Biographical Notes

Dick & James Strawbridge are experts in the Good Life - and it's the life they've led at Newhouse Farm, their smallholding in Cornwall, in the southwest of England. With just 3 acres of land in the midst of a village they produced an abundance of good things to eat and drink: fruits and vegetables that they eat fresh, juice, ferment and preserve, pigs for ham, sausages, salamis and bacon, a mixed flock of birds for eggs and eating, and bees for honey - to name a few. It's a lifestyle driven by their desire to eat well every day.

Dick & James appear regularly on TV in the UK and Australia. The whole family featured on the BBC's It's Not Easy Being Green - which documented their move to Newhouse Farm. Dick is a regular host of C4's Scrapheap Challenge, contributes frequently to Coast on the BBC and came 2nd place on the BBC's Celebrity Masterchef, showcasing his cooking talent. Dick & James appear together on ITV1's The Hungry Sailors and Saturday Farm. When they're not on location, tending the garden, feeding the animals or cooking and eating, they're spreading the word and sharing what they've learned. Previous books in the Made at Home series include Preserves, Eggs & Poultry, Curing & Smoking, Vegetables and Cheese & Dairy.

Seriously Good! Gluten Free Baking

Phil Vickery
Authors:
Phil Vickery

This is a collection of 70 mouthwatering gluten-free baking recipes that coeliacs have until now only been able to dream about. Baking is often the most difficult aspect of the gluten-free diet to overcome, as it is gluten that gives bread its elasticity and cakes their spring. Recipes for delicious gluten-free cakes, puddings and pastries are hard to find - all too often the results are disappointingly crumbly and dry. But Phil Vickery's easy-to-follow instructions and practical advice, which draw on his Michelin-honed cooking skills, will have you whipping up melt-in-the-mouth Blueberry Cheescake, Chestnut and Roasted Onion Bread, Springy Scones and Squidgy Chocolate Brownies in an instant.
