A Taste of Success

The Gluten Free Kitchen, a cherished establishment founded in 2005 by Sue Fleming, has evolved into a beacon of hope for individuals grappling with coeliac disease

Sue, with her unwavering commitment to addressing the challenges faced by those in search of gluten-free and ‘free-from’ food, embarked on a culinary journey.

Not content with staying confined to the virtual realm, The Gluten Free Kitchen expanded its reach.
