My Gluten Free Guide

Gluten Free Festive Party Food Guide 2022

Share this page:

*2022 updates underway*

There are so many gluten free party food items in the shops this year that I decided a little round up was in order.

Many supermarkets are switching ingredients to make items in their standard canape lines gluten free now and nearly everywhere has gluten free pigs in blankets.

This is such a change from a few years ago! We are starting to be spoilt for choice and I love it :D.

My top party food tips

1) Always check the ingredients list on pre-bought party food. Even if something isn’t labelled explicitly as being gluten free, sometimes other items in the range happen to be gluten free too. Allergens will always be highlighted in bold if there are any included in the recipe. If you have gluten free guests, avoid any party food containing wheat, barley, rye or oats.

2) When preparing gluten free party food for guests, always cook them on a clean oven tray or dish and use clean tongs to transfer them to the serving platter.

3) Serve gluten free party food items on dedicated gluten free plates – don’t mix them in with gluteny canapes as this causes cross-contamination.

4) Eat, drink and be merry :)!
