There were some great gluten free choices: Arancini, crepes, curries, nachos, empanadas, breads, cakes, cookies, gluten free beer on tap. David and I tucked in. Read on to see my photo diary, and some thoughts cross-contamination… I started off with a gluten free mozzarella & Italian ham arancini from Risotto2go and a sip of gluten free beer from Westerham Brewery. David drank most of it. 😉 ADVERTISEMENT David had a glorious curry from The Naughty Roti. Served with rice rather than roti to keep it gluten free. There was a real variety of foods – cuisines from all over the world. I liked the …
