After being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and living gluten free for a year, I decided that I wanted to share my experiences, so I started this blog.
I hope that you enjoy my restaurant reviews, gluten free product reviews, and gluten free recipes. But, you don’t need to be on a gluten free diet to enjoy my reviews and recipes, so have a look and feel free to comment!
Working in hospitality definitely has its perks and a stay at the Swissotel in Amsterdam on staff rates was one that I took up recently.
When I made the reservation I made a note that I was gluten free, just in case they wanted to leave me a small arrival treat
When we checked into the hotel the receptionist received an alert to mention to me that they have gluten free bread in the Dam PLaza restaurant for breakfast. It got even better as when I entered the restaurant in the morning and mentioned my room number they told me they More >
It’s nice to see gluten free cakes, cupcakes and doughnuts popping up everywhere these days. Not that I eat them often, but it’s nice to have the choice of having a sweet treat along with your tea or coffee.
I have stumbled across Ruby’s of London a couple of times now, at the market in Greenwich and also Southbank. All of Ruby’s cakes are vegan with the additional option of being gluten and/or sugar free (sweetened with agave).
I have tried a couple of Ruby’s products but I would have to say my favourite so far is the Carrot Orange Coconut Loaf More >
If you haven’t eaten at Bread Street Kitchen yet, Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant at One New Change near St Paul’s, I highly recommend you do!
After asking for gluten free options I was presented with a gluten free menu which contained most of the items from the regular menu. I was also presented with gluten free bread to nibble on whilst we were deciding what to eat.
Whilst so many dishes sounded amazing I couldn’t go past the gluten free short rib beef burger with Monterey Jack cheese and spicy sirracha mayo.
The burger was amazing, so tasty and the gluten free burger bun More >
I was lucky enough to receive a delivery of Barilla gluten free pasta and sauces recently to trial, however since I am still in London I hadn’t got the chance to trial them yet.
This worked out rather well since I got a Facebook message from my Mum one evening, she needed some pasta sauce for dinner and asked if she could use some of my Barilla Basilico pasta sauce instead of heading to the shop. I of course agreed, with the stipulation that she provide me some feedback so that I could write this blog post.
Because she only used a More >
I have posted about Leon before, about how I not only love their food but how they cater for so many dietary needs including gluten free.
Last week I was lucky enough to try their new menu item, Gluten-Free Chicken along with a couple of other goodies.
When trialling gluten free products I always like to get a second opinion from a non coeliac so my housemate and I ventured off to the Leon at Spitafields (where the new product is currently on trial).
Both my housemate and I loved the Gluten-Free Chicken. The More >
If you’re looking for a gluten free meal in Eindhoven I highly suggest you check out Señora Rosa. It is a Spanish restaurant and tapas bar and not only are the staff highly knowledgeable of what is gluten free, the food is amazing.
We were all so hungry when we arrived that I completely forgot to take photos of the food, however I do have one of the dessert. Whilst not the prettiest looking dessert the chocolate mousse definitely hit the spot and was washed down rather nicely with a Spanish Coffee Licor 43.
