If you are anywhere near Peterborough next weekend (21 October 2006) then do go to the Coeliac Food Fair being held at the Deafblind HQ in Cygnet Road, Hampton. It is between 10:30 and 3, and entry costs £1.
These food fairs are well worth a visit. Lots of different manufacturers of gluten free foods go, and it is an opportunity to taste new products and to sample the range of gluten free bread, pizza, cakes etc. The manufacturers are all hoping that you will switch to their products, of course, so are very keen to get you to taste things … even if you’ve been diagnosed a while, and have your own favourite brands, it is worth going just to see what’s new.
Apparently, at this one, the Mazzarini Company from Italy will be ‘staging an interactive cookery workshop’ where visitors will get the chance to make their own pizza. No, I haven’t heard of them either, but Italian pizza must be worth a try, surely?
It’s too far for us, but if you go, do let us know how it went.
Edit: Note that for 2010, the date is 16 October.
I’ve written a book summarising what we’ve learnt over 20 years of dealing with the gluten free diet, and it might be just what you’re looking for. It packs the lessons we’ve learned into what I hope is a helpful and straightforward guidebook. It’s available on Amazon, as a paperback or for your Kindle…
