Hello, I’m Antonia!
I am a free-from food blogger and baker born and bred in Yorkshire, based in Southwark, London. I have been living in London for over six years, but so far no one has managed to take the Yorkshire out of me… yet!
I was recently diagnosed with Narcolepsy Type 1, a rare neurological disorder which causes my brain to send me to sleep whenever I am supposed to be awake and to fall or collapse when I experience intense emotions, such as laughter or surprise. I am also gluten intolerant and struggle with a number of dietary issues, which I am slowly getting to the bottom of.
Narcolepsy is a very strange condition and can be quite difficult to treat. I am still learning what works for me, but so far I’ve noticed that reducing sugar and carbohydrates helps me to feel a little less sleepy.
My blog was initially a gluten free blog, but I have opened it up to include other intolerances and dietary needs now that my own needs have changed. You’ll still find the same passion for good food, but you’ll also find more dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free and low carb recipes as well.
When I’m not asleep, I am busy developing recipes, drinking tea and playing endless games of fetch with my cat – I’m also interested in photography, painting, music history and occasionally chat about my love of musical theatre on the MusicalTalk podcast. I am also teaching myself to sew.
All the recipes on my blog are 100% gluten free. I am working through my back catalogue of recipes and will provide a list of dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free, or low carb on my recipes page – I am also reworking old recipes to make them more suitable for people with multiple intolerances.
Any products mentioned or recommended on the blog are ones that I have tried and tested myself.
