For those who work from home or perhaps don’t work at all, it is easy to labour with love in the kitchen preparing all your food from scratch. When I have time to do this myself, I gain great satis...

It is a rare for us to be able to relax together so to celebrate this occasion I booked us in at Vasse Felix winery for a long lazy lunch. On our way to Vasse Felix we stopped off at Bettenay’s Margaret River Nougat Company.

Bad Apples Bar in Applecross help us fight off the storm with a vegetarian gluten free feast! #perthrestaurants   #perthbars   #badapples   #glutenfree   #vegetarian  
I don't know what it is about wet, windy nights that sometimes inspires me to want to leave the comfort of my home and eat out. Mostly when I get these fanciful urges, the Boy will sensibly put his foot down and insist we stay at home where it is warm and dry. However on occasions, for reasons I ...

Some people choose to mix their work life with their personal life and others prefer to keep them totally separate. I imagine that it would be easy to separate the two if you didn't hold any passio...

Reflecting back on last year I have a mixed bag of emotions. It was a roller-coaster experience of opportunity coupled with some of my darkest times in years. I expected 2014 to be a wonderful year...

Growing up in a small family unit means that when it breaks apart, the blow is a harder one to deal with. Having less people for the impact to disperse energy leaves each individual with a harder k...

Whenever I am feeling overindulged, a fail safe way of getting my gut and body to recover is for me to eat a plant based vegan diet for a few days. After the incredibleness of our weekend away in M...

Food & Travel Blog by a girl who refuses to let her food intolerances stand in the way of a good meal!
Introduction

My blog Chompchomp was created to share my discoveries of restaurants that are willing to go that extra mile for us food intolerant customers and make our meals just as delicious and enjoyable as those of our less intolerant companions.

Up until recently I was always so proud to be one of those people who would eat nearly anything. However my world was to change dramatically after the humbling diagnosis of gluten intolerance and fructose malabsorption.  On the up-side, my diagnosis has resolved many of my chronic ailments and has further developed my appreciation for fresh ingredients and skilful cooking.

Although some may say my one track mind tends to always steer toward food, my other passions are cats, running, shoes and more cats. I am big animal lover and a self-confessed crazy cat lady. I have a shoe collection to rival Emelda Marcos and I truly believe you can never have too many shoes.  I hope my blog can help others with food intolerances maintain their love and passion for food and continue to have wonderful experiences dining out in Australia and beyond.
