Gluten Free Restaurants in Barcelona

I was lucky enough to spend around 2 months working in Barcelona last year and I now visit there regularly as my company has an office there.

I really love Barcelona – the weather, the food, the architecture and the variety makes it an amazing place to visit. If you are a coeliac or on a gluten free diet for other reasons you don’t need to worry about spending a weekend or a few days here – there are a number of fantastic restaurants with tasty gluten free food and it is really well understood by waiting staff and chefs.

Gluten Free Pub Food in Cornwall – Charlestown, near St Austell

This summer we decided to take a week’s self catering holiday in Cornwall, for some relaxation, sea air, a bit of sightseeing and hopefully some sunshine. We’ve booked a week in a lovely apartment with a balcony overlooking the sea, just a mile or so away from the little harbour town of Looe. Here’s a photo of the view from our balcony:

Since I’ve been on a gluten free diet, a self catering holiday has been my preference. Thankfully Stuart & I both enjoy cooking and the self catering gives us the flexibility of cooking ... Read More...

Celebrity Eclipse Gluten Free ReviewI’ve just returned from a fantastic holiday – a 7 day cruise (gluten free) on Celebrity Eclipse around the Caribbean and then 3 days in South Beach Miami. I thought I’d write a quick review here on what it is like to go on a Celebrity cruise while on a gluten free diet.
