Unknown to the organiser (whose birthday weekend it was) one of her guests is now on a gluten free diet. As luck would have it all the things they had chosen last night (Sunday) were gluten free anyway - the chocolate nemesis uses ground almonds rather than flour. For tonight (Monday) as garlic bread was on their menu I made a gluten free version as well and used the recipe from the bag of Dove Farm gluten free flour halving it.
I left it to rise for an hour while I got everything else together, then egg washed the top and baked for 45 minutes at 220 oC. As soon as it was out of the oven I was off driving into the setting sun on the way to Kempley Barns near Ross on Wye for the second evening.
