‘Come Dine With Me’ event to highlight locally-sourced gluten-free ingredients

Published: 16/07/2013


Drewton’s Farm Shop near South Cave is hosting its own Come Dine With Me-style event, but, in a unique twist, the entire menu will be gluten-free to highlight the availability of gluten-free ingredients produced right here in Yorkshire.

Even the wines and beers served on the evening will be gluten-free, ensuring that the entire menu is suitable for those who are gluten intolerant. The menu includes cocktails and canapés on arrival, a starter, a ‘pie plate’, main course, pudding, and coffee with cakes. It deliberately features gluten-free versions of ingredients and foodstuffs that would typically be off-limits for those with an intolerance, such as pies, cakes and bread. All of the ingredients on the menu have been sourced from the network of local farmers, growers and suppliers whose goods are on sale in the farm shop.

Katie Taylor, who owns and runs Drewton’s Farm Shop, said: “This is the latest in a series of Come Dine With Me events that we’ve staged; the idea is that guests come in and dine with a handful of the producers whose goods are on sale in the farm shop. These events have generated huge interest in, and support for, our local food and drink producers.

“In response to feedback from customers, and to reflect the fact that more and more people suffer from gluten intolerance these days, we’ve recently extended the range of gluten-free products available in store. We wanted to create a complete menu to showcase these ingredients and demonstrate that it is possible for those with gluten intolerance to enjoy the same dishes as anyone else.”

Katie added: “The format for the evening is fun and informative; we seat guests around large tables so that, if they wish, everyone has the opportunity to chat to the food and drink producers.”

The event will take place on Friday 2 August and tickets are priced at £38 per person. The cost includes the meal, a choice of beer, wine or soft drinks, and a cocktail on arrival.
