Cheese Straws

It's party season, which means cheese straws!

1 oz corn flour
4 oz brown rice flour
4 oz margarine
4 oz grated soya cheese

These are also great with sheep cheese if you can tolerate it.  Most supermarkets sell Spanish Manchego or French Ossu iraty which are lovely hard cheeses made from ewe's milk.

Xmas treats 2012

The makers of Fabulous fudge factory dairy free fudge are now doing some great choc covered raisins, now stocked in Sainsburys. They are seriously good:

Also, celtic chocs are doing little santa choc selections (containing  GF DFchoc bars, buttons and caramels) and a not particularly inspiring but delicious choc advent calendar (but then I do really prefer a traditional non-choc picture calendar where you have to hunt for the doors!...).

I also got to try Moofree chocs this Christmas which are soo nice, thanks to my sister in law. They sell them in Bristol Guild and Waitrose stock them, but apparently you can also get them online at amazon!
