Sunday’s Baked Eggs and Gluten Free Toast

Sunday’s brunches are without doubt up there with the best brunches in London, in fact I have yet to find one that beats it! Not only are they incredible (just look at that photo!) but they can cater very well for gluten free customers.

It’s one of London’s top hidden gems on a quiet residential street in Islington, if it wasn’t for the queues  of excited brunchers that visit every weekend you probably wouldn’t know it was there.  Make sure you arrive early or not too hungry as there is always a wait, but its Continue reading

Gluten Free New York

Capture

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;

Pips Place
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

Review of The Gilbert Scott

IMG_7651

The Gilbert Scott  is the stunning restaurant inside of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel  and I recently got taken here for lunch by my very kind relatives who were visiting London.I can see why they chose here, its beautiful inside the hotel and being led to the restaurant felt abit like walking through Hogwarts, the dining area is equally as grand.

The meal started off well, after explaining about my gluten allergy they promptly brought me my own portion of gluten free bread and butter, which I always think is a nice touch so you don’t feel left out when the rest of the table can dig into Continue reading

Delicious Alchemy

I got sent some lovely samples recently from Delicious Alchemy. It was something abit different: brown bread and cookie bake at home mixes and some breakfast porridge oats. They are all gluten and dairy free too 🙂 I have only tried gluten free packet mixes a couple of times and none of them have turned out that well so I was looking forward to another attempt. The bread mix was really simple to make and I only needed water and oil to add with the bag of dry ingredients. The only thing I didn’t have was a bread mixer or food processor to mix it with but I managed to Continue reading

2 Oxford Place (100% GF Restaurant) Leeds

IMG_7485

 

2 Oxford Place has recently opened its doors in Leeds and is the city’s first 100% gluten free restaurant. In fact I’m sure its one of only a handful in the country that can make this claim, even in London I only know of a couple. I was already planning a visit back home to Leeds this weekend and heard that 2 Oxford Place had just opened so I had to Continue reading

Gluugle Launch

Gluugle has to be one of the best gluten free inventions yet.  A very clever app designed by Caz from the Gluten Free Foodie that shows you a list of all the gluten free restaurants / cafes located around you with the click of a button, where ever you are in the UK. All the reviews are done by allergy sufferers themselves who have visited and had a positive experience, so you won’t be caught out travelling all the way to somewhere to be told ‘oh we don’t do gluten free bread anymore’. Sign up for free and you can be a part of the app by adding

Plan Bread – Healthy Sandwiches

IMG_4079

I recently wrote a post ‘Battle of the Sandwiches’ comparing pre packaged gluten free sandwiches looking at their taste, price and nutritional values. I was inundated with responses from other gluten free consumers who had the same issues and complaints as me. Many found the shops that should be selling GF sandwiches were not actually stocking them on their shelves. Amongst the worst offending was Sainsbury’s who sent a reply to me via twitter to say they would look into the issue but I still never see their GF rolls in their stores. There were others who shared my concerns on the high fat and calorie content of these sandwiches but some who were shocked and had Continue reading
