Serial Cooking – Roast Sausage And Lentils With Wild Rocket And Cherry Tomatoes


This recipe is another from Lindsey Bareham in The Times.

The main ingredients, are 24 M & S gluten-free cocktail sausages, a 250g sachet of cooked lentils, 125g of sliced chorizo and 400g of cherry tomatoes.

It is exceedingly simple and is shown in these pictures.

It may be quick, but it’s gorgeous.

My First Pork Pie In Almost Twenty Years

It is just a couple of years short of twenty years since I was diagnosed as a coeliac and I have been gluten-free ever since.

Yesterday, I found some mini gluten free pork pies in Marks and Spencer.

The two of the four I’ve eaten were small and perfectly formed. They didn’t taste half bad either.

My First Ocado Delivery

I finally had an Ocado delivery today.

There are a lot of bags. But then there were a lot of bottles of Celia gluten-free lager and a couple of boxes of Coke.

A Lazy Man’s Supper

This was my supper sourced from the De Beauvoir Deli.

I wouldn’t normally be so lazy, but I had a lot to do and as I was buying some paint from the DIY store opposite, by buying supper, it saved me another trip later in the day. The steak came from Downland Produce and the potato dauphinoise from Ginger’s Kitchen.

I enjoyed it immensely!

Krakow – A City Of Maps, Clocks, Trams And Gluten Free Food

Krakow is well-known for its buildings, but I found some other things equally fascinating in a delightful city.

All of the maps, clocks, trams and excellent gluten-free food, made the city a real joy to explore and I would recommend the city to anybody.

Braunschweig is known to the British as Brunswick.

I passed through on a train on my Home Run from Gdansk and as it was a place I’d never heard of before that trip, when I planned this trip, I noticed that I could change trains at the city.

This Google Map shows the layout of the city.



It could be a sensible stop on a rail trip across Europe.

It was also a friendly stop, which started when the lady in the tram information kiosk, gave precise instructions on how to either walk or use a tram to the centre and then sold me a pair of tickets for the tram. The tram was not very new, but it was in good condition with very good information. Incidentally, the tram system has a unique metre gauge, which is being updated so that the tram routes can share with trains. Sounds like stealth train-trams to me!

As I had a good late lunch in the Cafe Alex, I’m glad I visited. It was only after I returned that I found that it was a brand controlled by Mitchells and Butlers. Some of their UK restaurants I’ve eaten in, don’t know their allergies as well as the Germans.

I must try out some of them again.

Lunch In Chemnitz

It is probably interesting to compare my lunch in the Ratskeller in Chemnitz with the scraps I scrounged in Middlesbrough a few months ago, on a day when Ipswich lost and the trains screwed me up rotten.

I only had a tuna salad.

I’ve tasted worse, but it lacked a certain tastiness, although it was very unlikely to do me any harm.

At least the menu indicated gluten, which is very difficult to detect in many places in the UK. The German system of a series of letters and numbers would be welcomed here.

A Wet Evening In Dresden

The weather up to now had been hot and sunny, but by the time I got to Dresden it was raining hard.

But hey, I’m English and we may go out in the mid-day sun, but we also don’t shrink from the rain.

The meal was excellent and it would warrant a separate post if more of my pictures came out properly.

Supper With Celia

I had supper in a restaurant called Švejk Restaurant U Karla, which I found by typing “gluten free restaurant Prague” into Google.

The food is traditionally Czech and I found it excellent.

I don’t think you call the Celia gluten-free lager or the gluten-free bread traditional, but it is also Czech and excellent.

The only problem with the restaurant is that due to Prague’s maps and information, I found it difficult to find. In the end I was just on the point of giving up, when I found it.

I was certainly very pleased that I persevered.

An Almost Vegetarian Lunch At Chimera In Krakow

I found Chimera in the pocket guide of Krakow I took with me.

There is some tuna in the salad, but for vegetarians, that is of course optional.

It is well worth a visit, as this review in Trip Advisor says.

As to location, the restaurant is just a short walk from Rynek Główny.
