In Topic: Help? With Coffee?

Do you also drink flavoured coffee in Starbucks? Like white mocha or nut latte or mocha frappuccino?

I live in Turkey and the Starbucks here has no idea about gluten so I try to explain it all the time but still do not trust their cleaned equipments used for frappuccinos.

In Topic: Gluten Free Foods?

I am a huge fan of "well&good muffin mix", if you add raisins to the mix it is perfect!
I love that toblerone flavors are all gluten-free and snickers is also a favourite.
I also eat macarons, as far as I know they are naturally gluten-free.
Chestnut, especially candied chestnut is also gluten-free and soooo good :)

I am a huge fan of snacks as you can tell ;)

In Topic: Support For My Paris Travel

Hi Firuze......I have never been to France but as as fan of French cooking and food, I cannot imagine the French would pollute their cheese with a gluten component, unless they make beer cheese or something like that. Straight cheese should be gluten-free in any country.
I think most cheese, unless a processed spread, would be fine. Ditto for cream cheese but always check the label or ask.

I drink red wine but do not usually drink French wines. South American and American wines abound here so I drink those. As the French are master wine makers, I would think they would be safe. That doesn't sound too sure, does it? You can never say never but those things, generally speaking, are always gluten-free.

The only thing I do know is that in some European countries, they use grains in some of their coffees. These can include barley.
They caution you to avoid brewed coffee, usually the kind served at a buffet in a hotel for breakfast. I always drink cappuccino's and latte's when traveling, from a coffee house or restaurant and never had a problem. Usually espresso roast does not contain barley or grain products. This from my friend who came from the Czech Republic.

There is a bakery in Paris which is gluten free and the name is Helmut Newcake. Do a Google search on it and if you find yourself in
the area, it is your duty to go and eat some gluten-free French pastries and report back to us on the experience! :D ;) I hope you have a marvelous time!

Hi, i have just been back from my Paris trip, and it was marvelous!! It would last pages if i start talking about it all but here is the part about eating:); the Helmut Newcake bakery is a wonderland! I tried many thigs and took away cereals and soup mixtures. I could not taste their lunch or dinner service as they are closed on mondays&tuesdays an they serve only brunch on Sunday. I loved their walnut cake and lemon pie!
There are a few more alternatives for lunch and dinner in the city like Noglu restaurant, Fee Narure and La Timbre. I did not try them due to their schedule so i strongly advice u to check their timetables in advance. I was able to eat omlettes, french fries and drink coffee almost everywhere..
What i adored the most was their bio/natural shops with all the variety of gluten-free products. La Vie Claire was my favourite and the supermarket "Monop" also had too many stuff.
I enjoyed their perfect coffee and madelaines a lot:)
I also visited Eurodisney and they had special dishes packed for allergens and was very tasty.
