When your friends invite you to dinner and cater for your allergies

I would like thank ALL my friends. Not only are you my eyes and ears when we go out and my little saviours when I’m getting a bit blase, some of you really go the extra mile. Some of you are total keepers. So this blog is for Fran who has fed me so many […]

Fantastic #freefrom cafe in Stafford – The Mad Hatter’s Tea Emporium

This place is amazing. If you’re travelling to Stafford and have allergies or are a coeliac you MUST visit for lunch. It’s a lovely, homely, friendly, family-run cafe who were proudly displaying their certificate for their Shortlisting in the FreeFrom Eating out Awards. These guys were winners in my book and I was winning all […]

Dairy free, nut free, wheat free tapas, twice in one week!

And I’m not just talking about the increased cost of freefrom food, although some of it is very expensive compared to its normal alternatives. There are numerous reasons for this, including increased manufacturing costs, special training for […]

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.
