To my taste buds, it is more like the vacuum-packed monstrosities of the gluten free aisle than the really ground breaking brands of gluten free bread (enter Genius) out there. However, for the very accessible price of 1.99 … Continue reading Aldi stocks gluten free bread

This time, it was Credo’s pizza, at number 19 Montague Street (off Harcourt Street) in Dublin 2 that won out. Unlike some of the other restaurants offering gluten free goodies in Ireland, Credo boasts: its own dedicated gluten-free kitchen separate storage for gluten free … Continue reading GF Take Away Pizza in Dublin!
