From Gluten to Glutton

Welcome to my world,

My name is CJ (Ciara-Jayne) and I am an avid foodie who happens to be coeliac.  I currently live in London, and have ties to both Holland and Ireland, hence the Half Dutch Cookie.

Being diagnosed in 2012 as coeliac hasn’t always been easy however a number of years later and I adore all things food – how to make it, how to cook it, how to grow it and where to eat it. In some ways being coeliac has been a blessing in disguise – it’s taught me more about food than I ever knew and has introduced me to some amazing ingredients, recipes and conversations. Good food fuels the body and the soul!

I love nothing more than discovering the best brunch spots and travelling the world exploring new places. A few fun facts about me:

  • Breakfast is my favourite meal 
  • I speak both dutch and german 
  • I love to paint (badly) 
  • I always wanted to be a TV presenter 
  • I am obsessed with tea (Barry’s mainly) 

If you have any questions, love gluten free food too or want to collaborate please contact me using the email address thehalfdutchcookie@gmail.com or see the contact page.
