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)
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 …
I've complied a list of pubs and restaurants that serve gluten free beer in the UK. About this Guide
This is a work in progress. Are there other places out there? (I believe the La Tasca chain sells Estrella beer, Pizza Express sell Greens and Pitcher and Piano have been known to sell GF occasionally, but I'm sticking to independents here.) Leave a comment or tweet me if your local sells gluten free beer too!
