When my cookbook collection threatened to overwhelm my home I decided it was time to start cooking, time to start experimenting and time to start using all those beautifully bound books lining my shelves, piled on my floor and peeking out from under my bed. I might be addicted to cookbooks. I’m also addicted to my spice collection, little vegetables, old kitchen utensils and marmalade.

About a year ago I thought my enjoyment of all things food was about to end, my hypothyroidism flared up and after reading, researching and whole lot of ‘mourning bread & pasta’ I went gluten free. The sackcloth and ashes didn’t last long… flipping through my piles of cookbooks I was determined to make my gluten free life as full of incredible food as I could. Saffron & Nutmeg documents my leap into gluten free living; join me for the ride as I feature the cookbooks I own and my gluten free adaptations, and creations.

My most lovely, honest and regular tasting companion is Tim. We look after a collection of succulent plants, attempt to grow food, and love vintage fabric. I am still on the hunt for the perfect gluten free bread recipe to go with thickly spread marmalade & butter… it will happen, and I will share it with you when I find it.
