Perthshire diner reels in awards for gluten-free fish and chips

Perthshire diner reels in awards for gluten-free fish and chips

Perthshire-based roadside diner, the Real Food Café, has scooped two Gold Awards at the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards 2018, which celebrate excellence in the free-from food service industry.

The Real Food Café was the only Scottish eatery to win Gold Awards in the Crème de la Crème category – an award open to previous winners – and the Fish and Chip Shops category.

It marks the second year of success in the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards for the Tyndrum eatery, which took home a Gold Award in 2017 in the Fish and Chip Shops category.

Real Food Café owner Sarah Heward commented: "We’ve been serving gluten-free fish and chips since we opened in 2005, well before it became a mainstream trend. We’re really invested in training staff around the importance of offering gluten-free options to our diners and ensuring that we cater for a wide range of dietary requirements.

"It’s absolutely fantastic to be recognised by the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards for our continued efforts to delight our customers with outstanding service and quality dishes that exceed their expectations. We look forward to another successful year in 2019.”

Held on 20 November at the Excel Centre in London, the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, run by FreeFrom FoodsMatter, are in their fifth year.

Judges from the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards visited the c afé incognito to taste the fish and chips and test the knowledge and skills of staff members in catering for special dietary requirements.

FreeFrom Eating Out Awards Director Michelle Berriedale-Johnson said: "The overall standard of entries this year was extraordinarily high. It appears that if an eatery decides to go ‘freefrom’ they do it 110% and nothing is too much trouble to ensure that their food sensitive guests are not only kept safe but have a really enjoyable eating experience.”

Gluten-free fish and chips at the Real Food Cafe starts from £6.95 for a snack portion, and is served with coeliac-friendly mushy peas, homemade tartare sauce and even gluten-free vinegar.

As well as fish and chips and other chip shop favourites, the café serves an award-winning selection of home baking, including its gluten-free chocolate fudge cake and fruit scone, both of which have previously been awarded a Great Taste Award.
