Avocado and poached egg on gluten free crumpets #crumpetchallenge

Firstly, thank you to Warburtons Newburn Bakehouse, who sent me this amazing little hamper of delicious goodies and invited me to take part in the great gluten free crumpet challenge!

Calling all coeliacs in Barnet, Herts!

Two thirds of Brits can’t correctly identify what gluten is…

Half don’t know gluten is contained in cornflakes, pasta, pizza, fruitcake and biscuits. Nearly one in ten people have started cutting wheat or gluten from their diet, yet confusion is rife as to what gluten actually is and where it can be found. In fact, new research has shown that 70 percent of those surveyed […]

THE best wheat and dairy free breakfast at Number Twenty Six

This wasn’t just any old breakfast. This was no greasy spoon. Number Twenty Six in Teignmouth, Devon, is a lovely little cafe bistro that my Dad and I discovered many years ago while out walking.

Back in October Mr What Allergy and I ventured out to our local fish and chipper in Aylesbury, The Cod Father. Love the name and love, love, love the wheat, dairy and soya free fish and chips. Due to having both a wheat and dairy allergy it’s not usually possible to get fish and chips […]

Eating at Gourmet Burger Kitchen with multiple allergies…

I wouldn’t normally ever turn up somewhere without having first phoned, exchanged emails and been through the menu to ascertain before hand what would be safe. But things happen in our busy lives and we are not always […]
