Plan ahead Ring the venue beforehand to speak to the headwaiter or chef and explain your needs.

They may not necessarily understand about coeliac disease, so you may need to explain the requirements of a gluten free diet and cross contamination.

Check again on arrival that your requests have been relayed to the relevant staff.

Don't always expect to be able to eat from the menu. Ask if the chef can provide something gluten free. Many restaurant chefs are happy to oblige once they know the reason for the request.

Tip: Try to visit the establishment in person, rather than order over the phone.

Chinese Takeaways: Plain rice is likely to be safe. Avoid wheat noodles and dishes containing soy sauce. Ensure that you ask for the wok to be cleaned before cooking your meal.

Ask for non-thickened stir-fried dishes made without soya sauce and served with rice.

Indian Takeaways Most dishes are made with chickpea flours; although chickpea flour is naturally gluten free it can be contaminated if a reliable brand is not used.

Poppadums are usually made with chickpea flour but maybe fried in contaminated oil so are not always safe.

Most curries are made with catering pack sauces which may contain wheat flour, order only where you can be certain no wheat flour is used. …
