Coeliac on TV: My interview with ARTE

They say do something every day that scares you…WELL.

I was recently invited to take part in a TV feature for European arts and culture broadcaster ARTE about the rising popularity of the gluten free diet…and I did it! I talked on telly!


My job was to give a coeliac perspective on the the changing world of gluten free food and show the reporters around a few of my favourite coeliac-friendly places in central London.

We did an interview + some pretend blogging in Beyond Bread, another bit of interview and gluteny-food throwing in Cavendish Square, and a gluten free meal with my boyfriend David in Honest Burger.

(All places featured in my 8 Places to grab a Gluten Free lunch near Oxford Circus post!)

As a fairly reserved person, this was a hop skip and a jump out of my comfort zone. I had a great time filming with ARTE though, and I’d love to do more stuff like this in the future. 

Here it is! This clip also features the blogger / cookbook maestro Deliciously Ella and Food Analyst Kiki Soininen.

Gluten – die neue Angst

No Description


Note: At first I wanted to run away and hide forever when I realised I’d just talked about my bowels on international television (the translator *would* go silent at the moment I said ‘diarrhea‘, ha!) but ah well. Hopefully my honesty was refreshing. 😉

Did any of my lovely European readers catch Yourope last Saturday? Let me know in the comments what you think of the show, and do share with your french and german-speaking gluten free friends. 😀
