Lime, coconut and white chocolate cheesecake (Gluten Free)

Inspired by the BBC Good Food magazine recipe but with a few of my own twists, including the fact that I’ve made it #GlutenFree , here is my easy to make, no fuss, no bake cheesecake with a summer vibe

Fancy having a good at this?!


For the base:

120g salted butter

1 packed of gluten free chocolate chip cookies (I used the Tesco Free from)

50g desiccated coconut

For the filling

1 can of condensed milk

1 tub of cream cheese

2 limes, zested and juiced

To decorate

White chocolate stars (these were from ASDA)

Lime and mint


First melt the butter

Crush all the biscuits into a fine crumb

Mix in the melted butter and combine

Press the mixture into a springform tin

Place in the fridge to cool whilst you make the filling.

Mix together the can of condensed milk, cream cheese and 2 limes (zest and juice)

Bring the tin out of the fridge and add the filling.

Place back in the fridge and allow to set.

After 4hrs the mixture should be set. Decorate with pieces of lime, mint leaves and chocolate stars.

Serve and enjoy!

Haggis Pizza (Gluten Free)

Inspired by a recent podcast episode with James Macsween from Macsween Haggis, I had to have a crack at making my own Haggis Pizza.

This super tasty recipe is gluten free using a gluten free haggis from Macsween’s and gluten free bread flour from Shipton Mill

You can make it with normal bread flour and haggis but as somebody with a gluten intolerance, making this pizza base and topping with gluten free yumminess was out of this world.

Ingredients for the base (dough mixture)

185ml warm water

1 tbsp caster sugar

1 sachet of gluten free yeast

200g gluten free bread flour

1 tsp of Xantham gum

1/2 tsp of gluten free baking powder

1tsp of salt

1 tbsp of rapeseed oil

1 tsp of apple cider vinegar

Fine polenta for dusting

For the toppings

1 x Gluten free haggis

1 pepper sliced

1 onion, diced

1 packet of mozzerella

BBQ sauce for the base


Put your warm water and sugar in a jug and stir until dissolved

In a bowl mix your flour, xantham gum, baking powder, and salt together.

Place the yeast at one side of the mixture.

Add the oil, vinegar and mix until combined.

It should make a sticky dough. Avoid the temptation to kneed as it doesnt have gluten in.

Transfer the dough into an oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Place in a warm area to prove for around 1hr.

After the mixture has doubled in size, place on a sheet of baco glide / baking parchment and lightly dust with polenta. Spread the dough out with your hand to make a pizza shape.

Now it’s time to add your toppings.

Spread the base with BBQ sauce

Then add crumbled haggis, mozzerella, onion and peppers.

Sprinkle some oil over the top before it goes into the oven for around 20 minutes until crispy and cheese has melted.

I served my pizza with a side salad grown from my garden.

Enjoy this recipe idea and be sure to send me some pictures of what you make. You can email me:

Befor the pizza went into the oven

The finished result!

Meet the Producer – John Alvis, Lye Cross Farm

Producers of West Country Farmhouse Cheddar 🧀

I was fortunate to visit Lye Cross Farm in North Somerset recently, home of the Alvis Family business who have been making farmhouse cheddar cheese since the 1950’s.

Back then the Alvis’ started off milking around 300 cows on 500 acres, whereas in 2023 they now milk over 1000 cows and manage 4,000 acres of grass and arable land, some as part of an arable contracting business. All milk produced on the farm goes into cheese production and the Alvis family also buy in extra milk from 25 local farms to keep up with production demands.

Each year around 4000 tons of organic farmhouse cheddar is made and the business now exports to over 40 countries; Canada and the USA being the main export customers, with an ever growing demand in the far east; China, Singapore, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia for example.

Locally, Lye Cross Cheese can be purchased from the farm shop on site, which is open 7 days a week Lye Cross Farm Shop with a range of cheeses, locally sourced meats, fresh fruit and vegetables and fresh deli or carvery rolls are available daily.

PDO Status

Cheddar cheese is made all over the world – but Lye Cross Farm’s is the real thing!

