Recipes

Our recipes are “allergy-friendly”, by this we mean they are either free from the main allergens (for example egg, milk, soya) or we give tried and tested tips for substituting key ingredients. 

We have taken the decision to include some recipes which contain fish and wheat. 

Please get in touch if there is a recipe you’re craving or if you have one you’d like to share!
