The year so far has whizzed by, and last Saturday I was lucky enough to be joining Juvela again to help out on our stand at the Allergy Show North in Liverpool.
Although the Allergy Show is not just dedicated to people with the coeliac condition, there is always an abundance of gluten free companies that attend. It’s great to help out at an event that attracts such a positive response and get the chance to meet people face to face! Not only are we able to offer advice with products, recipe and other general enquiries, we also had great tips passed on to us too…so thank you!
There’s always a wide variety of things to try and buy at shows and gluten free food fairs – from Christmas cakes and mince pies, to samples of pizza and other tasty gluten free goodies. There are also plenty of places to rest your legs and enjoy a cuppa with a snack.
I don’t think I have yet been to a food fair where I haven’t discovered a new kind of product. I simply love the fact that friends and family can be a part of the day with you and it really does help give them an understanding into what it’s like living with the coeliac condition on a daily basis.
My purchase of the day was a fajita kit – I have not had an authentic Fajita since I was diagnosed 11 years ago, so as you can see I’m very excited about it!
For lunch, I had a delicious goat’s cheese, red onion chutney and spinach gluten free pizza from Pizza Express. It was so tasty and I have to say the staff in this particular restaurant could not have been more helpful. They do not normally cut the gluten free pizza to avoid risk of cross contamination, however they will offer you a clean cutter if you do require it portioning. Also on the outside of the ‘takeaway’ box they pop a gluten free sticker on to ensure you get the right pizza! If you ever get the chance to go it’s well worth a visit – as are the other two Liverpool Pizza Express restaurants!
Thanks again to everyone that paid our Stand a visit on both the Saturday and Sunday of the Allergy Show, we had a great time and look forward to seeing you soon…keep an eye on our website to see when we will be attending or hosting an event near your home.
Happy, Healthy Gluten Free eating!
