About us...

The reason that I have decided to add this page is because people that look at this website will see photos of all the delicious food we eat here. I cook a mixture of Spanish and English and the recipes on this page will hopefully reflect this. As I am allergic to cows milk everything dairy is made from goats or sheeps milk. I am also allergic to shop bought eggs but funnily enough I can eat the eggs our hens produce. (Must be the food we give them). Anyway all the recipes on here can be changed to accommodate most other allergies too, just change the ingredients to suit yourself. I hope that those of you who like cooking will try a few recipes and let us know how you got on by contacting us on
