Practice makes perfect

Whilst you shouldn't find anything listed in these recipes that you aren't already familiar with, it may well be wise to have a practice run, if you have time.

No, I don't mean the whole day!

However, if you haven't done much gluten free baking before you might like to test the recipes first to see if you need to make any final tweaks to suit your own families tastes.

If you make any really successful adaptations to these gluten free Christmas recipes please do share them with us here on The Gluten Free Chef.

Even if this is your first Christmas since being diagnosed with a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease, don't panic, have faith and confidence in yourself, add a little Christmas spirit, read the recipes through and make sure you have all the ingredients to hand, then follow the instructions to the letter.

Once you have delivered your perfect Christmas Dinner, and your friends and family are replete you can share your Christmas story with us. Your experiences for this Christmas could help and support someone in your position next year, by which time you will be an old hand at this!
