Gluten Free

GFQ Closure :(

GFQ (Gluten Free Queen), the first ever fully gluten-free takeaway, announced its closure this week.

I only had the chance at visiting the takeaway in Huddersfield, UK the one time but I have been following their story on Facebook.  The women who ran the shop seemed so passionate about what they had achieved and were so lovely when I visited, even giving me lots of free samples of other GF products, it is such a shame that it had come to an end.

However...

You'll still be able to take advantage of some of their delicious gluten-free cuisine! They are now trading under the name of Gourmet Food Queen.

This means they will l no longer be operating 100% gluten free. There was simply not enough clientele to sell only GF. They will still provide gluten-free options upon request, but please be advised they are no longer coeliac accredited because of costs involved.  But from my experience, coeliac accredited or not they knew what they were doing and I have trust in there food being GF and free from cross-contamination. 

All the best, Leia

That's too bad! Do they have other takeaways elsewhere or is the one in Huddersfield the only one?

I bet it would, especially with the uptrend of GF places to eat! The only issue I assume would be the astronomical rents that cities can bring.
