Better late than never, welcome to my summary of the products and brands that caught my eye last year.
Unfortunately my blogging has once again had to take a back seat due to various commitments and the small matter of a wedding, but I’m very grateful to all of my readers that have stayed with me!
In the first year of my awards the blog had passed 9,000 views and last year it had reached 28,000, but I’m delighted that it’s now passed 46,000 views, even with limited blogging, so thank you very much! 🙂
Sorry for the blog / social media silence for the past few months / year but I’ve been fully engrossed in changing jobs and getting married, but as Rich and I are now Mr and Mrs I thought it was time to get back to the blogging, and what better way to start than with a review of our wedding cake! 🙂
From the start of the wedding planning process, we both agreed that all food at the wedding would be gluten free to avoid the risk of any potential cross contamination issues and to make sure that I wasn’t ill on our big day.
There are quite a few places in Bristol that make gluten free cakes and I got some quotes from these places, as well as asking around for suggestions at work. We also went to a wedding fayre at our wedding venue, and although the sample cakes there were amazing, there was little reassurance from anywhere I’d contacted that they could safely cope with making a gluten free cake.
Cue my lovely friends Gem and Beth at The Wheat Free Kitchen…
Another brand I was very excited to see at the recent Love Food Festival in Bristol was The Wheat Free Kitchen. I had no idea they were going to be there until I looked on the website the evening before and saw the list of stallholders. It would be fair to say that I got a little over excited! Not only was there going to be gluten free goodness, but a whole stall of it!
I hadn’t heard of The Wheat Free Kitchen before the festival, and if you haven’t either here’s some information about them taken from their website:
The Wheat Free Kitchen – tasty gluten and wheat free baking is what we do. We know there’s a lack of good quality, good tasting free from products out there. Apart from gluten free, you will also find in The Wheat Free Kitchen, dairy free and vegan based products.
The way we shop has changed, we all need products that are in balance with the way we live our lives – the food we eat should complement our lifestyle – and that’s what we’re here to help with, just because you can’t eat gluten shouldn’t mean that you have to miss out.