In order to qualify for the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) West Country Farmhouse Cheddar must use some of the farms own milk, and all the milk must come from one of 4 counties – Somerset, Devon, Cornwall or Dorset.

In the making of the cheese you have to ‘Cheddar’ the curds by hand. The Cheddar must then mature on the farm in the care of the farmer for a minimum of 9 months. Each month the cheese recipe is constantly changing or adapting partly due to the milk fat content, protein and quality of grass the cows eat.

No expense is spared because quality counts. Every process is controlled and stringent health and safety rules are followed, to ensure a top-class product reaches the consumer.

The family are delighted to have received the Red Tractor Farm Assured Stamp of Approval. This is a recognised mark of quality that guarantees the food consumers buy is being produced to the highest standards possible.

The company employs over 130 people and has a turnover of £26 million annually. The business is constantly investing in ways to improve on energy reduction and new technology advances with an ultimate aim to become carbon neutral.

How the cheese is made

Fresh milk is pasteurised and passed into stainless steel vats with steam jackets. A start culture and non-GMO vegetarian rennet is mixed in to begin the careful transformation into cheese.

The curds and whey are run off onto a cooling table and hand stirred with large shovels to drain the whey. The whey is highly nutritious and packed full of vitamins and minerals, ideal for feeding livestock on the farm.

Next is the ‘cheddaring’. This is when the curds are turned by hand until they begin to bind, which can then be cut into slabs to be stacked. This will help to remove excess whey and helps develop the tasty cheddar flavour.

The blocks are fed into a mill which cuts them into small pieces, then stirred and mixed with salt to act as a preservative.

The salted curd is then pressed into blocks, wrapped and boxed before going to a maturing warehouse. A mild cheddar can be produced within 3 months, however the cheddar must be matured for at least 9 months to be classed as West Country Farmhouse Cheddar. A vintage cheddar will be at least 20 months or more.

Once the cheese is inspected and given a class specification it is labelled and shipped to Lye Cross’ retail customers.

Coronation Chicken Pie (Gluten Free)

Well this sauce is a complete delight from The Garlic Farm

I decided it was about time I made something with it after purchasing on a trip to Doddington Hall earlier in the year.

So what could be more fitting than a Coronation Chicken Pie for King Charles III

Ingredients you will need:

1 jar of Coronation Sauce from The Garlic Farm

3 chicken breast diced (British Chicken)

2 x rolls of Jus-rol ready rolled puff pastry (I used Gluten free)

50 g raisins

1 pack of baby corn chopped

1 onion

1 pack of spinach

3 tbps of freeze dried mango (Super Garden)

1 egg for brushing

Onion seeds, Cumin seeds and flaked almonds for the garnish.


You can either watch this short video… or scroll down for the method on how I made this delicious pie…


Fry off some onions in some rapeseed oil

Add the diced chicken and cook until brown

Then add the chopped sweetcorn, raisins, dried mango and spinach

Spoon in the Coronation sauce.

Line a pie dish with some ready rolled jus-rol pastry. I’ve used gluten free puff.

Spoon in the mixture

Brush the pie with some egg and seal the pastry lid.

Crimp the pastry

Now make it look pretty with some decoration. I’ve opted for a crown and union jack for the coronation.

Brush with egg and sprinkle with onion seeds, cumin seeds and flaked almonds

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown

And enjoy!

Recipe Idea – Rhubarb and Raisin Spiced chutney (Gluten Free)

With an abundance of rhubarb at the moment, I just had to find time to make some rhubarb and raisin chutney.

This variety of rhubarb is called Glaskins Perpetual which I grew from seed 3 years ago. And isn’t it doing well!!

So here is my recipe for spiced rhubarb and raisin chutney which you can make in about 30 minutes. Super quick, tasty and will store for around 6 weeks. A really good way of preserving produce and enjoying with a ploughmans type lunch over the summer months.

The perfect accompaniment for some cooked ham.

You will need:

8 stalks of rhubarb (chopped into 2cm pieces)

100g raisins

300 ml apple cider vinegar

500g caster sugar

2 onions chopped finely

1 tbsp of mixed spice

1 tbsp mild curry powder

100ml warm water


In a large pan, fry off the chopped onions in some rapeseed oil.

