What happened to the BFree pittas?

I discovered these amazing gluten, wheat, dairy and egg free BFree Pittas as the Allergy Show London this year. They were offering half a pitta with various fillings and I found it was one of the only reliable lunch source so I went back in various disguises for a salad and humous pitta for my […]

Wheat or gluten free beer at the CAMRA beer festival?
