I'm sure this probably stems from the fact that Celiac Disease was first actually discovered in the UK years ago. So they are technically years ahead of us in their awareness and acceptance of the disease. But in a time where TV shows, music, and trade all travel overseas in a millisecond, why hold back on decent food products that would greatly enhance life? Or why not at least pass on some of the secrets that stop gluten-free foods from tasting like cardboard?
Seeing that these good tasting gluten-free foods are in fact out there fills me with a mixture of hope and frustration. The States might not have caught up yet. And for some reason the UK feels like holding out on us. But this just means that the potential is there. And we have come a long way in even our offerings in the States in recent years. All I can say is I'll soak it up when I'm here, fill up my suitcase till I meet weight requirements for the way back, and continue sharing my finds so you can at least live it vicariously along with me.
