Celia + Melt: A little photo diary of the Celia Dark launch party

I mentioned earlier this week that Celia were putting on a launch party for their new gluten free lager, and thought I’d share a few snapshots from the night! Celia is a gluten free beer brand, whose Celia Lager is one of the most widely stocked and popular varieties of freefrom beer. The launch was for their newbie, Celia Dark, which is similar to their original beer, but as the name suggests, a darker flavour, with a ”burnt caramel aroma’. The launch was held at the Melt chocolate shop in Holland Park. In a pretty cool and innovative move, Celia and Melt collaborated on some wonderful chocolatey, alcoholic creations for the night, all of which were gluten free!  There was beer + dark chocolate ganache (pictured, above), french macarons, caramels, cocktails, chocolate buttons…who knew that beer and chocolate were so complementary? I am not usually a huge fan of beer, but I was willing to give Celia’s a go. Celia Dark was actually the most palatable gluten free beer I’ve tried (and the only one I’ve finished a whole …

Free #glutenfree beer, you say?

Attention, gluten free Londoners! CELIA lager are launching a new flavour of gluten free beer, and are holding a delectable-sounding, 100% gluten free event in London to celebrate. CELIA lager describe their new creation, CELIA Dark, as “a beautiful Czech beer with a burnt caramel aroma”, with hints of coffee and rye bread.

Next, we’ll titillate your tastebuds with bitter coffee in our delicious Dark dessert cocktails. Then we’ll guide you through a CELIA Dark and chocolate tasting featuring delights from Ecuador and Madagascar, including a devilishly dark 100% chocolate. After we’ll tempt you with a chewy bite of chocolate heaven from our macaroons with CELIA Dark ganache, then, last but in no way least, you’ll finish on sweet high thanks to a limited edition exclusive, …


Brixton: Vozars, a new gluten-free haven

Now this is a campaign I can get behind. Nick McNally and Martin Vozar want to open a completely gluten-free cafe/deli/restaurant in Brixton, serving up a selection of ‘mouthwatering European food’. Mmmm. The guys have a Kickstarter type page to help fund this project, and have some lovely extras thrown in when you donate – Celia lager, WAGfree cakes and even gluten-free cooking lessons with Martin. I really hope this venture takes off as it sounds like they will create a genuinely lovely place not only for those of us avoiding gluten, but for the general population of Brixton.
