Oonagh Williams

British Born, Independent, Award Winning, Chef/Instructor Oonagh Williams has a Culinary Arts degree and trained in London and Switzerland. Based in New Hampshire, her 28-year-old son was diagnosed gluten and lactose intolerant 6 years ago with no previous symptoms. Chef Oonagh has always cooked from scratch with real ingredients, so it was only baked goods that she generally needed to adapt to gluten free. Chef Oonagh follows a gluten free diet (Chef Oonagh discovered her arthritis pains and period pains went away with a gluten free diet and has since discovered family members with celiac disease), and only buys regular flour bread and cereal for her husband.
Chef Oonagh gives presentations and classes on gluten free cooking and living, consults and guides people in adapting to a gluten free lifestyle, caters gluten free parties, has written a monthly recipe column for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness for over three years, and writes for various publications. Chef Oonagh has published her ‘Delicious Gluten Free Cooking’ cookbook. Recipes range from kid friendly pancakes, waffles and Tollhouse Cookies to adult indulgent Chicken Buffalo soup, Corned Beef in Beer, English Trifle and Tiramisu.

Chef Oonagh feels strongly that anything gluten free has to taste as good as any gluten filled recipe and frequently says that ‘my six foot four baby would soon tell me if it wasn’t any good, my husband is far politer’!
As a chef with a deep understanding of food and the ability to fully understand food labels, Chef Oonagh has helped numerous people with their food intolerances.

Chef Oonagh:
• Was the featured Chef at the Healthy Villi, Boston Celiac Conference in October 2013 and will present at the April 2014 Boston Celiac Conference.
• Is invited to speak at Corporate Health and Wellness Events and State Fairs
