Gluten Free at Wok & Wine Edinburgh

Gluten Free Chinese Food at Wok & WineLast week I paid a visit to the Wok & Wine restaurant in Edinburgh.

I’ve found that pretty much every Indian curry recipe I’ve come across so far has been naturally gluten free and the taste that you get from creating a curry from scratch is just amazing!

Another good thing is that you don’t need too many specialist ingredients. You can buy all the dried herbs and spices from your local supermarket and they’ll last in your store cupboard for many months or years.

My latest creation is something that I call “Chicken Spinach Jalfrezi”. I’ve made this a ... Read More...
