Gluten Free Gathering

Logo

Gluten Free Gathering is run by Kim McGowan, who with a lifetime of experience in the food industry, decided to start something foodie for the Gluten Free community, which she joined in 2007 after diagnosis with Coeliac Disease. 

Starting out in large corporate food industry, she was gradually drawn to the local and seasonal food movement working with like minded organisations such as London Farmer's Markets, Food Lovers Britain, and Food Safari. Now using all her experience from across the industry, she is working hard to bring unique, foodie events that champion small, artisan and independent GF food businesses to inspire the gluten free community at large.

Gluten Free Gatherings are a place to meet other GF people, eat amazing, safe food and be inspired. GF Gatherings are for anyone who eats gluten free, for whatever reason. Coeliac, intolerant, allergic, paleo, fussy. We don’t mind. Just bring your passion for gluten free food to the table.

Each unique event, aims to be a truly positive, dynamic and rich gluten free experience. Come and eat amazing GF food together at independent venues, run by passionate people. Absorb knowledge from inspiring speakers from across the food world. Take part in guided tastings, see cooking demos, get health advice, taste new products, do tours, meet GF authors… and so much more. Chat and share your favourite products with others, your favourite restaurant and blogs. It’s about inspiring each other.

Each event will normally include dinner, a couple of speakers, the chance to make new friends and delve into the Free From Library – a huge collection of diet friendly food books to browse and borrow, enter competitions and more.

Gluten Free Gatherings will take place in the most GF friendly venues around – restaurants, cafes, pubs and businesses that embrace us… not ask if we are a celeriac. Restaurants will be independent operations run by passionate people with quality ingredients at their heart. No offence, but no big chains allowed. For now, we will meet in London. Maybe further down the track we’ll venture further afield.

Really fun event

rona61 attended Gluten Free Gathering - GF Beer Tasting in May 2015, reviewed on 14 May 2015

What a great evening. The two experts who led the tasting were so knowledgeable and helpful. They both had lots of really interesting information about beer in general and GF beers in particular. The tasting was fascinating and I have one or two new favourites now. The event was run really well, the host really makes it easy for attendees to chat and swap experiences. We were also surprised and pleased by the lovely 'goody bags' that we got to take home. If they do it again, don't miss it!

Great Bread and Chats

A lovely evening at GF Gathering again. Was great to have the opportunity to try another of London's GF havens with a bunch of people who 'get it' and are excited by it as much as myself. The bread was fantastic - so many different flavours, the salads that accompanied the quiche the best part of my meal (sadly the quiche pastry didn't live up to expectations), and at the end of the evening when we all circulated and bonded over cake was the best part - especially getting to chat to so many different people. I've been to this event a number of times now (4) and its brilliant seeing some familiar faces and getting to know a new bunch of fabulous people to socialise with.

PS.

Proper bread and cakes

I am actually not gluten free or coeliac, but I took my friend to this last night as a present (she is gluten intolerant). I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. The bread was amazing. I have tried her supermarket stuff and it is a world away from the bread at Romeo's. They toasted it first time, but everyone wanted to try it fresh and I am glad they did or we wouldn't have known how wonderfully soft and fluffy it is.

The cakes were great too. Lovely and moist.

The pastry on the quiche was a bit hard and chewy, so still some work to do there, but the filling was lovely and the salads were full of fresh flavours and plentiful.

Kim was a lovely host. Lara, the owner of Romeo's was very sweet too, she really need not have apologised so much, everything was great!

My only regret is how much wine I consumed. I feel horrendous today ;-)

Friendly, inclusive event

Fab event with lots of like-minded friendly people ready to gabble over some fried chicken - a flavour most of us haven't tasted for years!
I love the feeling of Gluten Free Gathering - everyone so willing to be friendly, chatty and make the most of an evening out with gluten free food. This was my 3rd event - will be going again!
