This Christmas, gluten intolerance will be the last thing on your mind, thanks to these brilliant free-from swaps and recipe adaptations from Charlotte Willis

Christmas has quite the polarised effect on the general population. It’s the Marmite of all holidays, with camps divided into those who put their trees up in early November and begin buying presents for loved ones with the turn of the season, and those who like to bury their heads firmly in sandy denial until December 24th hits, before panic buying the last gluten-free Panettone on the shelf in Tesco. Whichever division of Christmas love or hate you fall into, there’s one aspect of the holiday season that never fails to unite us – our love of traditional Christmas foods.


I’m definitely not the only one who fantasises about Christmas food in mid-July (don’t lie, I know you’ve been thinking about mice pies while tanning yourself silly). Festive feasting is one of the most wonderful excuses to unite friends and family around a dinner table, sharing in those gluttonous foods which are reserved almost exclusively for Christmas. An experience which is made even better, and more inclusive, thanks to the wonderful modern-day availability of free-from products.

It seems that a free-from Christmas is becoming increasingly popular, as each and every year we see supermarkets fall over one another to bring out the latest and greatest must-have-free-from product of the holidays. 2018 went to Waitrose’s Vegan Christmas Cake, and 2017 saw the Bailey’s Almande liqueur skyrocket to the top of everyone’s naughty list. Brilliant news for retailers, but even greater news for the millions of us in the UK on a gluten-free diet. We’ve also witnessed a huge surge in the number of gluten-free bloggers and recipe creators, celebrity chefs and mainstream cooking channels adapting their traditional and classic Christmas recipes into glorious gluten-free creations.
