Vegan flavouring? What do vegans taste like?

Ever eaten a vegan? No me neither. I don’t know what they taste like but I’d probably be allergic to vegans since they consume a lot of nuts to get protein into their diets.

FeelFree gluten, dairy, egg and soya free pasta

Home-made gluten, wheat and dairy free mince pies

You don’t need to miss out the Christmas festive goodies, most supermarkets stock gluten free mince pies now. If you also need to avoid dairy and nuts, you might like to try making your own. I think they’re better than the shop bought gluten free ones and even, dare I say it, as good as […]
