Ten Most Annoying Things About Eating Out Gluten Free

Caz Roberts | Posted 15.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle

I thought the sauce looked suspiciously glutenous so I asked him to check again with the chef. He returned and asked, "How allergic ARE you?" I looked at him and declared, a little poker faced white lie, "I will start vomiting profusely in the middle of your restaurant" at which point he admitted, "Yes, it's got flour in it". Sometimes you have to push to get the answers you need.

Last month I had the pleasure of visiting a restaurant I've wanted to try for quite a while - White Rabbit in London's Dalston. Situated off the high street down a quiet street with a plain grey front and small sign, you could easily miss White Rabbit.

Hotel Tresanton really is a delight and we had a wonderful meal there which brings back great memories just writing this. I would definitely love to visit the picturesque village of St Mawes again and if I do, a visit to Hotel Tresanton will definitely be on the cards.

This market is currently dominated by chains that have made themselves into household names, Nando's and Wagamama for example, but this is not stopping independent restaurants getting on board and being successful.

This Week I Ate... Colbert, Andrew Edmonds and Dangerous Canapes

I think the eternal optimist in me might be gently moving towards a half empty glass position. This is distressing as it seems to confirm that one has well and truly crossed over and landed well onto the wrong side of 40, with no way back...

Love London

London has so much to offer, you can party at night, browse markets in the day and everything in between. It wasn't until February last year when my boyfriend fulfilled a childhood dream of mine by taking me to New York that I realised how utterly in love I was with this city.

I ordered a Fitzrovia Bun at Milk & Honey on Warren Street. This is something you should try to do at least once in your life. I do it about twice a year. Any more would seem greedy. It is like no other bun you will ever feast your eyes on.

One Point of View

Given that we've been in one of the longest recessionary periods in recent history, it made me wonder: if each business or authority had chosen to present "one point of view", might we have come out of the recession sooner?

This Week I Ate... Artichoke and Blanchette

William Sitwell | Posted 08.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
William Sitwell

The Artichoke is as sweet and charming as its modest staff. Go there, very occasionally, for a posh bite and if you drink the Knott list and don't knock yourself unconscious, you should leave happy... I also left Blanchette pretty happy - a long and narrow French place in Soho. I think it was French, I mean it was good, lots of little sharing dishes with soft pulses, nice unctuous meat, crispy long chips etc etc, but to be honest if I'd been blindfolded it could have been an Opera Tavern, or a Salt Yard or a Polpo.

During a weekend break in Cornwall with my sister in September, I visited Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant for lunch, which is somewhere I have dined a few times in the past. On previous visits, it had either been wonderful or mediocre but I was looking forward to trying the seasonal menu out after not visiting for a couple of years.
