I write compulsively, about everyone and everything!Mostly, I write reviews of exhibitions in art galleries and museums, travel pieces and the occasional recipe.  I also review exhibition catalogues and art books. Occasionally, I explore gluten-free recipes, passing on the most successful recipes to my readers at Infobarrel.
My latest project is Ride the Rocket - Toronto Enabled a humorous autobiographical guide to Toronto, available om paper back and e-book formats.
I write for all sorts of sites but Infobarrel is definitely the best. If you'd like to join me sign up here.

Gluten-Free Cornish Pasty - Traditional British Staple with a Light and Crispy Pastry

If you need to follow a gluten-free diet then the traditional Cornish Pasty is definitely not something you can enjoy. However, with a little imagination the recipe can be re-invented. I've used spring roll wrappers, sometimes called rice paper pancakes, to create a crispy pastry case for our popular Cornish Pasty. Perhaps my version can't really be called a 'Cornish Pasty' without the traditional flour-based pastry case but does it matter? It's still delicious and those of us that are gluten can eat and enjoy it.
