About me


Hi and welcome to easyandglutenfree!

If you’ve clicked on this site, I guess it’s because you are looking for tried and tested, easy and delicious gluten free recipes, right?

Well you’ve come to the right place 🙂

So let me tell you a bit more about myself:

I’m Sophie, I’m 47 years old and I live in Switzerland with my British husband, John, and our four children.  I was born in England but grew up in Switzerland; then I met John and lived in England again with him for many years, before we came back to settle in Switzerland.  With a British dad and a Swiss mum, I really am a total mix of both nationalities and cultures.  The reason I’m telling you this, is that my cooking reflects this – on this site you’ll find recipes inspired from both my countries.

I’m not a chef, doctor or nutritionist, but I love good food!  And I have Celiac’s disease.

When I was first diagnosed with the disease, in 2010, I thought sticking to the gluten free diet would be really hard.  I used to LOVE bread, you see… nice crusty baguettes and croissants on Sunday mornings were my absolute favourites.  If I had to choose between a piece of fresh bread and some Swiss chocolate, I’d choose the bread – every time.  So going without it was difficult for me to imagine!  But as much as I loved bread, bread obviously didn’t love me, and if I wanted to get better, I had no choice but to get on with it.  So I decided to start exploring the world of gluten free options, and through trial and error, I found and invented some great recipes – not only great bread recipes, but also many others, for all sorts of other foods.

This site is going to be the home to all those lovely recipes.  I want to share them with you, so you can enjoy the taste of good, homemade, delicious gluten free food.

Bon appétit! 😉
