Gluten – All you need to know, with Dr Tom O’Bryan – A Quirky Journey Podcast #88

Dr. Tom O’Bryan is an internationally recognised speaker and workshop leader specialising in the complications of Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity and Coeliac Disease as they occur inside and outside of the intestines.  During this interview, Dr O'Bryan goes into great detail as to why gluten is so problematic: from our inability to digest it, to the inflammation it causes in our system, to the pesticides used in growing gluten-containing grains. If you're considering quitting gluten, or at least trying to get off gluten for a while, we highly recommend you listen to this eye-opening episode of A Quirky Journey.

Slow-Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Red Wine Sauce

By Fouad Kassab - We used to serve a more complicated version of this recipe at my restaurant, Baraka. The incredibly popular dish was made by cooking the lamb in a master stock braise with burnt garlic and onions. At home, I use the recipe below, cooking the lamb in a slow cooker. It involves very little preparation time and results in a brilliantly tender and delicious meal with very little effort.
