When chef Gearóid Lynch was diagnosed with coeliac disease, the pleasure of cooking was briefly taken from him. Refusing to let the diagnosis limit his enjoyment of food, he created a variety of delicious, gluten-free adaptations of everyday dishes, which he shares in this book.
As well as tempting breakfasts, lunches, dinners and desserts, such as Buttermilk Scones, Camembert Quiche, Bacon and Cabbage Terrine and Apple and Pecan Crumble, there’s a section on store-cupboard staples and basics, including gluten-free bread, pizza and pasta. With a few small adjustments, those with coeliac disease will no longer miss out on their favourite meals.

In 2002 Gearóid Lynch and his wife Tara purchased the historic post-house building in Cloverhill, Co Cavan, Ireland and lovingly restored it to its original charm. Together, they run The Olde Post Inn alongside their dedicated team and it has become an award winning food destination lauded by food critics and loyal customers alike. Since his diagnosis with coeliac disease in 2013, Gearóid can adapt the majority of his menus for gluten-free diners in his restaurant.
Gearóid trained as a chef in Killybegs Tourism College and gained experience working in kitchens such as Thornton’s and Le Coq Hardi in Dublin, as well as restaurants in London and Luxembourg. He is a regular contributor to Irish media and a highly respected chef in culinary circles having been appointed to the role of Commissioner General with Eurotoques Ireland in 2011 for a two-year period.
Both from Co. Cavan, Gearóid and Tara live locally with their four children, Orán, Lorcan, Emma and Eoin.
