Social media has really opened up my gluten free community for the better. Yes I admit to scrolling though my feeds mindlessly when I should be doing other things. However, for me it has been the most incredible experience, finding and connecting with fellow gluten free people, interested in food, eating out, new products. Unlike blogging, which I have never found that interactive here in the UK, unlike America. However, via Twitter and Instagram I have made real friends, discovered a whole lot of inspiration for gluten free living, and actually launched my business GF Gathering purely via those networks. For me it has been life changing.
So I wanted to share with you today, some of those people and businesses out there that are responsible for some incredible imagery, inspiration and dedication via Instagram.
The lovely, passionate and GF foodie scout Issi, shares so many of her GF finds on her feed, you will need to create a list of places in the capital and beyond.. Recent find is a GF Tiramisu at Rossopomodo.
Author of the Modern Way to Eat, Anna Jones came to my attention through her gluten avoiding recipes. Her books are incredible and her Instagram feed is the same. Dreamy ingredient shots, incredible food styling (she started life in the Jamie Oliver team) make it a great place for foodie inspiration that happens to be gluten free.
Anonymously posted photos, this feed will keep you up to date on all the latest products and restaurants. And my does this lady eat out! But thankfully she shares her mini reviews when posting pictures, and often shares her own recipes. A like minded soul, this one refuses to be restrained by their gluten free diet!
Honorary Londoner Claire, originally from the US currently chooses London as home whilst navigating its gluten free offerings, and sharing as she explores. Recently diagnosed coeliac, Claire is another one on top of the latest GF finds – it was her that confirmed WAGFree’s reopening after much GF grapevine discussions.
Ian and Deborah of this relatively new dedicated GF Cookery school run classes in Yorkshire and London and are passionate advocates of making your own GF foods, demystifying GF baking. I learnt to make baguettes with them, and now make them weekly. Discover what they get up to on their feed… currently GF beer!
Devon based Vicki is an absolute whizz in the kitchen, using her interest in science to nail the alchemy behind many a gluten and dairy free recipe. I am so often in awe of the things she puts in so much dedication to make. Gluten free churros anyone??? Seriously, this lady needs a book deal.
