The Intolerant Gourmet App

 

One thing I hear time and time again from people with food intolerances is how difficult it is to eat out.  By out, I mean anything from a lunchbox meal for work to a smart dinner at a restaurant.  Essentially, and not to put too fine a point on it, eating out anywhere can be a serious challenge for food sensitivities.  Firstly, there’s the simple issue of finding somewhere where you think you can eat the food (for example, French is out, Chinese is out, Italian is usually out unless they will do gluten-free and egg-free pasta, Mexican is out, in fact, let’s face it, most places are out).  Then you have to be willing to draw attention to yourself with the waiters and the chef and ask them to tell you specifically what’s in every dish.  Then, if they take you seriously (and lots don’t of course, choosing to see you as a fussy eater instead) they may grudgingly offer you an adapted dish from the menu, which you have to accept, whether you really want it or not.  Finally, you then get to play Russian roulette, eating a meal that you wouldn’t have ordered given the choice, which may or may not make you sick anyway.  Wow, you can see why most people with serious food intolerances choose not to eat out very much.  It’s one of the reasons why it’s so important for those of us with food sensitivities to eat well - and I mean really well - at home.  Where else will you get to enjoy delicious food catered to your needs?  The truth is not many places.  That’s also the reason why when I travel, I like to self-cater.  Going on holiday or for a weekend away should be a treat and food is very much part of that.  Being able to cater for yourself and everyone else too, serving delectable allergy-friendly food should be a right, not a privilege!  Which is why I’m so incredibly excited to be able to introduce you to The Intolerant Gourmet App.

Just like the book, the app is packed full of delicious recipes all free from wheat, dairy, soy, eggs and yeast.  Using gorgeous photography by Jan Baldwin (and delectable styling from Joss Herd) there’s everything you might need for cooking food intolerances at home, on holiday, in fact, wherever you choose to be.  What’s more, it also contains a handful of videos just for you, the option to shop online for the ingredients, a clever hands free clapping sensor to turn the pages for you, plus, you can search the app by recipe, ingredient, meal type and food intolerance!  Making it even easier to cook for you food intolerances wherever you are whenever you like.  I’m so proud of it and I so hope you like it too.

Hi Emma,
Thanks for your comment and sorry for the delay in my reply. Sadly, The Intolerant Gourmet app is only coming out for the iphone and as yet there are no plans to make it for android. My apologies, if I could change it I would. In the meantime, there will be plenty more recipes and tips coming on the blog so do keep reading.
Happy cooking.
Pippa
