Just been to eat at a local (near Newcastle, County Down) country club establishment having rung first to check GF option's were available. Having turned up we carefully went through GF menu options (very little for non meat/ fish eater) with waitress who liaised with Chef twice at least. Decided to accept vegetarian GF curry with rice. Whilst waiting the Chef sent someone to ask if I could eat cream. Considering nothing other than GF was mentioned it rather perturbed me as to what was going through his head.
When my curry arrived it had poppadums on the plate. Made me very nervous as many makes contain small amounts of normal wheat flour despite being predominantly GF flours from chick peas or lentils.
Internet advice was to ask to see packet but decided to leave them rather than upset the Chef.
