Today I was out with my son doing a 10k walk raising funds for Cavendish Cancer Care at Chatsworth House, Bakewell in the Uk.

Well after the event we went for food and I ended up with a jacket potato as per usual and then my son pointed out that there was gluten free cake :) I was naturally overjoyed; one that it made me feel special that we were catered for and two, because Ive not had any in months...anyway, there was 4 choices (chocolate, victoria, carrot and coffee cake). mmmm I ordered the carrot cake and really looked forward to it, but with every mouthful I was nervous of cross contamination so ended up not enjoying it at all and leaving most of it :(

ahhhh well, one day.......

Yes, it's hard to trust publicly available gluten-free food, especially if you don't know the brand or can't question the chef.

Sometimes I feel like by eating at a new place I'm performing an act equivalent to skydiving.

Not sure where you are exactly in the UK, but I see the website "Find Me Gluten Free" covers London (and perhaps more?)

Take a look!.

 

I have had excellent luck with places recommended by people who post reviews on that site (and now, I review on there myself)

 

I was terrified to eat out at first, but when I had to travel extensively last month,  I took the plunge and now, I am  very comfortable with places recommended by others on that site. Not a single hit.

 

Hope you find something! Good luck.  :)
