Coeliac Uk (www.coeliac.org.uk ) had a competition late last year to find the GF chef of the year. The winner was Peter McKenzie of South Lanarkshire Council. But in 2nd place was the chef of the St Paul’s Cathedral restaurant. I didn’t even know that St Paul’s had a restaurant!
The website says this –
“15 December 2009
Head Chef of St Paul's, Candice Webber was named runner up in the national Gluten Free Chef of the Year Competition - the competition, to design a three course gluten-free menu, was launched in the latter part of 2009 to raise awareness and highlight the need for greater provision of gluten free menu options for the one in 100 people in the UK that suffer with coeliac disease.
Dishes from Candice's mouthwatering menu plus other gluten-free delights will appear on both the Restaurant at St Paul's menu, as well as the Cafe's counters over the coming months.”http://www.restaurantatstpauls.co.uk/news/
Awesome. I’ll just pop that on the already massive list of restaurants I want to go to then!
After the popularity of my UK Gluten Free Beer Guide, I now bring you the Sunday Roast Guide!
All pubs/restaurants listed here have been verified as serving a gluten free roast with gluten free gravy.
The list is accurate as of April 2014, confirmed either via the venue's website or via personal recommendation through Twitter etc.
As before, please feel free to recommend your local. Leave a comment below or tweet me! (@likeazebora)
It's been a while since I last wrote. January and February are lost in a mist of long working hours and flu. But the sun is shining and I feel renewed. My writing is rusty again so this post will be very photo heavy.
In January, me and my husband took part in #Veganuary. We liked how it made us feel. I immersed myself in veganism, followed vegans on Instagram and Twitter and absorbed every email from the Veganuary team. I felt the scales fall from my eyes.
I love animals. We have helped to rescue and re-home quite a few during our time as fosterers. What were we doing eating them and supporting the meat, egg and dairy industries? Animals are not 'happy', there is no happy ending or blissful life for animals that are forced to breed, grow unnaturally large too quickly and exist for as little time as possible for as little money as possible. Watching the film Cowspiracy changed my life. It's on Netflix if you want to check it out.
Until recently, I didn't call myself a feminist, but that was only because I didn't understand it. Feminism has had a bad reputation for years. For example, we only seem to use the adjective 'strident' to precede feminist. Feminists are still associated with lesbianism, protest marching, hairy armpits and men hating.
Fortunately, social media sites like Twitter mean that you can customise your online experience so that we are only in touch with like minded individuals. Many of the people I follow on Twitter are creative and enjoy crafting and baking, eat clean/veggie/vegan, are tattooed, are against animal cruelty, are politically aware and engaged, tweet about issues they feel strongly about and have healthy relationships with people of all genders. A lot of the women I follow also happen to be feminists. It is thanks to Twitter that I found out that I am a feminist. And if you are reading this, and you are a female, I almost guarantee that you are too.
This new wave …
