Ever since I found the amazing gluten free cupcakes on offer at Sprinkles in New York, I have been searching London for a British equivalent and I think I have found them at Crumbs and Doilies in Soho! This cute little bakery has been open for around a year but I have only just discovered it. My friend sent me an article about the bakery owner and I loved reading the background story about how she Continue reading
My first few weeks in New York have been amazing but a total whirlwind and I hoped I could blog more often to share all the great gluten free finds I have made. You can keep up to date on my daily food diary via twitter though just follow me on @glutenfree4tea . The first thing that’s great about eating out gluten free in New York is the amount of places that offer it, I have found or stumbled across so many restaurants, cafés and shops all over the city that offer gluten free menus or gluten free dishes. It’s also so convenient here, I ended up getting alot dinners to takeaway which is perfect if you are working in the city or need something quick for lunch or dinner. Here are my list of finds so far;
Murray Hill and Upper East Side
Il start with one of the best, a 100% gluten free bakery! I was very lucky that one of their cafés is right by where I am currently staying so I have already been a few times. They have the most delicious fresh baked cakes, cookies, brownies and cupcakes. Plus they do a special grilled cheese sandwich on their home baked bread. Definitely Continue reading
I have been working in Mayfair just round the corner from Selfridges for the past 2 years and I have seen the gourmet gluten free products on sale increase massively. I ventured into Selfridges FoodHall on my lunch break today on the hunt for Foodamentalists new savoury pies that were launched there yesterday. Selfridges has created a new savoury ‘Wheat and Gluten Free Deli’ with these pies on display along some very delicious looking fresh pasta! The fresh gourmet pasta included plain and flavoured tagliatelle and tortellini filled with goat cheese or spinach & ricotta. It was a tough choice for which pie to get but in the end I went for the Quiche Lorraine because I haven’t had one for a while, I will obviously be going back to sample them all anyway! Although it is quite small for the price tag- £2.79, it was very good when heated in the microwave for 30 seconds and served with salad for a light lunch.
