Wild about Wildcraft: Dream gluten-free bakery in Leeds

Wild about Wildcraft: Dream gluten-free bakery in Leeds

It’s rare for me to feel enthusiastic about pastry. Long gone are my beloved Costa chocolate twists. And those melt-in-the-mouth baklavas from my old local bakery (Ciao Ciao in Durham, a must-try for any gluten-eaters reading this) are dreams now as flakey as the delicate […]

Vegan & gluten-free Cornettos due to hit the UK

Just one Cornettooooooo! It’s gluten-freeeee! Well it is now. And you can (kind of) thank PETA. I’m delighted to confirm the animal rights charity has just announced that Cornetto is bringing its dairy-free, gluten-free ice cream to good old Blighty, due to be released in February […]

Gluten-free Santa Ponsa: Where to eat & stay in Mallorca’s coastal gem

Gluten-free Santa Ponsa: Where to eat & stay in Mallorca’s coastal gem

Blue WKD, concussed Brits and Bob Marley lighters are all things I associate with Mallorca. Yes, I’m talking about Magaluf – the stag-and-hen-stuffed resort never not in the Star or Sun with 50 snaps of sunburnt Brits fighting/peeing/sexing (or, quite often, all three) on “the Strip”. But then I discovered […]

21 fab gluten-free brands you need to know + Allergy Show North review

It was the words, “there’s gluten-free fish and chips over there” that did it for me. Straight from the mouth of a Coeliac UK team member, I felt like I was in a wonderland of gluten-free brands. Well actually, I was. I made the trip […]

Gluten-free Greggs: Are the bakery’s new soups safe for coeliacs?

Gluten-free Greggs: Are the bakery’s new soups safe for coeliacs?

There’s been a lot of excitement surrounding the gluten-free Greggs range. But there’s also been a lot of anti-climaxes. The first being that the chain WASN’T DOING GLUTEN-FREE PASTIES. Lord, what I’d give for a Festive Bake. Anyway, the bakery launched a gluten-free porridge, which […]

Gluten-free in Durham: Coeliac bakery of dreams

Gluten-free in Durham: Coeliac bakery of dreams

As much as I grow giddy with excitement whenever a new restaurant chain bags itself a Coeliac UK accreditation, I bloody love finding a new independent gluten-free bakery or eatery. Today I got very lucky when looking for gluten-free in Durham. The Lily Tree Bakery had […]

Gluten-free beers made using chestnuts are a hit with coeliacs

Naturally gluten-free beer is being launched by more and more breweries. Malts, ales and pilsners are being catered to those with coeliac disease, using alternative grains such as rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, and gluten-free oats. This kind of gluten-free beer is much better for anyone […]

New beer on the block: Carlsberg UK set to launch gluten-free San Miguel

New beer on the block: Carlsberg UK set to launch gluten-free San Miguel

It’s a good time to be a coeliac lager-drinker. Peroni Nastro Azzurro rolled out a gluten-free version of their beer last year – I’ve swilled back a cold bottles in Italy, Pizza Express, and found four-packs in both Tesco and Morrisons. It’s by far the best […]

Gluten-free food on a budget: 11 best supermarkets & the cheapest finds

Gluten-free food on a budget: 11 best supermarkets & the cheapest finds

People who buy gluten free food spend £2,000 a year more than your standard supermarket shopper. TWO GRAND. Personally, I think it’s more than that. Back when I was gluten, dairy, egg, soy, nightshade and everything else free (a nightmare year of following the ‘autoimmune […]

Lunch on the run? Boots Meal Deals go gluten-free

It’s so easy living with coeliac disease; so ridiculously easy eating gluten free… …when everybody else in the world does it too. But guess what? Slowly but surely, gluten free-aks are winning the war. More and more big companies are hopping on the coeliac wagon – […]
