I have always considered myself quite a nice person. I like food of all shapes, flavours and colours. From every country and continent. I don’t discriminate, I am an equal opportunity eater. It’s only the doctors who say I’m intolerant. And certain foods who refuse to tolerate me. They certainly refuse to recognise and respect my right to eat them without major physical discomfort and distress.

Gluten and lactose are not my friends.

Despite the negative attitudes surrounding me from many of those I love best, (cakes, ice cream, hot toast) I decided to become a chef. Not always easy when you live in a bread and milk filled world. I like to think that this has helped me become a better person as I embrace my differences and refuse to let the gluten get me down. I believe InTolerance. I am the InTolerant Chef.

Food should not be about what you can’t eat, but what you can and what you enjoy eating. This blog is about my journey of cooking and eating and discovery. It’s not a definitive guide to allergy awareness nor do my intolerances make me an expert. Your body is your responsibility, not mine. I only know what works for me.

I can tell you this..... No glutens were harmed in the making of this website.

Disclosure Policy

I like stuff.

If I like some Thing or some Product in particular I'll probably mention it on my blog, and tell you why it's so special. Usually it's just to share the love, but now and then I am approached by a product, company, individual or PR company asking me my opinion on their stuff in particular.

Sometimes the product is a freebie- hoping I'll fall in love with it, sometimes I'm paid to say what I think- even better! But I can assure you that all opinions are my very own, and won't be swayed by payments of either cash or gifted products- but feel free to send them anyway :)

When a post or product is sponsored in any way, I will let you know with a little mention at the end of the post.

Unless a product is absolutely inappropriate or completely bizarre, I follow the old adage of 'If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all'  so I reserve my right as the owner of this blog to not post about them, but will let the promoter know what I think for their edification.

If you have a product/restaurant/proposal/sponsorship/recipe development/cookbook deal/offer that you would like to discus with me, particularly in the field of InTolerant matters, feel free to send me an email at
