National Cookie Day is celebrated Dec 4th each year. It takes place in the U.S day and celebrates the virtues of the cookie. Although Australia doesn’t have it’s own day to pay respect to this delicious sweet snack, we decided to celebrate it anyway! As well as cooking up loads of yummy cookies for the team at Well and Good, we’ve pulled together a list of amazing gluten free biscuit recipes for you to bake at home.
Share your favourite recipe and WIN!
We’d like to expand the number of cookie recipes on our website for our viewers. If you have a favourite gluten free recipe that you’d like to share, we’d love for you to send it with us. Email your recipe to nate @ wellandgood.com.au and the first five submissions will receive a special thank you prize.
Eating some of the world’s favourite bread in your own home doesn’t have to be difficult. You can visit your local supermarket and pick up a crusty baguette or soft pita bread easy – or can you? For those on a gluten free diet there are a growing number of sandwich breads on the market; however, other types of gluten free bread are few and far between and the quality varies greatly.
There’s a simple answer to getting access to the world’s best breads in gluten free format. Bake it yourself. It’s extremely rewarding pulling a delicious loaf of bread out of the oven and surprisingly easy. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite international breads which can be baked fresh in your own home – without a bread maker.
1. Ciabatta Roll
A white roll which originated from Italy in response to the popularity of French baguettes. Perfect for sandwiches or sliced on an angle and served with olive oil and salt for dipping.
A soft, slightly leavened bread originating in the Near East. Ideal for kids lunches as a wrap or pita pocket filled with nutritional fillings; as a pizza base; or cut into pieces and served with hummus, olive oil and feta dip.
The team at Well and God are getting very excited! The Gluten Free Expo Melbourne kicks off this weekend and we’re really looking forward to meeting loads of customers who have been coming to this expo for many years now. Over this time we have built many friendships that extend beyond a buyer-seller relationship. So be sure to come down and say hi.
Sam has baked a big selection of cakes to sample for free. There will also be some exciting Expo-only sales over the weekend so that you can stock up.
A few tips if it’s your first time to this Expo
Get there early to avoid the crowd.
Bring a basket or trolley to make carrying your purchases easy.
Definitely have a chat with Sam at our stand if you have any gluten free baking questions. He is very passionate about this topic and will be more than happy to help you out.
Leave buying chilled items until the end of your visit.
