THE ROCKY ROAD TO HEALTH

{ MAKING A BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR A CHILD WITH 26 ALLERGIES FORCED DANIELLE PROCTOR TO THINK OUTSIDE THE SQUARE. }

Making a birthday cake for a child with 26 allergies forced Danielle Proctor to think outside the square.

The result was a gluten, peanut and egg-free rocky road ‘cake’ which was a hit with her children, as well as their teachers, friends and before long, the whole neighbourhood.

Now everyone can enjoy allergy-free rocky road bars from The Rocky Road House, which has just launched a new online shop and fundraising program.

Danielle always had a love of baking, and still remembers the family-famous jam drops she made as a 12-year-old. But her cooking methods had to change when her daughter Lauren was diagnosed with her first allergies – to dairy and rice – at just six months old.

Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
