Growing up in the Philippines, food has always been a big part of my life.

But I first learned to cook because my husband is coeliac and I wanted him to experience the food I enjoy eating, especially my favourite Filipino dishes.

One winter night I decided to bake him a gluten free apple pie. When I surprised him with it, he actually cried as he never thought he would be able to enjoy apple pie again.
That was my inspiration!

After opening our first café, I studied to become a qualified pastry chef.
Since then, we’ve gradually added more Filipino influences to our food and desserts, and I love seeing our customers really enjoy something completely new that I prepared gluten free. We now have two cafes, Dovetail on Overend, and Dovetail Social.

And we never charge extra for Gluten Free, Ever!
