Thank you for entering, and see you at the next giveaway!

This week I have a wonderful give away to New Zealand readers, a beautiful book by Sarah King:
The Family-friendly Gluten-free Cookbook  (RRP $39.99), courtesy of New Holland Publishers NZ

The Family-friendly Gluten-free Cookbook is the culmination of one family’s fight to eat well, after being diagnosed with varying degrees of gluten-intolerance. Author Sarah King proves it is possible for a family to follow a gluten-free diet, however challenging the circumstances and on a limited budget.
To win this book just leave a message at the end of this post from today, Monday 10 September,  through to Friday 14 September. I will pick the winner by on Saturday. 

You don't have to be a follower of this blog to enter (but if you follow me of course I will be happy!)

The give away is open to everyone who lives in New Zealand (only NZ!)

Good luck!

A few words about coeliac disease and The Family-friendly Gluten-free Cookbook.

§  Over 24 million people worldwide are affected by coeliac disease. Under-diagnosis is a significant problem, with only 1 in 8 people being diagnosed.
§  Children in particular can suffer serious health consequences from coeliac disease unless they are introduced to a good gluten-free diet. Coeliac disease has a tendency to run in families. If one family member suffers from the condition then there is a 10-15% chance that an immediate family member will also have the condition.
§  Families find it hardest to adopt a gluten-free diet, as children demand food ‘that is the same as everyone else eats’. This book provides recipes with many Kiwi family favourites.

Recipes include:
-          Mediterranean Vegetable Tart
-          Bacon and Corn Muffins
-          Garlic Bread
-          Homestyle Chicken Pie
-          Lemon Meringue Pie
-          White Chocolate and Orange Biscotti
-          Chocolate Brownies
-          Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Filling
-          Self-saucing Chocolate Pudding
-          Baked New York Style Cheesecake

  5. Thanks for the tweet, Alessandra, yum! I would love the chance to win this book :-) I am thankful I don't have coeliac but I know people who do - so this would be a great way to cook something good next time they come to visit.

  6. I'd love to win this book! Always keen to try something different!

  9. It sounds like a wonderful book! I'm sure your lucky winner will be thrilled to receive it. I hope all is well. Blessings...Mary

  10. Hi Alessandra

    First give away in blog-land I have put my hand up for..... well, for my sister-in-law, she is struggling to come to terms with gluten intolerance. I've experimented with various bread formula for her to store in the freezer, to eat a slice when bread craving hits, (it isn't great bread). I'm sure they'd (my brother is the cook/baker at their place) appreciate some fresh New Zealand ideas.

    Cheers, Robyn

    And yes, it's very windy here in the countryside. Gosh, we even had hail last night. The temperature dropped to 3C this morning and we still are having this chilly wind from South. But hell to that, I still went out to the garden and fixed my strawberry patch. Something had dug out half of the plants!
