About me

Gender Female
Occupation Web Designer
Location Oxford, United Kingdom
Introduction I wasn't born with allergies, far less food allergies and coeliac disease, things I never thought I'd be dealing with. My symptoms crept up slowly over the years, then reached crisis point sometime around 2-3 years ago. After a lot of research, reading and finally paying up for a private doctor on Jan 2010, I found my path again, although it does seem I have a few more allergies that have crept up since that time. I started this blog as a means of giving my boyfriend, Mr Umami, a resource for when he'd like to cook for me since I need to adapt even my gluten-free recipes substantially. It's a sort of S.O.P for cooking for me, but I hope other people find it useful as well. Please check out the recipe index to find recipes alphabetically by main ingredients, or get inspired by checking out my bookmarks on delicious. Quod Te Nutrite means "what nourishes you". Salud!
