Gluten free Autumn in Milan – Autunno senza glutine a Milano

By on Nov 30, 2014 in Italy, Milan, Travel journal | 0 comments

Travelling in the north of Italy in these weeks often means rainy and cold days. But, if you’re lucky like I was, you can find (almost) warm days and nice weather. Arrived in Milan in late afternoon, I had my dinner at Petit paradis restaurant. A gluten free pizza called Patatosa (potatoes, mozzarella cheese and speck), and gluten free chocolate salami as dessert in a easy and cosy environment. Cheap dinner (less than 20€ beverages included) and nice non-Italian staff. The following day, close to Corso Vercelli (one of the shopping streets in town), by chance I found out an amazing store: Out of gluten.

And a typical “bruschetta”, which is grilled bread with fresh tomatoes, salt and Extra-Virgin oil. We finally had a gluten free dessert made with white and black chocolate. Really conscious about coeliac needs, they’re working to improve their bread experience (they just have industrial bread products at the moment, due to contamination risks). I’ll be back soon! Having a walk in Milan and finding out new gluten free places…that’s exciting 🙂 Viaggiare nel nord d’Italia in queste settimane spesso significa incontrare giorni freddi e piovosi. Ma con un po’ di fortuna é possibile trovare giornate (quasi) calde e un clima piacevole. Arrivata a...
