• Happy Easter – a short blog!

    27th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    I hope that you are all having a wonderful day, whether you’re at home with your family or enjoying time away. I had a lovely lunch out at my favourite restaurant in Norfolk, Relish, found at Newton Flotman. As everything is made fresh, being gluten and dairy-free is not a problem at all, and we all had a fantastic meal. One thing that I love is that I rarely receive a dessert menu as, invariably, chef has something special planned. Today, it was caramelised gluten-free lemon sponge with pistachios, berries and champagne granita. Delicious! Driving home, we saw a beautiful…

  • Samantha’s Home Bistro – rhubarb and ginger chutney

    26th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    Ah, hello Saturday – so good to see a relaxing one again. My New Year’s resolution is one that, thus far, I am managing to keep, and that is to have Saturdays off. My day to day job is owning/running an Arabian horse magazine and the deadlines always come around quickly! Invariably, working seven days a week, into the evenings as well as the early hours of the morning, is the norm. So I decided, this year, to have Saturdays off. I actually love working on Sundays – it’s so peaceful and I always seem to get more done. But…

  • Gluten-free & the Earsham Street Deli

    25th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    I am home! The sun is shining, I have four days off, a rare treat, and while working on Your Gluten Freedom, The Delicate Diner and creative projects, I also have some time to just enjoy being back home. Indeed, I have already been out and done my shopping for the weekend ahead – and when I am home, it’s never a supermarket but always the local shops. I would much rather put my money their way than to some big conglomerate that doesn’t care about the individual as much as the profit in their pockets. So, with that in mind, whenever…

  • Deconstruction in Dubai

    20th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    I have almost come to the end of my business part of my Middle Eastern trip – I am just waiting to head to an Arabian horse farm, where I will be doing the commentary. I love seeing breeding programmes and how they develop down the generations, and this will be my first visit to Al Zobair Stud – I am curious! Somehow, this trip has seen me stay on GMT rather than adapt to local time. It wasn’t planned but it has worked out that way – which has also meant that I’ve been eating less as I’m still…

  • Jim’s Kitchen Table – a gluten-free delight in Abu Dhabi

    15th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    Abu Dhabi was good to me tonight! My friend, Marion, suggested that we go out for dinner, so I had a little look on Doctor Google to see if I could find any hidden treasures that would go down with a Delicate Diner like me. Marion is also trying to eat gluten-free, so I knew that whatever I found would work for her, too. Time Out Abu Dhabi turned up three restaurants worth a look, and one in particular grabbed my attention. This was Jim’s Kitchen Table, located in Masdar City – close to Marion’s home and my hotel –…

  • Plain food…

    14th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    I have just arrived in the Middle East and decided, en route, to do a blog entry. For, my dear Delicate Diners, plane food – or plain food – is something that we have to approach with trepidation… My first happy result was that my ordered gluten-free meal was there. In spite of flying with British Airways for many years, they do sometimes like to forget my dietary requirements and leave my gluten-free meal behind. While I am on the subject, I do find it odd, or should that be wryly amusing, that passengers are only allowed to select one…

  • Wow, what a welcome!

    12th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    This blog/site is as much about you as it is about me. If we have any kind of intolerance, then we are all Delicate Diners, at the end of the day…

  • Welcome to The Delicate Diner!

    12th March 2016The Delicate Diner

    Being a Delicate Diner in the modern world can be a challenging one – and then is the reaction from others – to stop being difficult, fussy or even to ‘grow up and eat what’s in front of you’. If only it were that simple!
