I’m forever trying new gluten free products – some I like, some I don’t. And although like many things, food is all down to personal taste, I thought it would be good to share with you the things that I have tried this month and without any hesitation would buy again!
Pavlova, would probably be my first pudding choice off a menu (gluten free sticky toffee pudding or a fabulous ice cream would also be huge contenders!!). And the great thing about Pavlova, is by nature it’s naturally gluten free – hoorah!! Of course, when eating out you do need to double check, to ensure no pesky gluten ingredients have been added!
Last week me and Neil took ourselves off for a few nights stay to the very wonderful Carnoustie Golf Hotel and Spa. Our original trip was due to be to Arran, but Neil spotted this hotel in Carnoustie and we got side tracked. We will make it to Arran one day, but for now I was more than happy to head up to the North East coast and settle down and make Carnoustie our home for a few nights!
When it comes to keeping gluten free food safe, and still gluten free, preventing cross contamination throughout the whole storage, preparation, cooking and serving process is key. And to help spread a consistent message how important (and achievable) this really is for anybody that requires a gluten free diet, the advice should, be simple and clear, so it can then be easily applied to every food prep situation – helping people understand what a true gluten free diet really entails. So, whether we are putting food together in our own kitchen, having it prepared for us in our friends and family’s homes or being served gluten free food from a restaurant kitchen etc, everyone knows how to safely cater for anybody who needs to eat gluten free.
