Freelance

Whilst having a gluten intolerance and IBS might seem more of a nuisance than anything else, for me it has enabled me to get my voice out there and help others. I am an incredibly passionate individual & I love nothing more than getting my teeth stuck into projects.

Whether that be writing reviews, recipe creation, video blogging, photography, baking in front of the camera, events or something completely new… I really am up for any challenge! I’m proud to have pitched in with the following brands so please feel free to read a little about the collaborations I’ve done in the past.

Tefal

I’ve always used Tefal cookware ever since I bought my first wok when I was a student. Oh, it wasn’t Tefal by the way – hence why everything constantly got stuck to it and I ended up throwing it in the bin! Mark’s Mum kindly gave me one of her Tefal pans and I’ve never looked back.

Little did I know that many years later I’d be working with Tefal! It was pretty much the coolest day of 2017 so far. I walked around Whitecross Street Market in London searching for the best gluten free dish so Tefal could recreate it in their kitchen. You can watch the video below or by clicking here.

Peroni

I love when a brand invites me to work with them in person! Being based in London, I’m more than happy to get away from my keyboard and on the tube somewhere new and exciting. Peroni got in touch and asked me to head down to the Taste of London Food Festival 2017 where they had an amazing cocktail bar with, you guessed it – gluten free Peroni!

They asked me to take a few snaps which was exceptionally easy when their bar looked so wonderful and their gluten free cocktails were so vibrant! You can check out one of the photos below, or view the full post here.

Pure Free From

I seem to be heading into London more and more these days (which is lucky for me as I live so close by!) and this time, it was to visit Pure Free From as a guest on their Facebook live baking show. I can’t emphasise how much fun I had doing this!

Steve & Amanda are just amazing at what they do, so I was just happy to be a part of it. I was in charge of the chat for the evening and I even got to hit a massive Piñata with a stick! What more could a girl want? We had so much fun, that I was even invited back for the second and third week!

Pure Live: Episode 1 – Gluten and Dairy-Free Hot Cross Bun Bre…

Join us LIVE for Easter antics and competitions, while Amanda and Steve whip up a gluten-free, dairy-free Hot Cross Bun Bread and Butter Pudding…

Sacla’ UK

I was lucky enough to be invited down to Sacla’s HQ in February to join fellow blogger Planetbased Pixie and MD of Sacla’, Claire Blampied for a live Q&A. It was my first time going live on a brand’s Facebook page but it was so much fun!

It was so nice just to meet like-minded people when it comes to food (especially where the word ‘healthy’ is concerned) and it was a little surreal to see everyone in the chat getting involved too! You watch it below:

John Lewis

In February of 2017, I was kindly invited by John Lewis to attend a smoothie making event hosted by Madeleine Shaw. She helped me craft the perfect smoothie, which I nicknamed ‘Berry Early’ (get it? because it’s for when you wake up? oh, nevermind…)

Anyway, it was featured on John Lewis’ website with the recipe for everyone to try out! I had a great time attending the event and hope everyone enjoys making my smoothie 🙂 Click here to view the smoothie masterclass results!

Tescos: Christmas 2016

I was both nervous and excited when I was asked to be in a Christmas advert for Tescos, but as you know, I’m always up for a new challenge! I arrived at a quant looking house in North London where myself, another food blogger and two professional chefs (one of whom was a runner-up in Masterchef: The Professionals!) arrived along with the dreaded in-laws to surprise an unsuspecting Dad.

As a stranger to the kitchen, his daughter Ailani kindly helped him put on a spread fit for a room full of challenging/hard to please guests! I’m not that scary, am I? 😉 See how it turned out by watching below or by clicking here.

Kenwood

When Kenwood asked me to team up with them to promote their ‘Disaster Chef’ competition, I was immediately glad to hear that it wasn’t because they thought I was a disaster in the kitchen! I took a trip to London for the day where I baked my favourite banana bread recipe, filmed by Kenwood’s film crew.

This recipe video was created so that competition contestants could bake-along and share their results to win a Kenwood mixer! You can watch the video below 🙂 or just click here!

Tescos: Free From Picnic

When Tescos expanded their Free From range, I was mega excited! But I was even more excited to be invited to their very own Free From Picnic, showcasing all their amazing creations. I was accompanied by two of my favourite fellow bloggers and you can view the result below or by clicking right here.

Betty Crocker

One of my favourite baking brands before becoming gluten intolerant was Betty Crocker. I was over the moon when I heard they were moving into gluten free and it was an absolute dream that I could work with them to help let everyone know about it!

I created two recipe posts which transformed a gluten free brownie mix and a gluten free chocolate chip cookie mix into something super special… you can check them out here and here.

The Allergy & Free From Show

I absolutely love The Allergy Show! We’ve teamed up a bunch of times, mostly where I’ve created videos showing how much fun Europe’s best Free From focussed show truly is. My most recent creation is below, but you can view a few previous ones here & here.

Genius Gluten Free

In May 2015, I worked with Genius Gluten Free to raise awareness of Coeliac Disease and Gluten Intolerance during Coeliac Awareness Week. I spoke alongside Lucinda Bruce Gardyne live across the radio waves on BBC, commercial and digital radio stations. I spoke of my experiences as a gluten intolerant and gave my advice in dining out gluten free. I always wanted to be a Radio DJ so this was a pretty unreal day for me!

Holland & Barrett

I spent much of 2015 working alongside Holland & Barrett, promoting their free from expansion. They asked me to create multiple pieces to promote their brand new free from store in Chester. Click here to click out my tour of their new free from store! I also created gluten free haul video and attended the store launch. Don’t forget to click here to view my story over at Holland & Barrett!

Not bad, hey? If you’re interested in teaming up with me in any form, I would love to hear from you. For paid freelance work feel free to contact me via my contact page. Throw me some interesting info & I’ll throw you back some friendly passion.

Thanks for reading!
