I found out that Catch of the Bay Fish & Chips at Masstown Market  in Debert prepares many gluten-free items. They shared this information with the New Glasgow chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association:

New Glasgow’s Gluten-Free Goodies Are Worth The Trip

A few weeks ago I posted about Gluten-Free Goodies, a gluten-free bakery in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. This weekend, I was visiting some friends in Pictou, and they dropped off a big sampler package. (Disclaimer: I am friends with the nephew of one of the owners.) I was drooling just at the sight of it!

Snack Away at Obladee!

Mike and I stopped by Obladee Wine Bar on Barrington Street (across from the Discovery Center) last Friday for a drink. Imagine my surprise when I found all sorts of gluten-free stuff in their snack list!

Their menu focuses on wines by the glass and bottle, but they have a wide range of charcuterie (prepared meat products), cheeses, and condiments. Since most things are prepared by hand, I would say that many of them are likely gluten-free. (It’s hard to say definitively since some of their offerings change daily, but things certainly looked promising. Their menu is also available online at http://obladee.ca/menu/.)

Now, most platters come with bread, which is obviously not an option for Celiacs. They do have gluten-free crackers, however! And after you’re done stuffing your face with wine and cheese, try out a gluten-free truffle or two!

I was too full that night to try any of their snacks, but trust me – I’ll be back there soon to do a full investigation!

Chex is now on the Canadian General Mills product page at http://www.lifemadedelicious.ca/en/ProductPantry/Chex.aspx#. There is also a sign-up box for a gluten-free newsletter!

I have also had some confirmed visual sightings of Chex in some Canadian stores. I haven’t seen it here yet, but if YOU spot Chex, please comment or e-mail us and let us know where you found it!

Jamieson’s Irish House is a Real Gem

My best friend came home from Calgary a few weeks ago and wanted to get together for lunch. When he asked where I wanted to go, I immediately said Jamieson’s, a small Irish restaurant just ten minutes from where we both were. (It’s too fancy to be called a pub, in my opinion!) I had had a quick look at their gluten-free menu last year and wanted another try.

Sail Ahead to the Pilot House!

The long weekend this year found Mike and I in PEI. To celebrate our anniversary, I asked him to make a reservation at a nice restaurant. I made a list of possibilities, he did some research and made some calls, and we ended up at The Pilot House in Charlottetown.
