So, I can't quite believe that it's finally here...
After months of testing recipes and weekends spent in my kitchen prepping and photographing I'm so excited to share with you the FIRST EVER Print Edition of The Gluten Free Scallywag Magazine! Locally designed, printed, created and recipe tested in my adopted hometown of Melbourne and now here in the umm... paper!
This years magazine takes a slightly different turn, with more of a cookbook style layout and no contributors. It's just my Scallywag voice throughout. I'm already looking forward to next years edition (crazy, I know!) and have some great ideas up my sleeve and some wonderful people I want to speak to about contributing, so, that there is a wide range of recipes for you to enjoy.
After all, that's why I've done this mag; for you. Oh, ok, I'll be honest, I also had a massing craving for lamingtons, chocolate cake and cookies one day, so, I thought I'd best put them all in one place, you know, just incase anyone else ever has the same cravings as me and would find a book with all those recipes in one place super handy :)
I hope you enjoy baking from it as much as I've enjoyed putting it together for you.
To all of you who helped in putting this together, who tasted, gave feedback, listened to my self doubt worries and my squeals of delight at the first purchase. To you who checked over the copy and the mag layouts. To you Emma, Lucy, Cat, Ali and Garry, thank you guys.
Mum thanks for giving me my love of baking. Dad my love for photography. My gorgeous husband, David, for picking me up from the hospital that day and being my absolute rock throughout this 6year journey. I love you.
Finally, to my Grandad, who first called me his Scallywag. I've missed you more than ever this year but I know that you're watching. These tears are happy ones, I promise you.
