  • The Nosh Team - Hey Sarah, so glad you are addicted to our recipes :-) Proper fan if you have all of our books!! thanks. In terms of Christmas, cake mum did a recipe in NOSH GLUTEN-FREE BAKING on page 38. So if you haven't found it already check it out, it's the right time of year now too :-) I still use the NOSH FOR STUDENTS book too, I haven't been a student for 15 years now! I am sorry to say though, we don't do any course on GF/SF cooking, we are too busy creating new books for you to add to your collection. We are on Periscope though if you want to see some cooking demos of the recipe experiments for new books, we had a little break, we should be back on there soon.

  • Sarah morrison - So delicious and totally addictive! I have all your books but the gf/sf is so helpful and brilliant. Have you got a recipe for gf/sf Christmas/Easter/celebration cake and menu ideas for those occasions? Do you run short courses on gf/sf? Preferably distance learning as I live outside Aberdeen. Thank you for your very helpful and clear books - I still use student vol. 1 even though my children are long finished student days! Hoping for a reply - thank you in anticipation.
