think next time I’ll go pizza style… What do you think?…

Lemon and cardamom cake *

Another cake recipe under the belt! Slow cooked for extra moisture, with lemon zest and juice for a perfect balance 🙂 And a little cardamon to make things interesting 😉 Ingredients: 200g of softened butter 150g of sugar 3 eggs 1 pinch of salt 200g of gluten free flour 10 ground cardamons (without their green…

Chocolate cheesecake and meringue **

Chocolate is back, but this time, it’s a cheesecake 🙂 I love how these almost raw cakes are fluffy and light (when they’re not too thick) and they’re so tasty and pretty. This recipe is gluten free and quite lower in added sugar than your traditional recipe. It is best to start making this cheesecake…

Vegan asparagus risotto *

When comes spring, so does the asparagus 🙂 Whether you like them green or white, it’s one of my favourite vegetables of the season, I have them with everything! Here they are perfect to balance the creaminess of this risotto with a bit of crunchiness and their bright green colour. I made this for a…

Strawberry Mille Feuille **

I love strawberries don’t you? Especially when they come from a local producer and he lets you by them 5kg at a time 😉 But then, what should we do with them? Strawberry mille feuilles of course 😉 Ingredients: (for 4 medium sized mille feuilles) For the cream: 250ml of soya milk 1/2 tsp of…

Creamy hummus dip *

Super creamy hummus dip moment today 🙂 I love this dish, it’s perfect with raw veggies, on top of baked potatoes… with everything! It is the easiest recipe, except for the part where you have to peel the chickpeas. It’s a bit long, but makes it much more creamy than usual. Ingredients: 250g of canned chickpeas 3…

Very berry tarts **

Sweet treats coming your way 🙂 I always find myself staring at those mouthwatering pastries in the bakery’s windows and wish they were all gluten free. Here in Dijon finding a good gluten free spot is always a challenge, so here is my recipe for super delicious tarts so you can eat your pastry favourites wherever you are…

Mushroom and rosemary ravioli *

Gluten free homemade ravioli on the menu today. This is really is happiness to me 🙂 I though that being gluten free would make my life so much more complicated (and it did) but it was also such a great opportunity to create things I never thought I’d succeed in creating, like this pasta recipe I’m sharing with you…
