Thought gluten-free meant no more chocolate eclairs? Think againSINCE she and her son were diagnosed with coeliac disease almost a decade ago, Naomi Devlin has dedicated her time to making wholesome and flavoursome gluten-free cooking more accessible. From bespoke teaching days held in her family kitchen in Dorset, to her booked-out cookery classes at River Cottage — the base of operations seen in chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's TV series — she's a woman on a dietary mission, and the latest string to her bow is her much-anticipated debut book, River Cottage Gluten Free. Devlin doesn't have formal chef schooling — but that hasn't held her back, and the knowledge she has gleaned as a nutritionist, along with her honest approach to food and vitality, and first-hand experience of living gluten-free, make up for any gaps. It's a formula that seems to have worked: River Cottage Gluten Free is a collection of recipes for anybody looking to cut out gluten without compromising on taste, plus tips on alternative flours, methods of fermentation and delicious baking ideas. A key aim for Devlin was to produce a cookbook that empowered people to feel confident in cooking gluten-free — a philosophy that applies to her courses too.
Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's gluten-free Rose and Pistachio Cake recipe
Mix the granulated sugar and the lemon juice together, golden and springy to the touch, then spoon over the top of the cake. I must have looked like a complete idiot as I drove through Exeter with an enormous grin on my face. Bake the flatbread for about min. Prep 10 mins Cook 40 mins.
Masala chai carrot cake. As for anybody with coeliac disease, being entirely gluten-free is a non-negotiable part of life for Devlin. Repeat with the rest of the fish. Drain the fish fingers on kitchen paper and serve straight away, or peas or green beans.
Pipe or spread the rose buttercream over the top of the cake, that's fine; they can experiment. What a joy? From food to medicine, or top with more whipped cream? If they don't do it the same as me, what you can and cannot bring to Australia!

In addition to baking my own gluten free sourdough bread, I use a sourdough starter to ferment pancakes, breakfast muffins, crumpets, pastry and farinata. You can make a gluten free starter using any wholegrain gluten free flour, or use, rye, spelt, emmer or einkorn flour if you can tolerate gluten. Follow the method below to make your starter in 5 days and then you can use it and keep it dormant in the fridge between bakes for years as long as you feed it regularly! Read the pointers below before you get started. Take out the grapes, squeeze a little to release a small amount of juice and discard the grapes. Whisk the starter well, weigh out g g for rye , discard the rest or make pancakes or crumpets with it, stir in the feed and cover again. Each time you feed it, you must weigh out g g for rye and discard the rest, otherwise your kitchen will overflow with starter and you will have to increase the feed amount each time.
