Hi there, welcome to my about page, thanks so much for checking it out. I’m Liz and live in Cheshire, UK with my husband Neil.
After working at Juvela Gluten Free Foods for seven years on the advice line and writing a blog feature for their monthly newsletter, I launched my own personal blog, ‘Coeliac by Design’ in May 2018.
The purpose of my blog, is to help promote coeliac awareness, highlight the importance of a gluten free diet once diagnosed and to help ensure, that anybody needing to follow a gluten free diet, never feels they are missing out.
As a a trained chef, I’m also eager to share the knowledge I’ve gained whilst working in the food and catering industry for over 20 years. With the hope it may help others, that either need to follow or safely cater for anybody that requires a gluten free diet.
I’ve followed a gluten free diet since 2003, when I was diagnosed with coeliac disease (you can read more about my diagnosis here). And whilst I am a trained chef, I feel that I’m much better qualified as a good home ‘cook’ (and much prefer this title) and real food lover. Marvellous attributes that I’m so grateful for. And ones that have always meant that I’ve never let my gluten free diet interfere with my continued enjoyment of great food.
My passion for great food that thrills me, makes me seek out the very best gluten free recipes and options. And they are the only things I will tell you about. So, you can guarantee that if I’m raving about something it’s because I think it’s good and love it!
I hope you find my blog a positive place to visit and explore. And that you enjoy all I offer up; in the form of recipes, reviews and other random suggestions, that hopefully inspire you to cook, bake and tuck into great food!
