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 […]

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

This is a really quick blog with some delicious pictures of food that I’ve eaten recently at Tres Corazones tapas restaurant in Wendover. I went with a group of friends for a Christmas dinner and then treated myself to lunch this week because it’s so quick, tasty and safe for people with allergies. They cook […]

Listen very carefully, I shall say this many times…

This week a waiter in Canada has been charged after an allergic diner was served fish instead of steak; the customer was seriously allergic to fish and has alerted the waiter about this but sadly he had an anaphylactic attack and spent two days in a coma. Why did this happen? How could this happen? […]

Eating at Gourmet Burger Kitchen with multiple allergies…

We recently put Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) through a pretty stringent test of their allergen catering protocol. 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 […]

Proof that going gluten and dairy free is easy!

Everyone is talking about Number One Aldwych near Covent Garden this week and you may have seen them featured on ITV news too. Apparently they went gluten and dairy free ages ago and no one noticed! Nobody! Brilliant! I get so fed up with people thinking that my wheat and dairy free (not to mention […]
