Christmas Dining at Leigh Bistro

Set in the heart of Leigh Broadway, Leigh Bistro is the Modern European restaurant and clearly the place to be as it was packed! I went there last week for a Christmas gathering with the ballet ladies. Here is what I thought of the Christmas menu and the gluten free options!

Courgette and Asparagus Quiche

Eat your greens! They are good for you! I always try and use greens in my cooking as much as I can. Asparagus is packed with vitamins and minerals as well as iron, calcium, protein and fibre. Courgettes are low calorie and contain no saturated fats or cholesterol and have many benefits including improving digestion.

Food Advisr App: My review

 I recently got in touch with a company called FoodAdvisr who have created an app where you can scan products when you are out and about and according to your selected intolerances, will give you a run down of the ingredients so you can see before purchasing. This week I tried out the app. Here are my thoughts!

Mr Lee’s Healthy Pot Noodles

The story of Mr Lee’s pot noodles starts with a man called Damien Lee. A big lover of pot noodles, he embarked on creating his own style of pot noodle. Damien was diagnosed with cancer, and knew that in order to become well again, he would need to make a change in his lifestyle and his diet. He was determined to keep his body and mind healthy. So by revolutionising the pot noodle, he created something that was full of goodness without all of the rubbish ingredients. When Mr Lee got the all clear, Mr Lees Noodles was born.

Angels and Cookies Cookie Dough

This is a review for Angels and Cookies cookie dough. The company, founded by Karen Cappetta is based in the UK and produces ready to go gourmet cookie dough that is not only gluten free, but also egg free, dairy free, nut free, wheat free and vegan so it caters for all! I chose this company as I wanted to see just how all these organic ingredients, also free from hydrogenated oils, additives, preservatives and anything artificial would taste! Currently, there are three flavours available: chocolate chip, chocolate fudge and ginger and spice.

Crunchy Rocky Road

I have never made rocky road before, so decided it was high time that I did! You can make rocky road with lots of ingredients, whatever your preferences are. I used different ingredients for three types of rocky road. Here’s my recipe!

It’s a Pastitsio!

I couldn’t have a gluten free greek blog without sharing my simple and tasty pastitsio recipe. Pastitsio is an Italian word, but the Greeks and Mediterranean’s all have their own variations. This is a dish that my mum has made time and time again for family and friends who may not want to stuff their faces with souvlaki but still want a ‘little’ meat.
