Founder, owner and a recipe developer Daphne Goh creates scrumptious gluten-free Asian recipes and shares them on her food and lifestyle blog

Born in Malaysia, Daphne studied in Singapore and Australia to find herself back in Kuala Lumpur for her first job, where she met her husband. Soon after they migrated back to Sydney and now call it their home.

Passionate about food she enjoyed eating her favourite Dim Sums and doughnuts however always ended up feeling bloated and uncomfortable. Discomfort and the ordeal post eating was overwhelming. The suffering went on from 2009 to 2013 when after a long wait she was finally diagnosed to be gluten and lactose intolerant.

Her inclination to relish food led her to search for palatable Asian recipes; unable to find any she decided to create her own delectable gluten-free recipes. Consequently creating her blog to share her recipes with others who had similar dietary needs. Featuring a variety of cuisines such as Chinese, Thai, Malaysian Japanese and Singaporean she’s working towards many more!

Here’s one of her many recipes. For the rest visit

Asian Mushrooms and Vegetables Stir-Fry Noodles

I have always adored eating mushrooms especially exotic mushrooms, for the love of their meaty textures and lovely tastes, but also for the health benefits of mushrooms and at such affordable prices. Amongst all the exotic mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms are my favourite mushrooms to use in my home cooking. They are also a fantastic meat substitute for vegans and vegetarians. Mushrooms are not only versatile but also help decrease the amount of animal based proteins added to our cooking. This recipe is also vegan, dairy free, nut free, soy free, egg free and allergy friendly.