Add in the rhubarb, raisins, apple cider vinegar, sugar, curry powder and mixed spice.

Allow the sugar to dissolve and bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Once at a boil, allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. If the mixture becomes slightly dry, add some warm water to the mixture.

The mixture will change to a brown colour resembling chutney and will start to look ‘jammy’.

Allow the mixture to cool and place in some sterilised jars. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 weeks.


Meet the Producer – Ben Cavill of Pengelly Farms Ltd

Cornish Potatoes – yum!

In the latest ‘meet the producer’ blog, I caught up with an old pal from Cornwall Young Farmers, Ben Cavill, who works as technical manager at Pengelly Farms Ltd on behalf of the Rogers Family.

How long have you been farming at Pengelly?

The Rogers family have been farming at Pengelly Barton in West Cornwall since 1967 and is today run by father and son duo, Simon & Philip.

Phil’s son, Harry – the third generation of the Rogers family joined the team in 2020.

What do you grow / farm / produce?

The business is currently farming around 2,800 acres across Cornwall consisting of 1,400 acres of potatoes (approx. 18,000 tonnes a year!) as the primary enterprise with a further 950 acres of Maize, 220 acres of Rye and 180 acres of Sugar Beet grown to feed the farms’ Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant annually.

How did you get involved with the business?

I joined the business in 2016 as the inaugural operator of the newly built AD plant. Following 3.5 years as the plant operator, I moved into my current role as Technical Manager.

As TM, I work closely with the two directors to help monitor and streamline performance, efficiency, and reliability across the business with a particular focus on;

– Biogas & Anaerobic Digestion

– Health & Safety

– Finance & Investment

– Training & Development

– Social Media & PR

– HR & Recruitment

– Logistics

– Data Analysis

– Crop Protection

What’s the thing that surprises you the most about your job?

The thing that often surprises me is the amount of ‘behind the scenes’ work required to get our potatoes from field to fork. As a rural person, its easy to become slightly complacent about the journey that our food makes to get from farm to plate.

As one of the South West’s largest potato growers, we rely on a large and dedicated team of people with different skills and specialisms to ensure that the good old humble spud is planted, grown, harvested, packed and shipped to our customers in the best of conditions, every time.

What does the future look like for you?

Within my role at Pengelly Farms Ltd, I want to continue developing my knowledge and skills in the management of Health & Safety on farm.

With narrow weather windows, increasing costs and greater workloads – it’s often easy to start cutting corners to ‘get the job done’ but I want to focus on ensuring that despite all of this, the job is done safely and that everyone gets home at the end of the day.

Do you enjoy cooking?

One of my favourite things to do when not on the farm is to cook, especially with locally grown, high quality ingredients.

Given the abundance of local meats and vegetables in Cornwall, there is nothing better than preparing a hearty meal with ingredients sourced within a 15-mile radius of home.

A particular favourite of mine would be an adaption of the BBC Good Food’s Herby Potato Pesto Pasta to include Jazzy potatoes and freshly made pesto (a jar of pesto works just as well!). A quick and simple carbohydrate loaded meal, perfect after a day working on the farm.

Here is the recipe:

Jazzy Potato Pesto Pasta’

Serves 2


200g bag ‘Jazzy’ salad potatoes, halved

150g pasta shapes

100g green beans, trimmed and sliced

1 tbsp crème fraîche

For the pesto

large bunch mixed herbs (use whatever you have, such as basil, chives, dill, mint, parsley, or rocket – about 25g in total)

1-2 tbsp olive oil

½ garlic clove, crushed

zest ½ lemon, plus a squeeze of juice

25g parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), grated, plus extra shaved, to serve


Step 1

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 5-6 mins until ¾ cooked. Add the pasta and cook for a further 4-5 minutes. Add the green beans 3 mins before the end.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a mini chopper or small food processor, blitz the pesto ingredients until roughly chopped.

Step 3

When the pasta is cooked, drain and tip back into the pan. Toss through the pesto and crème fraîche and divide into bowls. Serve with shaved Parmesan on top.

