Hello I've just come home from 2 weeks in corsica. You can find gluten free food there but have to keep an eye on the staff as they don't realise croutons are bread bits added on top of a salad! I went to the large Supermarkets, there are 3, Casino, Super U, and E.Leclerc. a small Carrefour by side of the road, for a small loaf but didn't stock much in the way of fruit or veg. E.Leclerc had the best supply of most things, Schar bread for 3.70 a loaf. and lots of packs of biscuits, pasta. The Casino one was the one I went to on day 1, and a loaf there was 5 euros, a 300g box of cereal like cornflakes but with chocolate whisps in for £5. Husband had a fit, they do sell maize cornflakes but says on box made in a factory with wheat flour. There are a lot of greengrocers on the side of the road selling lots of oranges olives, and nectarines, apricots. I ate in a lot of bars and restaurants where they explained a lemon cheese cake was made with chestnut flour. It seems no ice cream there is gluten free. Sorbet is, but I always feel like that is a bit like iced water. Well I survived and was keen to get home to the nice weather here. Youngest son doesn't realise the plant pots need watering every day. |
