High Tea. alas.. no such thing exists for the coeliac amongst us.. ahhhh see.. that's where you're wrong..
It had come to my attention that an establishment in Victoria Park (Western Australia) put on a particularly lovely high tea and best of all, could cater to the gluten impaired.
Not to sound crude but WAHOO! 'twas music to my ears I tell you.
and so... my Coeliac and gluten intolerant compadres ~ it was with great intestinal fortitude ( see what did there .. ) I urged myself to delve deeper ~ purely for the greater good of others of course.. It was a selfless quest ~ one that I humbly took on.. (strangely it wasn't that hard) and before I knew it, I was in over my head. There was nothing else for it.. I was FORCED to make a booking. FORCED I tell you.

It is important to note that The Sassy Cookie is not a 100% gluten free environment.
Although the gluten free cakes and some other food items are made from gluten free ingredients and great care is taken in prep and baking ~ The Sassy Cookie cannot guarantee the possibility of possible cross-contamination from other products in their kitchen.. However.. I am happy to report that this little Coeliac happily indulged and suffered no ill effects :)
