Gluten free food

1% of the population have a gluten intolerance and only 24% have been diagnosed. Coeliac,Crohns and IBS sufferers will all know how hard it is to get gluten free.

The BFM has found three local sources. The Gluten Free Patisserie

Autumn Fair @ Botanic Gardens

The BFM and girls went to the Autumn Fair at The Botanic Gardens.

College Park
Botanic Avenue
Belfast
BT7 1LP
United Kingdom
http://www.belfastcity.gov.uk/leisure/parks-openspaces/Park-6614.aspx

This was a two day affair,we went on the Sunday.There was a fruit/veg show, flowers both inside the marquee and in the gardens as well as the glass house. For the kids there were rides, larger than life giants, an assault course, face painting,archery, a few “green” stands, as well as other stalls inside the marquee and food stalls outside.

The Botanic Gardens is home to the Palm House and the Tropical Ravine.

The Palm House shows how advances in glasshouse technology allowed horticulturists to grow exotic plant species during the Victorian period.

The building was designed by Sir Charles Lanyon, who also helped design parts of nearby Queen’s University. The foundation stone was laid in 1839 and the two wings were completed in 1840 by leading ironmaster, Richard Turner. The dome was added in 1852.

So I thoroughly recommend a stroll through the gardens of a nice afternoon.

Root Soup @ 4th BCN

The BFM and girls went to Belfast Culture Night in Belfast on Friday 19th September.It was truly a magnificent way of getting people of all ages into the streets of Belfast City Centre especially the Cathedral Quarter, involved in all forms of culture,arts and leisure!

There where the usual burger vans,Crepes,hog roast and hot dogs. But the one place that really caught my eye was the Root Soup stand. Root Soup http://www.rootsoup.co.uk is a venture by L’ARCHE. They stand for the possibility of a world where,everyone, irrespective of colour, class, creed, or capacity, has a place to belong and reveal their gifts.They offer housing on the Ormeau Road which has become home to 9 people with learning difficulties and they are the core members. Volunteers help run this.

Anyways I went to the stand and they were selling soup either chilli or parsnip and carrot,along with tortilla chips and muffins in a recyclable card box. I tasted the carrot and parsnip soup and it was amazing,the girls all loved it,freshly made,no artificial additives.

The BFM would like everyone to look at their websites and support if you can.
