Dell’Ugo Gluten Free Chickpea Fusilli: the UK’s first branded chilled GF pasta

We wrote about Dell’Ugo gluten free penne last year. And now we’ve got to try their deliciously nutty gluten free chickpea fusilli too, which was an innovation award winner at the 2013 FreeFrom Food Awards.

Like the penne, the fusilli cooks exactly like regular pasta and the fat spirals keep their shape perfectly. Absolutely delicious served with a homemade tomato sauce, and a quick and healthy supper that can be rustled up in minutes.

Heaven in a Box: Gluten Free Brownies from Borough 22 Bakehouse

My love of a chocolate brownies is well known. So when we received an email from the lovely Ryan at Borough 22 Bakehouse, telling us he reckoned he had the best gluten free brownies in London, well, we just had to try them out!

Borough 22 Bakehouse specialises in making baked goods without allergens. So all their products can be dairy, egg, gluten, wheat and soya free, and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Ryan’s business came about in a bid to make a treat for his multi-allergen wife (sorry ladies) and dairy intolerant kids that didn’t involve every pot pan and mixing bowl in the house. And his treats were all so amazing the business took off. And some. Now Ryan can be found hand delivering gorgeous boxes of gluten free goodies all over London.

Nestlé Gluten Free Cornflakes: The toasty taste of cornflakes – just gluten free

I’ve always been slightly annoyed that cornflakes have been off the menu for those on a gluten free diet. After all, you’d think it would just be toasty flakes of corn and not much else. Not so. Once that barley malt sweetener has been added, most cornflakes are no longer an option.

Well luckily for us, the nice people at Nestlé have ripped up the rulebook and introduced their very own range of gluten free cornflakes. Two flavours are available: one with honey and one original. And both are light, toasty, tasty flakes packed full of the usual vitamins and minerals. As my gluten-loving colleague said in the office after he scoffed a bowl of honey cornflakes “you’d never know these were gluten free. They taste like cornflakes should taste.” And they do. I had a bowl with cold milk and blueberries. But I’m also going to use these gluten free cornflakes to make those little chocolate nests at Easter.
