Hello and welcome to my brand new blog. I hope you will join me on a journey through the world of cooking for and living with allergies. I’ve always been a bit of a foodie and even trained at Le Cordon Bleu, but when my two daughters, who both have multiple food allergies, came along my whole approach to food had to change. It seems very easy to stand out as a child with food allergies, not being able to eat the same as your friends and having to be constantly careful and therefore maybe quite fearful. So I made a pledge to myself and my daughters that they would not miss out on any kind of food based experience, that I could create a substitute for anything (within reason!). So, aided by my library of cook books I will try….
Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations. View all posts by lucylox
