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 Elk and Oarsman on a Tuesday night for steak night. The first time I went I got my steak on gluten free bread however they charged me $3 extra for this so from then on I have just asked for no bread. It’s a bit hit 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 >
Want to know why gluten free bread just doesn’t taste the same as the glutenous kinds? The ladies from Bready give us an insight….
Due to more awareness of Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity, many companies have begun work on making good-tasting, well-textured gluten-free bread. However, this is not an easy task for many reasons.
First, gluten is responsible for maintaining the cell structure in bread. It’s what makes bread light and not dense. It’s also what keeps moisture locked in the bread.
If you take gluten away, you are left with crumbly, dry bread – and who wants that?

Gluten free bread will always be a problem and I have accepted that.
However there are a few companies around that have come up with a pretty good gluten free bread formula. I hadn’t heard much about Springhill Farm‘s bread however since I had a packet in the cupboard which I received at a Coeliac Society event I decided to try it. As you have probably gathered I don’t really like making something straight from the packet without adding something or changing it a little. I had decided I wanted to make this bread with some seeds and found that Lucky Nuts More >
The other day a friend and I met for brunch at the Art Lounge Cafe in Coogee.
My friend very kindly checked first if I would be able to eat anything and I was excited to hear that they had gluten free bread. Having a look at the menu I couldn’t go past the salmon eggs benedict with gluten free bread. My friend also went for the salmon eggs benedict but had hers on turkish bread.
Not long after we ordered out came out breakfast.
The breakfast was presented beautifully and was very yummy. I loved how More >
I have always been told by those in New Zealand that are coeliac and gluten intolerant that they cannot get any good gluten free breads – not having brands such as Country Life. However when back in NZ I noticed that Burgen now have a range of gluten free breads (white, ground linseed, spicy fruit, corn and poppysed and ancient grain & seeds) so I decided to try the ancient grain & seeds loaf. Before buying gluten free bread I always make sure it doesn’t feel solid as a rock and the Burgen loaf passed the test.
