Bright is a beautiful country town in Victoria Australia. I have been there a couple of times and have been impressed with the selection of gluten free foods.
Here are the places which I found to be gluten free friendly.
River Deck Cafe is a cute little cafe which, as suggested by the name, has a deck which looks over the river. They have a range of breakfast and lunch options and usually stock gluten free bread. The reason I say usually is that the second time I went there I arrived towards the end of lunch and they had no gluten free bread left. On my More >
I have to admit I didn’t do a huge amount of cooking whilst I was in the US. For the first two months, while working at a summer camp, all of my meals were cooked for me. Then I started traveling and since I wasn’t staying in one place for more than four nights there wasn’t much point stocking up on supermarket items.
While in the US I came across two chains of supermarkets which are awesome for those that have dietary requirements including vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free. Those supermarkets are Trader Joe’s and Wholefoods.
Both supermarkets label items that More >
My aunt and uncle have a fig tree at their house and last time I stayed I was lucky enough to be there during fig season. There was an excess supply of figs so we decided to pick some and have them for dessert one night. We didn’t want to do anything too fiddly and so we decided to caramelise them.
It’s very easy to caramelise figs, all you need to do is sprinkle them with caster or brown sugar (I think we used brown in the end) and place them in the oven until the sugar has caramalised.
We were very More >
I was recently asked what gourmet chocolates (that you can buy in the supermarket) are gluten free and I have to say I didn’t really know. Which got me thinking, there are probably a lot of people out there who want to know the same thing, especially when wanting to give their gluten free friends a little prezzie.
After standing in the chocolates isle of Coles and reading the back of every box of chocolates (aren’t I nice doing this for you ) I have put together a list of the safe (aka gluten free) options:
- Lindt Lindor white

Waiheke Island is a cute island 14km by ferry from Auckland, NZ. The reason I call it cute is it has a number of amazing wineries, boutique shops and views to die for. For many years as a child I remember cycling from the ferry terminal to Stonyridge Vineyard to have lunch for my aunties birthday. This time for my visit I didn’t bring along a bike however I did do a fair bit of walking around the island!
After I had eaten my home make sandwich for lunch I was craving something sweet and refreshing and was therefore very happy 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 >
