Welcome to ‘Lucy’s Friendly Foods’. I am a long term UK based vegetarian who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in both cuisine and patisserie. Whilst my day job isn’t connected with food (yet!) I love to cook whenever I can.
My main focus is ‘friendly’ cooking since both my daughters have multiple food allergies and I am on mission to recreate any recipe (within reason) so that they can enjoy the same as everyone else. All of my recipes are free from dairy, eggs, peanuts and sesame seeds; most are also free from all tree nuts and soya; some are also free from wheat and gluten; all are vegetarian and ‘accidentally’ vegan! You may have noticed that cake features heavily!
My recipes have been featured online at VegNews, the Waitrose website, Finding Vegan, Taste Spotting and Brilliant Baking Mag. In print I have featured in The Guardian Cook magazine and Free-from Heaven Magazine.
I’m at my happiest developing recipes in my kitchen and will happily take on commissions for recipe development, reviewing and consultancy. Please contact me for any further information.
The Friendly Baker is a cookbook for everyone, featuring delicious baking recipes for all seasons that are suitable for various allergies and intolerances including dairy, egg, peanut, and sesame. From savoury snacks and easy breads to celebration cakes and teatime treats, there’s something for every occasion with over 75 naturally plant-based recipes that the whole family can enjoy.
