6 of our gluten-free favourites
Here are our favourite gluten-free recipes, plus our pick of London restaurants where gluten-free doesn't mean second best! Picked on the trusted recommendation of our gluten-free designer Ellie.
These delicious, pretty cupcakes from Pippa Kendrick, aka The Intolerant Gourmet, are perfect for summer baking.
From our very own food director, Sarah Randell. This is one of our most popular and most requested recipes EVER and a regular on the magazine team's home-baking list.
Our gluten-free designer Ellie loved her afternoon tea at Anna Hansen's The Modern Pantry in London's Clerkenwell. 'I got everything that everyone else did and there was a real variety of flavours. The green tea dacquoise was amazing.’
Anna Hansen's gluten-free turmeric and chickpea chips with tahini lemon dip are ideal for weekend entertaining.
4. GBBO's Howard Middleton
We love GBBO's Howard Middleton's tips for gluten-free baking, like using quinoa flour mixed with gluten-free alternatives in your bakes for a nutty flavour.
Ellie raves about Honest Burgers: 'The gluten-free buns were delicious and not a second-rate option. They also do gluten-free onion rings!' There are Honest Burgers popping up all over London so look out if you're in Brixton, Soho, Camden, Portobello or King's Cross, or check out the brand-new branch at Oxford Circus.
If you've been to Polpo and not had dessert, you're missing the best bit! The flourless orange and almond cake is a sure thing when we order our grazing plates - it isn't one for sharing though. The cake is also in the Polpo cookbook and is Ellie's go-to favourite for home baking.
