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 new housemate loves to bake. So what better to do on a cold rainy Friday night in London than some baking!
I don’t think I had actually ever eaten banoffee pie, even before I was diagnosed coeliac, so I was very excited.

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 many years.
However the other day my friend and I needed to catch a quick bite to eat in London before heading to a musical so we decided to visit Wagamama.
When greeted by the host I asked him if there was a gluten free menu and More >
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 that I would love it and that no matter what I had to try the nachos. Now as mentioned in my last post I am not a big fan of Canadian nachos due to the lack of toppings, however the ones at Nourish have 27 ingredients More >
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, I fell in love. The problem is that in the (many) times that I have been back since my first visit, all but once I have stuck to what I ordered the first time, the steak Fajitas.
But let’s take a step back for a moment. More >
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 >
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 turn to Well.ca.
It was on Well.ca that I first discovered these Quinoa Burger Patties from GoGo – since then I noticed that they also stock them in one of the local supermarkets which is great.
The burgers are really easy to make, all you need to do More >
