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.

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.
