Jewelled Persian Rice with Pomegranates, Walnuts & Parsley

We're big rice eaters; it's definitely one of our staples. Recently, I've become completely enthralled with Middle Eastern cooking and am enjoying being swept up in the rhapsodic flavours of spice mixes like ras-el-hanout and rediscovering the juicy sweetness of plump Medjool dates and figs. So when a PR rep got in touch to ask if I'd be interested in reviewing Amira Superior Aromatic Rice by recreating a Persian rice recipe, I leapt at the chance!

A Night at Clevedon Hall & Dining with Chef Alan Jones

I review the luxurious wedding venue cum conference centre & boutique hotel as well as a stunning four course meal from Chef Alan Jones!

The Buzzard Room at Clevedon Hall Review from Anyonita Nibbles Gluten Free

The weekend of my birthday, I was invited to visit Clevedon Hall, a stunning manor house in North Somerset. The weekend promised to be a wonderful experience--spending some time in a historic property and trialing food by the renowned chef Alan Jones. I'll be honest, while I was excited about the opportunity to review such a beautiful hotel, wedding venue and conference facility, I was most ecstatic about trying Chef Alan's food.

Smoothies are fantastic ways to inject some healthy fruit and veg into your life. The idea for this smoothie came when I was reminiscing about lime sherbet--you know that classic punch served at every wedding in America? That's what this tastes like, but without the unhealthy sherbet!  It's also a great way to use up some leftover fruits before they go off.

Gluten Free Sundried Tomato and Bacon Chicken with Feta and Basil

Butterfly chicken breast. The easiest way to ensure juicy chicken and one of the first ways I learned how to make chicken breast. In the Art Deco kitchen of one of the Quad residence halls on the UNCG campus my sophomore year at uni, my roommate stands over a plate with a fruit knife, nearly halving chicken breasts. Although her technique was amateurish, the chicken was incredible and it surely one of the best things ever to come out of a college dorm.

Gluten Free Salted Caramel & Cacao Macarons

Cacao is the raw ingredient chocolate is made from and is one of the most chemically complex foods known to man. For this recipe, I used Creative Nature's cacao powder, an organic powder ground from the popular Criollo beans. The thing I love most about cacao powder is that you still get a lovely chocolatey taste without the usual concerns associated with chocolate.

Gluten Free Afternoon Tea with Udi's

Afternoon tea is such a decadent and indulgent treat. It's a time for sumptuous sandwiches, delicious desserts and a hearty brew. By nature, sandwiches and sponge cake are chock full of gluten. Finding a coeliac-friendly tea is pretty hard to come by, so instead, I've partnered with Udi's to showcase some of their amazing products and develop recipes suitable for any gluten free afternoon tea.

I'll be sharing recipes for gluten free vanilla cake with salted caramel frosting and two gluten free sandwich recipes: grilled paneer and sun-dried tomato and smoked salmon and cucumber. I served the three of these with fresh strawberry lemonade, English breakfast tea and Udi's gluten free lemon wafers.

25 Gluten Free Cinco de Mayo Recipes

I love Mexican food and Cinco de Mayo is the perfect opportunity for relishing in a bit of gauc and a cheeky shot or two of tequila!

Gluten-Free Cinco de Mayo Recipes

Mexican food is characterised by intense flavours: lime, chili and coriander come together in dozens of dishes to create a unique and delicious combination that's pretty hard to resist. But with all of its loveliness, quite a lot of Mexican food isn't friendly for Coeliacs. There's gluten in flour tortillas. Which means soft tacos, burritos and enchiladas are out.

Beat My Price: Treat Your Favourite Foodie to a Gourmet Buffet

As a self-certified foodie, I'm interested in all things food. Whether it's learning how to make a new dish, reading about food or getting my hands dirty, exercising my brain and creating a new recipe. For any occasion, be it my birthday or Christmas, I can be sure that at least half of my gifts will be food related and I wouldn't have it any other way!

One of my new-found favourite hobbies is going on foodie experiences. You know the type: strutting up to a pub or fancy restaurant and learning how to make a signature dish. Or booking on at a top restaurant, tasting the wares and being blown away by today's great chefs. I'm up for either option! So when I heard about Bespoke Offers, the first thing I did was look up all the foodie related offers!

After browsing the extensive list of cheap food deals, I decided to have a go at sourcing my dream trip: a gourmet buffet featuring legendary restaurants from some of the UK's top chefs! What I came up with was an amazing three-meal buffet, featuring food from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsay. (Insert fan girl moment!)
