If you’ve ever gone to the cinema in a mall or attend a pre–teen birthday party, chances are you would have come across a Frankie and Benny’s.

Authentically Italian via Noo Yoik, Frankie and Benny’s has a super sized menu that’s the size of a book. I’m not kidding. It’s literally a book, packed full of all kinds of pizzas, pastas, burgers, steaks, grills, sandwiches and wraps, waffles and brownies. In other words, a no-go area for a coeliac. Until now!

A box of 6 from Miss Macaroon

Now we love a gluten free product that not only tastes good but does good. So we were really interested to hear about Miss Macaroon, a company started by Rosie Ginday who wanted to combine her passion for beautiful handcrafted food with a desire to help disadvantaged young adults in her local area, Birmingham.

These beautifully coloured macaroons make perfect gifts and wedding favours, and sales from the macaroons are used to fund catering classes and courses for marginalised young people from deprived areas of the city. Read the rest of this article »