Meet the producer – Olivia Shave of Eco Ewe

In the latest instalment of ‘Meet the Producer’ Milly finds out about Norfolk based meat and knitwear business Eco Ewe from owner Olivia Shave

What is your backstory? Have you always been involved in Agriculture?

We started farming as a family back in 2014 following a family bereavement, starting with five orphan lambs and building our flock over time. We then grew over the next few years and opened a farm shop just before the first lockdown initially as an outlet for our meat and ready meals. We soon outgrew our premise, after stocking over 250 other products, all made by other local producers and decided rather than expanding, we would re-diversify into our existing range of knitwear and sheepskins.

What do you produce or grow?

We produce grass fed lamb which has been awarded with the Great Taste Award, reared as holistically as possible with minimal antibiotic use. We farm regeneratively working with nature.

Our aim is to be as sustainable as possible utilising every part of our lambs and celebrating each life by creating lasting products such as our range of knitwear, wool and sheepskins as well as selling our meat locally.

Who do you supply to or how can people buy your products?

We sell direct to consumer via our website and social media channels. Our lamb is available seasonally as whole or half lamb boxes as well as delicious, homemade ready meals as we found a real gap in the market where a lot of customers were telling us they loved to eat lamb but didn’t know how to cook it.

Our knitwear and sheepskin range is available all year round to order via our Website and at present, we ship all over the UK.

What does the future look like for you?

This year we are planning substantial farm growth as we have been fortunate to attain further grazing.

We all have subsidiary businesses alongside our farming life so it’s busy 24/7 especially from April to October.

During the year we pride ourselves on stewarding at local Agriculture Shows, making appearances, and sharing tips at cookery theatres.

My work as Norfolk’s regional community supporter for Love British Food means networking and raising the profile of British Food Fortnight and also Love Lamb Week. With this and writing my own British Lifestyle Column for Farming Monthly, attending events for my new business Cheesecake Norfolk I’m sure in for a hectic year.

Do you enjoy cooking? Is there a favourite go-to meals or recipe you could share?

I love cooking! My favourite recipe is my own Lamb Moussaka Recipe which can be found in For The Love Of The Land II written by Jenny Jefferies:

Here is the recipe that you can follow at home:

Lamb Moussaka by Olivia Shave of Eco Ewe



750g lamb mince

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

3 heaped tsp dried oregano

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 bay leaves

Pinch of salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1⁄2 tbsp light brown soft sugar

2 tbsp tomato purée

200ml red wine

400g tinned chopped tomatoes

6 tbsp rapeseed oil

3 medium aubergines, thinly sliced

550g sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

For the bechamel sauce:

40g unsalted butter

40g plain flour

400ml whole milk

30g parmesan, finely grated 1⁄2 nutmeg, finely grated

1 large free-range egg, beaten


Place the lamb, onion, crushed garlic, oregano, cinnamon and bay leaves into a heavy-based frying pan and cook for 8-10 minutes on a medium heat.Break up the mince using a wooden spoon.

Once the lamb has browned, drain off any excess fat. Continue to cook the mince mixture as you stir in a good pinch of salt and pepper with the sugar, tomato purée, red wine and tinned tomatoes. Bring to a gentle simmer and then leave to cook for a further 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the lamb has tenderised.

Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over a high heat. Drizzle the oil over the sliced aubergine and fry for 4-5 minutes on both sides until golden brown. Set aside on kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil.

Preheat the oven to 200°c/180°c fan/Gas Mark 6 and bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the sweet potato slices to the pan and cook for 6 minutes, then drain in a colander under cold running water before placing on kitchen paper to drain.

For the bechamel sauce:

Melt the butter in a small saucepan, gradually whisk in the flour and cook over a medium heat for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, slowly adding the milk and ensuring you continue to whisk until the sauce is smooth. Return to the heat and gently simmer for 3 minutes while stirring in the parmesan, grated nutmeg, and seasoning to taste. Let the sauce cool to room temperature before whisking in the beaten egg.

