CELIA Beer and Clive’s Pies
We wrote about the amazing combination that is CELIA Beer and Clive’s Pies a while back. Luckily their stands were near each other at the show, so we swung by to say hello. We really hope CELIA get stocked in one of the major supermarkets soon: it’s the best organic craft beer around. We said hi to Sally at Clive’s Pies and tried their new flavour: Mushroom and Leek and, of course we had to buy our favourite flavour, Aloo Gobi.
Hotch Potch Eggs
Now for something completely different. Hotch Potch Eggs are scotch eggs with a twist. Made with gluten free pork mixed with a delicious range of locally sourced fresh ingredients including olives, sweet peppers, apricots these were so popular at the show there were none left by the time we got there but everyone else was raving about them. Selfridges have put an order in.
This is the 2nd part of a four part series on the 2014 Allergy and Free From Show in London. You can read Part 1 for 3 more great GF brands.
We spoke to the Fran O’Donaghue of Rebelicious Foods from Ireland. They do these lovely gluten free cereals in gorgeous packaging including cornflakes that really taste like corn (not cardboard). They’re cerealy tasty. (That’s their gag not mine!) The range also has puffed rice, buckwheat, museli, granola and porridge.
Priced at between £1.50 and £2.45, Rebelicious is available in Irish stores like Eurospar and Centra but the products are coming to the UK soon.
At the beginning of July I checked out the Allergy and Free From Show at London Olympia and I have to say I think it was one of the best shows ever. So much so, we can’t fit it all in one post. Look out for other posts later in the week.
As usual, we caught up with old friends and some of the brands we’ve featured here on The Gluten Free Blog. But we also got to try some less familiar brands and products. Read the rest of this article »
