It’s pancake day, it’s lockdown and it’s half term, so I’ve got the day off work. What better to do than feed the kids pancakes until they burst? At breakfast time, we indulged in what’s normally a weekend treat of banana pancakes (recipe here). These are great because they’re super easy to make with only … Continue reading
Hi, I’m finally back!! We found an amazing pizza from M&S food, which we have been ordering from Ocado. It had a really good pizza texture [ one of the BEST I’ve had!]. It also tasted phenomenally good for a gluten free base!! We have our suspicions that it may be the same recipe as … Continue reading
Hi I’m SteelyMcSteel. I’m eleven years old, I’m in year six and I’m Steeliac’s eldest child. It’s taken two or three years of tests and an on and off gluten-free diet to get diagnosed so I have a pretty good idea of what it’s like. First of all I have three main points to make. … Continue reading
We’ve been missing eating out during lockdown, and I feel like I’ve been cooking so much. I try to mix it up a bit so we have a lot of variety and I’ve subjected the family to all sorts of new recipes. Some have worked brilliantly, and some consigned to the ‘never again, mum!’ bin. … Continue reading
First post in a while! It’s been a funny few weeks, adjusting to life in the lockdown. In general, things are ok chez Steeliac – we’re working from home and attempting to home-school our boys, as well as trying to keep things as normal as we can. I hope anybody reading this is coping ok … Continue reading
Pho Cafe has arrived!
Last week I was a very happy coeliac, having been invited to a pre-opening ‘friends and family’ night at the new Pho in Leopold Square. I love Vietnamese food and make a point of going to Pho whenever I can in Manchester. This place is equally great for a quick lunch with a big bowl … Continue reading
Pub lunch at the Fox House
I was pleasantly surprised by a recent lunch at the Fox House pub on the road out to Hathersage. They don’t have gluten free items marked on the menu, which is a shame as they do mark other allergens (e.g. alcohol, unusually). However they do have decent gluten free ciabattas and a separate fryer, which … Continue reading
Pho Cafe coming to Sheffield!
Yes, yes, yes! I am so excited – I’ve been waiting for this to happen for years! If you don’t know, Pho is a Vietnamese cafe where so much of the menu is gluten free, they asterisk the foods that aren’t. So much choice – noodle soup, summer rolls, curry, fried noodles. Bring it on! … Continue reading
I’ve generally accepted that when I go out for a meal, the gluten free choices can be fairly limited in comparison to the regular menu. So I was delighted to find the gluten free offering at El Toro in Broomhill was over 90% of the menu. El Toro is a Spanish tapas restaurant, where you … Continue reading
South Street Kitchen
I love colourful food! Look at this lovely looking lunch in South Street Kitchen at Park Hill. I’ve been in the area a couple of times recently and discovered this delightful independent cafe serving Middle Eastern inspired vegetarian food. Since Nourish and Eten in the town centre closed, Sheffield has really been really short on … Continue reading