Spoon a third of the lamb mixture into a large ovenproof dish and spread out evenly, followed by a third each of the aubergine and potato slices. Repeat twice more to create distinct layers, then finish by pouring the bechamel sauce over the top and smoothing it out so you have an even covering. Sprinkle the moussaka with extra grated parmesan if you like, then place in the preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until you have a nicely golden topping. Serve with a delicious herby green garden salad.

Gluten free gooey chocolate Easter egg cake

Follow this super easy recipe to make the most delicious gluten free gooey Easter Chocolate Cake.

Your guests wouldn’t know this cake was gluten free but if you don’t have to worry about intolerances, normal self raising flour is just fine.

I’ve followed the recipe from the NFU Countryside Magazine March edition and adapted to cater for my gluten intolerance.

So, you will need:

  • 100g chocolate, melted
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 225g gluten free self raising flour
  • 1/2tsp of xantham gum
  • 150g soft brown sugar
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 80g cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 100ml of milk
  • 100ml of creme fraiche
  • 1tsp of vanilla extract
  • 100ml of water
  • A pinch of salt

For the icing

  • 180ml of double cream
  • 180g dark chocolate
  • Mini eggs for decoration

I cooked this recipe on my Everhot at 200c


Melt the butter and chocolate with the water over a pan of simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.

Sift the flour, xantham gum into a large bowl, add the sugars, cocoa powder, salt, and mix.

Put the eggs into a jug and beat well, then add the milk, creme fraiche and vanilla extract.

Combine the dry ingredients with the chocolate mixture, then mix the wet ingredients in. Ensure that everything is well combined.

Scrape the mixture into a lined cake tin and put in the oven for approx 1hr.

For the icing

Put the cream and chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Put over a pan of barely simmering water. Once the chocolate starts to melt, beat the cream into the chocolate and once melted remove from heat.

Leave in a bowl at room temperature but do not allow to set. This may take 3-4hrs. Do not put in a fridge as it will become too stiff to spread later on.

Once the cake has cooked and cooled, spread the icing over the cake and decorate with mini eggs.

So why not give this a go and treat your loved ones on Mother’s Day or over the Easter Weekend!

Meet the Producer – The Grindal Family Manor Farm Shop at Catthorpe

You may have heard of the village of Catthorpe before. It is just off the M6 / M1 / A14 junction on the Leicestershire / Northamptonshire/ Warwickshire border. Before they changed the junction, you’d always hear about traffic on the Catthorpe Interchange, especially on a Friday night!

Anyhow, I recently caught up with the owners of Manor Farm at Catthorpe, The Grindal family, who run a successful farm shop, tea room and campsite.

Here’s a little bit more information on what they produce and how you can find out more.

How long has Manor Farm been a farm shop at Catthorpe and what do you specialise in?

Manor Farm started life as a tiny shop selling fruit cakes and potatoes in the 70’s and the main shop opened in the 90’s. We have extended and grown every year since to what we are today! We specialise in growing, rearing and making our own produce. With particular emphasis on our rare breed meats; Leicester Longwool lamb, British Lop pork and British White beef.

We make all our own meals, pies and cakes using our own produce and the food we serve in the Farmhouse Kitchen utilises our produce too. We grow potatoes, asparagus, soft fruits, vegetables and pumpkins.

Did you diversify from traditional farming to include the farm shop?

Yes we used to just grow potatoes and crops as well as having some livestock. Since the main shop has opened, we no longer grow crops on the farm and only rear the rare breed animals solely for the farm shop.

The farm shop has grown over the last few years. What have been your main successes?

The Farmhouse Kitchen has been the most successful aspect of the business; attracting customers from all over the UK, especially when travelling. Being able to link what we grow on the farm with the kitchen and then offering the chance for customers to buy what they have just eaten in the shop is what we aim for….full circle!

We are very proud of rearing the rare breeds due to their scarcity and plan to continue building the breeds every year. The Beer Barn is another aspect of the shop that has been really successful. The room is full of lots of locally made beers, wines and ciders; we have one of the best selections in the county.

Have there been any bumps in the road?

