Gluten Free Ravioli, Apple Pie & Gelato: Italian Treats in London

Gluten free ravioli is something that I’ve always wanted to try. Readers of this blog will know about my deep and abiding love for Italian food, but ravioli is something I have never been able to track down, a rarity in the gluten free world. This weekend however, I finally got a taste. On the spur of the moment, my boyfriend David and I attended a gluten free evening of Italian food, a collaboration between gluten free producer Coori and Ealing cafe Coda di Volpe.
