No I am not bored Saz. It is precisely how I feel when I find something I can eat, that I have so totally been missing out on. I still need to find licorice allsorts.

I have done the health food shops, with being a small city there are only a couple of health food shops, but we do have a wonderful alternative type shop which has just about everything you can imagine it, and what makes it better is that the owner is gluten free, so she knows where we are coming from.

I made a really decadent caramel slice yesterday, and it worked out, and even the non gluten free eaters could not find fault with it.
The Coq and Pullet Deli's Gluten free Caramel Slice, Timaru
Base
75g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1tsp vanilla essence
1 cup gluten-free flour
1tsp gluten-free baking powder

Caramel
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsps golden syrup
150g butter
3/4 can sweetened condensed milk

Topping
1 and 1/2 cups chopped gluten free chocolate

Preheat oven to 180 C
Soften the butter slightly
Add the sugar and cream well
Add the egg and vanilla and cream some more
Add the dry ingredients
Pour into a greased and lined sponge roll pan, making sure that the lining comes well above the rim, so that you can lift it out with ease.
Bake until the base springs back when touched, about 15 minutes.
Combine the caramel ingredients in a saucepan and gently simmer, until melted.
Spread over the cooked base and place back in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until browned.
Once cooled, melt the chocolate in the microwave for a minute at a time, until smooth. Pour over the cooked base and spread with a knife.
Makes 16 slices.

Did anyone else enjoy the Gluten Free Gourmet Food Expo today out in Homebush (NSW)?
:)


I had a great time at the Expo on Saturday. It was great trying so many different types of food. I was a bit dissapointed that it focused mainly on baked products, rather than having a few more varieties of sauces, etc.

Anyhows, I just found this site. I'm from Sydney and work in the City.

Does anyone know any places in Sydney CBD that serve any gluten-free products for lunch and dinner? A lot of places seem to serve coffee and gluten-free cakes....but cakes shouldn't be eaten every day!

Through my own two searching and the NSW Coeliac link i've found these places...haven't tried them all out yet....not sure if they all are still open!!

I've got a million questions since I was only diagnosed with Celiac about 3mths ago....

so if anyone can answer or help me out with the following questions or any further advice, please email me at mackmackmackie@gmail.com

Which coffee shops have gluten free products? Starbucks is fine, but Gloria jeans doesn't seem to be so open about giving out info. *I'm mainly concerned about hot chocolates here* :P

Does anyone have product lists from manufacturers about gluten free products?

I'm sure there'll be more, see if I can answer other ppls questions later!!

Hey

In my experience Gloria Jeans are not gluten-free food friendly. The ones in where I live don't seem to offer any cake/ biscuit of any kind! I can't help you with whats in their drinks though.

I don't know if there is one near your work but I can get gluten-free free open grill type sandwiches from Jamacia Blue, they also seem to have at least one sweet treat but they are very expensive.


Moving right along.... I have found the best gluten-free Muesli! It is Macadamia Muesli and the company is Brookfarm. It seriously yummy! slightly expensive though ( but what isn't if its gluten-free free)

There is a website www.brookfarm.com. au (i've not been here)

Hi -

There's a place in The Rocks called DARE (Delicious and Responsible Eating). Just look for the huge sign that says "Gluten-Free Food!" :) They have a good selection of gluten-free meals. I also really like Iku Wholefood. Their menu indicates which items are safe for us. It's expensive but really good. The other place in the CBD I like is Pure Juice and Soup Bar in Hunter Connection near Wynyard. The owner is very friendly about disclosing ingredients. They actually only have one soup that contains gluten and it says so in bold letters on the menu.

I went to the gluten-free expo Saturday but there was really nothing there I could eat due to my other allergies. The only item I found that was gluten, dairy and soy free was full of preservatives. Oh well. I did taste some beer. That was exciting. :)

Oh and I wanted to add....

I LOVE Roberto's muffins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! :)

I've found them at Salad Works, some little deli in Potts Point on Macleay St. and U Eat Healthy in Surry Hills. The chocolate ones are soooo good :) :) :)

“Kansai sushi gelato espresso” Shop A 70 Pitt Street Sydney serves gluten & dairy free gelato. They serve the www.puregelato.com.au brand. Both Hub and I enjoyed it.

I can second my support for Iku http://www.iku.com.au/ I buy all my gluten free lunches there. Have a look on the link they show where all their branches are.

In Australia Square they sell gluten free Nougat by Nougat Limar www.nougat.net.au at the dquare coffee shop. The coffee shop that shares the back entrance of Australia square with the new pub that has opened up at Australia square. Think the pubs name is O'Ryan. There where the CBA ATM usually stands. The entrance enters from the dead-end little road right next to 280 George Street. Hunter street runs parallel with it.

http://www.chipman.com.au are my favourite corn chips ever - and they happen to be gluten free and organic :)

I have a blog with alot of gluten free food entries in my area. PM me if you want the link :) I'm not sure whether I can post it here.

You possibly would be interested in the October addition of Delicious Magazine http://www.deliciousmagazine.com.au/ The front page shows of a gluten free dessert and they have ear marked a number of other gluten free dishes in the magazine. They have started doing this regularly.

Another really handy Free gluten-free magazine Everyday Health is published by Orgran
The magazine features wonderful gluten free recipes in all you need to do is write to Everyday Health Magazine, 47 –53 Aster Ave Carrum, Downs Vic 3201 and just provide them with you name and postal address. A number of prominent Australian gluten free writers Ruby Brown, Carole Hofflin, Yvonne Voorthuizen gluten-free recipes are published in the magazine.

Be great to see your blog. I’m also a member of coeliacaustralia@yahoogroups.com found them very helpful.

I regularly read the recipe side of glutenfreeforum Scott has a great website going here.

Have you tried Zaffraan http://www.zaaffran.com.au/ in Sydney. They a fabulous Indian restaurant. If you ring them before hand and just remind them on the night that you need a gluten-free meal they bend over backwards.

They made 3-course meal dairy, gluten and yeast free and we all had a very tasty meal without getting sick.

The Coeliac Society of NSW http://www.nswcoeliac.org.au/ has a list of all gluten-free restaurant in NSW. Click on places to eat. You can also request from the other state society members http://www.coeliac.o...e-locations.htm a list of restaurants in their state if they not printed on their website. :P
