Helping coeliac patients go gluten-free

British Baker carried an interesting response from Coeliac UK this week to a Daily Mail article accusing the NHS of spending millions on “gluten-free junk food” on prescription to sufferers of coeliac disease.

Coeliac UK explained the NHS prescriptions mainly pay for key staples such as bread and flour.

I support Coeliac UK’s position. While more gluten free food is available now than 10 years ago, it still carries a heavy price premium because fewer items are made and alternative ingredients are costly.

It may also be worthwhile doctors’ practices/ NHS Trusts considering offering gluten-free cookery classes using a qualified home economist to help them learn the skills they need. Some people have no or poor scratch cooking skills even for basic non-gluten free cooking. If they did, then making simple things like a tomato sauce for use in a wide range of dishes would offer people the confidence to change ingredients to adapt recipes to suit a gluten-free diet.

local Coeliac group will have plenty of ideas on how to adapt their diet using many readily available foods.

Let Me Introduce You to Francis Gimblett, Author of Gimblett’s Guide to the Best of British Cheeses, and co Owner of Taste of the Vine, an interactive food and drink event company.

Francis and I met in Spring 2021 when I joined one of his monthly Friday evening meet the cheesemaker tasting sessions. I learned so much and loved meeting the cheesemakers. I told other people and very quickly was joined on screen by 10-12 friends each month ….

My copy of Francis book , Gimblett’s Guide to the Best of British Cheeses has become very well thumbed and through it i have tracked down cheesemakers around the UK and even found a cheesemaking course in Tottenham, London inspired by him.

He is a great story teller so i know you will enjoy hearing about :

  • his journey in food and drink
  • people who have inspired or encouraged him
  • his French mother’s cooking and how that added to his food journey
  • how he has for many years, resisted repitition and always desired change, t learn or to reinvent things BUT
  • how possibly now after almost 2 years of constant change, he my just be happy for a little more predictability for a while
  • we talk about work life balance and partnering in business with his wife
  • about the importance of understanding your P&L and planning for your business right from Day 1
  • we also get a hint or two about his next taste adventure….

I cannot wait
