Festival Food: The Honest Carrot
Festivals can be a nightmare to negotiate for those of us with coeliac disease. Many a year I’ve survived Reading and Latitude on plain crisps and corn on the cob… But no longer!
I’m so thrilled to see places like The Honest Carrot providing healthy gluten free options in an otherwise junk and gluten filled arena. I first came across them when I played Latitude last year and was so excited to see them at this year’s Reading festival, nestled amongst the countless hot dog and burger stalls.
They offer a fabulous selection of freshly prepared vegan and vegetarian “roasts” and “burgers”, with several gluten free options, including a special gluten free pitta made from the dove flour blend. The lady who served me was really knowledgeable and helpful and it was so refreshing to be able to eat a filling and delicious meal at a festival.
I had the honest “burger” with salad, houmous and a gluten free pitta but I took a photo of the menu so you can see just how many options there were on offer.
I hope to see The Honest Carrot at many more festivals on my touring travels!
