Lots of the recipes and pictures I post on instagram are of special meals or things that I eat that look great and “insta-worthy” but what about the bog standard things I eat? It’s not all London Street food and … Continue reading
I love freshly baked bread, and since going gluten free I’ve never had focaccia. So after a lot of researching, I found this recipe from Great British Chefs. Honestly, its an amazing recipe. Everyone loved this bread (GF and non GF … Continue reading
Yesterday, I ventured to ‘the big Tesco’ not too far from where I live, but beyond the normal Tesco Express I usually stop at. Whilst browsing, I found these beauties…. Now I’m quite a poor student, so I wasn’t going to buy them, until I noticed that they were on special offer for £1! That was like the same price as the New York Bagels (they have 5 in though). But still…a pretty good deal!
Now Udi’s have been around for a while in the UK, since December I think, and I’ve never had chance to try anything from them. Due to being a poor student and a very busy lady! I haven’t seen them in any of my regular stores, so it was nice to be able to jump on this bagel opportunity!
Now they looked good, I love the packaging, it’s fun and simple, but what about the taste?
Well I sliced it in half and popped them under the grill to toast, and I served it with asparagus, eggs and chili jam!
It was phenomenal! The whole thing worked beautifully.
As for the actual bagels, they were really yummy, soft and chewy like the bagels I remember from a bygone era! They looked like golden halos on my plate, I’m so glad I ruined my fast diet day for them…it was so worth it!
I’ve popped the rest in the freezer to reduce the temptation to eat them all!
Now, all of you….run to Tesco and buy them up before they go back up!
Beautiful. I’m going to rate these 10 out of 10! And guess what…they also come in cinnamon and raisin flavour too (but don’t put eggs on them I can’t imagine that’s nice). And Udi’s, if you’re reading, I’d really like you to make some cheese and onion flavoured bagels please. Thank you 🙂

Slice, wrap and roll. Sounds like a gluten free song! I was lucky enough to be sent some samples of the range of products available from BFree. They market their products as being ‘Gluten and Wheat Free’, but with the … Continue reading
My lovely housemate Priya, had her parents come visit from London and very kindly took us both out for dinner. I had heard how good The Boot Room was, so after wandering around the city, we decided to go there. I had seen on their website that they had Gluten Free options available but they didn’t specify what they were. Their menu changes regularly and seasonally so the exact options are not listed but I can guarantee that there will be something for you. They reassured me everything was made fresh, so they knew exactly what was in everything.
They treated us to a three course meal, which was so delcious…I ordered the pan fried pigeon with carrot puree and caramelised shallots (sounds fancy…I know! it was!), since only recently migrating from veggie to meaty I haven’t had the opportunity to try lots of different meats but pigeon is delcious! The main course was, beef with dauphinoise potatoes and green beans, which I ordered rare, it was really good, full of flavour and really tasty. Then finally for desert..not that I had much room left but I managed to squeeze in a gorgeous creme brûlée, without the shortbread biscuit (someone needs to look into the science of why there is always room for desert).
The waiter who served us, was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. They even gave me some Gluten Free bread while we waited for our starters (granted it was a bit chewy as I believe it had been deforested in the microwave, but I’m not complaining…I was happy to be thought of).
I’d highly recommend you eat here, whether you are gluten free or not…its lovely. You can book online through their website and make sure you follow them on twitter. I can’t wait to go again…might have to get someone to take me out…its a bit on the pricey side for a poor student like me!
