10 Gluten Free Pastry Recipes

Fouad Kassab who developed the recipe for this delicious gluten free pastry says the following about his innovative recipe:


"I could call this recipe "Life Changing Dough" and few would argue - I'm certain its the most delicious and versatile gluten free pastry in history. I made it my mission to develop an incredible grain free bread when opening my first restaurant, Chic Pea. I spent countless hours experimenting and in the end, in a fortuitous act of desperation I threw boiled potato into the mix and discovered it provided much-needed body, something often lacking with gluten free bread. At Chic Pea we served it straight out of the oven and many declared it the best bread they had ever had, without ever realising it was 100% gluten and grain free!"


And we'd have to agree! That's why we are so delighted to be the first to make and sell this magical pastry dough in the UK. And to encourage you further, here are 10 Gluten Free Pastry Recipes for you to make at home using our Fouad Kassab: Life Changing Dough
