About Me

Born in Scotland in 1948, I moved to Dublin Ireland in 1952 where I've lived since.
.
In May 2005 I decided to stop smoking and believe this was the trigger for my Coeliac Disease.

Smoking Protects against the developement of Adult Coeliac Disease
.
After formal diagnosis by Blood tests, Biopsy and stool tests, I met with the dietitian.
They informed me I needed to avoid, Wheat, Barley, Rye, Oats and derivatives and I need to eat only Gluten Free items.

I thought
'How bad could that be' ?
.
Boy was I in for a rude awakening,
.
The bread tasted like re-constituted sawdust!
The cakes were dry and loaded with sugar to hide the 'gritty aftertaste'
The Pizza Bases, We'll I'm being kind by saying the cardboard packaging had more palatability.
.
That did it, 'This was a fate worse than death' No more decent bread or 'goodies'.
That drove me to do something about it, I looked at cookbooks , regular and Gluten Free and started watching
the Food Channels on TV.
.
I eventually managed to teach myself to bake.

My Websites are a place of reference for all things Celiac/Diabetic.
