This winter, London will see the launch of the UK’s first paleolithic and specialist ‘free-from’ restaurant. Following an exceptionally successful run as a monthly pop-up in Sussex, Pure Taste will soon open its 100% gluten free restaurant on London’s Westbourne Grove. The restaurant will not only cater for the paleolithic, and many other specialist diets, it will also provide a gourmet menu and fine dining experience, which would impress any culinary audience.
Nutritional therapist, chef and chemistry graduate, Holly Redman, is the driving force behind Pure Taste. As a coeliac herself, Redman knows the difficulties of eating out with special requirements. “The project is a culmination of everything I love and my experiences so far. The scientist in me loves the scientific challenges of working with unusual ingredients, while the nutritionist and chef relish being able to create amazing, healthy dishes that people will love to eat, whether or not they have food sensitivities” explains Redman.
Pure Taste restaurant will be 100% gluten free, which means no gluten on site at all, whereas contamination is likely in restaurants with “gluten free options” on their menu. Pure taste will also cater for those following the paleo diet, dairy free, grain free, legume free, egg free, low carb, low FODMAP, vegetarian and vegan, to name a few. The menus at Pure Taste will change monthly and focus on seasonal, local ingredients and free-range or wild meats and fish. The restaurant will also have an exclusively organic and biodynamic wine list as well as a range of gluten-free beers, ciders, alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.
Pure Taste’s official opening will be on 3rd December, bookings are available from 1st November.
