Eagle’s Eye Restaurant, Kicking Horse, BC, Canada
The first time I went to Kicking Horse we walked into Eagle’s Eye Restaurant and pretty much walked straight back out. You see working in the ski industry in Banff doesn’t pay too well and Eagle’s Eye looked like an expensive fine dining restaurant. We ended up eating at Whitetooth Grill at the bottom of the gondola where the chef prepared me a gluten free chicken salad.
The second time we went to Kicking Horse it was a special occasion, our last team outing before our manager left, so we decided we would splurge and eat in Eagle’s Eye restaurant. Eagle’s Eye has a great feel to it and it also has a pretty amazing view (which would have been even better if it wasn’t such a white out). You almost feel with a fish out of water when you sit down in your ski gear with the well dressed waiters and nicely set tables.
I was doubtful that they would have gluten free bread but one of the girls said I should ask anyway. The options that I thought I may be able to have on the menu (including the soup, and the meat patty from the burger) actually turned out to be glutenous but I was happy to hear that they had gluten free bread and could make me a gluten free version of the chicken club. The chicken club included chicken, bacon, brie, guacamole, red onion and tomoato and it was delicious. The wedges were also very nice. The best thing about it was it only cost $14 and there was no extra charge for the gluten free bread.
I was lucky enough to get the last two pieces of gluten free bread that day so a suggestion would be to ring up and warn them you are coming so you can make sure they have some on hand. This restaurant is a great lunch spot during a day skiing at Kicking Horse.

I’m back… and I am going to start making up for my absense with this amazing recipe for gluten free banoffee pie. Since moving to London I haven’t done much baking except when I went through a phase of making gluten free banana bread (recipe to come). However more recently I moved house and my

I used to eat at Wagamama all the time and loved it. But after being diagnosed with coeliac disease I visited Wagamama in Sydney and found out that I could only eat one item on the menu and it was far from the best dish I had had there. So I didn’t go back for

Just when you thought there could not be anymore restaurants in Banff with gluten free options. I have one more for now… and it’s a good one. It took me 10 months of living in Banff and finally in my last month of living there I got around to visiting Nourish. I had been told

I absolutely love Mexican food. The great thing about Mexican is that they often use corn tortilla’s and if not they usually at least have them as an option. So it is not surprising that after the first visit to Baja Cantina in Glebe, where they give you the option of corn or flour tortilla’s,

As I have mentioned before there are a number of places with gluten free options in Banff, and The Elk and Oarsman Pub & Grill is no exception to this. I was very excited to find that The Elk & Oarsman actually have a separate two page (!!) gluten free menu. I usually go to the

There is a really awesome website in Canada, Well.ca, which has a great selection of gluten free foods and delivery is free! Whilst there is a pretty good selection of gluten free foods available at the two supermarkets in Banff there are some things I just cannot get my hands on. For these products I

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it. The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time

One night I had planned to make the chickpea curry I saw on Scandi Foodie’s blog however I left the recipe at work (and I didn’t have internet at home at the time) so I had to put my thinking cap on to try and remember the ingredients for this recipe. Then I realised that

This was another daily deal site purchase – a voucher for a meal at Sugar Lounge at Manly Beach. A couple of friends and I headed down one sunny Sydney day to indulge in some fancy food and drink (well fancier than most of my dining out choices). First things first – cocktails! I went for

I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really
