If you regularly read my blog then you are probably aware that I love macarons (not to be confused with macaroons – see here). The great thing about macarons is that they are naturally gluten free as the main ingredients are pure icing sugar (as oposed to icing mixture which sometimes contains gluten), egg whites, sugar and almond meal.
A couple of Christmas’ ago a couple of friends and I decided to have a baking day and make macarons to give to friends and family for Christmas. I had been told that macarons were very difficult to make but we all decided we were up to the challenge. Unfortunately the macarons More >
Before I left Australia to go to the USA and then come to Canada (where I will be living until September) I had lots of brunch, lunch and dinner dates to say ‘au revoir’ to my friends. You see when you tell people you are going overseas in a month for a couple of years they tend to want to catch up at least once before you leave!
These farewells were a great time for me to test out all the places I had been meaning to eat at but never got around to.
One of these places was The Organic Pomegranate in More >
Chocol’Art was a regular dessert place that my friend and I went to after visiting Ten Japanese restaurant.
Everytime I went there I would have a chai latte (which is delicious), and then if I felt like being a bit naughty I would also get a dessert. They have a couple of gluten free options including a chocolate muffin, ice cream and cupcakes. I have to say I was a little disappointed by the chocolate muffin – it was a bit dry and didn’t have a huge amount of flavour. The ice cream was good though and I never got a chance to taste More >
I thought I had written a post on Moo Gourmet Burgers as I have eaten there a couple of times, though it turns out I haven’t. However now seems like a good time to write a post as Moo Gourmet Burgers has just announced that starting November 7 all their beef burger patties will be gluten free.
This is exciting news for me as whilst I enjoyed the Moo burgers that I had, I was disappointed with the small selection available for us glutards. This change means that starting November 7, 17 of the 20 options can be gluten free when More >
I was traveling to NZ earlier in the year and because I had chosen Air New Zealand’s seat + bag option I wasn’t going to get any food on the plane. I therefore searched the airport for morning tea (to have at the airport) and lunch (to take on the plane). I noticed that Black Tonic Espresso Bar had a selection of gluten free muffins and therefore decided on the raspberry one for morning tea. I was pleasantly surprised, it was moist and actually tasted pretty good!
I felt in safe hands when seeing this sign…
I often end up in Glebe for dinner as it’s near my place, there is such a range of restaurants (including some amazing Mexican places) and the atmosphere is great. Often after dinner I go looking for somewhere to have coffee and dessert (since I cannot have anything at San Churro’s). One night my friend suggested Badde Manors Cafe, a cute little cafe which offers a number of gluten free, vegetarian, vegan and nut free options. While I haven’t eaten a meal there (they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner) the menu looks amazing with options including a grilled haloumi salad, More >