Like all businesses we have encountered bumps! At present it’s the extortionate electric prices (£7500 per month from £1200), the last few years we have had to cope with the pandemic and in previous years we have over come the outbreak of foot and mouth and everything else that mother natures throws at us!

We are very weather dependent, so we keep a close eye on predictions; the hot summer of 2022 meant that our soft fruit crop was much smaller than usual and the cold weather recently has had an affect on our vegetables. Generally though, we plough on and take what comes!

What can people expect to see or do at Manor Farm Shop?

A REAL farm shop…..we are a working farm retailing our own produce. So think rustic charm, homegrown produce and expect a very warm welcome. We have the main farm shop, Farmhouse Kitchen serving food seven days a week, our campsite is open March-October and we also have two independent shops on site too; The Pink Peony florist and gift shop and Catthorpe Loft who sell home and garden ware and gifts

Meet the Producer – Sarah Evans of Watery Lane Produce

Recently I caught up with Sarah Evans of Watery Lane Produce, a new on-farm business start up producing vegetable boxes selling direct to the customer, based near Wrexham. Here’s some insight on how it all started:

How did Watery Lane come about?

‘We had been thinking for a while of different ideas of things that I could do at home- from crafty things, baking to even a vinery or beer brewing, but none really took my fancy. Then we watched a national organic online course on how to grow and make money in a poly-tunnel, the case study was based in Ireland.

After the series of lockdowns, I had developed some green fingers from gardening and thought veg is similar to flowers and its outside, at home and I was interested, so we decided to just go for it! ‘

What is the businesses ethos and who is your customer?

My business ethos is that I am growing organically or purchasing organic produce from a wholesale who prides itself on providing seasonal sustainable fresh produce. No air miles are used and produce is picked to order to minimise waste across all levels. All the produce is also sourced as locally as possible, reducing carbon footprint. My customers are those who share this ethos. 

How do you fit time into your business whilst raising a family?

My first year in the business was a juggle at times. Much was learnt but on the whole it worked really well. Apart from Tuesday afternoons for a short while, late Wednesday afternoons and early Thursday mornings (these are ordering, receiving and delivering times) the rest is extremely flexible particularly in winter, early spring and late autumn.

The other times I may need to sharpen up my act, but I get in the poly tunnel early during holidays in the summer to ensure that I can be free later in the day to be with the children. Thankfully vegetables don’t need the same looking after as livestock so it works well!

What’s your favourite thing to grow or produce?

I have enjoyed growing the tomatoes, sugar snap peas, cucumbers and runner beans – they all cropped well and I could have a munch whilst harvesting. They all tasted far better than anything purchased in the supermarket. I had forgotten that cucumbers actually had a taste until I grew my own!

I think my enjoyment for growing these has also come from the fact that I won best tomatoes in 2 local shows and best tomato truss, and best cucumber in my local show too! 

What does the future look like for the business?

I would like to increase my orders more but at the same time make my growing more efficient. I learnt a lot last year and this year I simply want to improve on that. If I can refine my practices then things will run more smoothy and I can buy less in and make more profit! 

What do you like to cook? Could you provide a recipe using some of your ingredients?

I used to enjoy baking and though I was pretty good, as my children have grown up I seem to rush it all too much trying to juggle everything so my skills have gone down hill.  But its fab as the children love baking so they just do it instead of me! 

I tend to be the main cook in the house for main meals, however as I am  working my eldest is now cooking at least once a week for us all. We did rather a lot of cooking in lockdown but time has become an issue again.

I don’t have a favourite recipe but I do always prefer to cook fresh – my other half sometimes says- don’t put so much pressure on yourself just do something easy like beans on toast (and I do sometimes) but equally I am wanting to put fresh, home cooked food into my families tummies. It is not always that exciting but I know where it has all come from.

I do love my slow cooker, walking into a kitchen with the smells from what you started in the morning knowing it will be ready when you finally land after all the after school activities is fab. I like hiding veg in dishes like stews, bolognaise, lasagne, moussaka so the children get all the goodness. I also love a roast and roasting all my veg – my girls are happy to eat beetroot, celeriac, Jerusalem artichoke, turnips and kale and sprouts to name just a few veg, and that makes me happy!
