Having people truly understand what it is to live with severe food allergies can be difficult. Having a good support network around you is key. Oliver’s grandparents have been an amazing support in our journey with severe food allergies… through all the ups… and all the many downs… and having their support has meant the world to us and has made things just that bit easier. So we have been working together over the last few years on finding a Christmas Pudding recipe that we could all enjoy together including Oliver. Oliver’s Nonna has tried and created a few different one’s over the years that were good and that we loved sharing together but it was when she had a pudding at a friend’s house a few years ago and asked her friend how she made the pudding that she knew that we were going to be able to work with this recipe and tweak it and change it to create the right mix to make a dairy-free, egg-free, wheat-free, nut-free tasty Christmas pudding! And here it is for you all to enjoy and share with your loved ones this Christmas also… HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
