Xmas is just around the corner or literally just one more turn of the page on the calendar, so thoughts turn to the Christmas lunch or the Christmas gift…. gluten free of course. And all the extras that go with a family Christmas.

We love our food. We love our food traditions. We love sharing food with our family. And every year we, family members discuss for many weeks, the answers to the question : WHAT ARE WE GOING TO HAVE FOR CHRISTMAS? Reality is, that we haven’t had to make too many changes to accommodate a ‘gluten free’ Christmas: gf Worcestershire sauce, gf crackers, gf lasagne sheets, gf cereals for rum balls and Bumble Bees. Below is a menu from 2013 but I am sure we won’t stray too much from this list. The phone calls haven’t started yet, but I am looking forward to all that goes with Christmas including the discussions back and forth, the making of lists, the shopping, the planning and then sitting down and enjoying.

I picked up the latest free Coles magazine and found that it is not only jammed packed full of recipes for the festive season but also that many recipes are gluten free by ingredient, are tagged gluten free or can be made gluten free with the substitution of a few ingredients.
While a number of meals will not inspire my gf teenager, I often still make them and hope that his tastes will mature in time and a taste test now, might leave him open to new foods.
Here is a list of some of the recipes that caught my eye:
Pumpkin, Spinach and Brie Frittata
Paprika Fish with Corn Avocado Salsa (substitute flour)
Mexican Corn and Prawn Salad
White Chocolate Raspberry Baked Cheesecake (substitute with gluten free biscuits and chocolate melts)
The Perfect Pavlova
Roast Chicken with Apple, Sage and Rosemary Stuffing and Cranberry Relish (substitute with gluten free bread crumbs)
Apple Salad with Raspberry Dressing
Chocolate Nougat Ice-Cream
Roast Vegetable with Sage Butter
Almond and Marmalade Glazed Ham
