    gluten free food.

    Are there any other coeliacs in Moscow? Just wondering if anyone had any hints about where might have gluten free pasta, pizza etc. Any help appreciated

    In St. Petersburg, Russia, we use this shop http://maps.yandex.ru/-/CVfVa82C
    If I punch in the name of that shop "диетическое питание" into Yandex and add Moscow I get this http://maps.yandex.ru/-/CVfVaDkh some of the hits looks to worth investigate future.

    There is a store that sells a bit of variety in breads, biscuits etc. I think it is dieticia.ru from memory but it should be listed here in the forums in the diet section.
    I find most supermarkets have a variety of gluten free foods if you look, pasta not uncommon. I find the odd bit here and there.
    I was told about an Italian place near white square that the chefs wife is celiac but have not been there to try. Would like to.
    Azbukha Vkusa as far as supermarkets go has a decent selection of gluten free sauces and salad dressing, they are mostly UK brands.

    http://dietica.msk.ru , two specialised shops, m./ul. Taganskaya, m. Dinamo. Different types of pastas from corn, gf bread, but afair no pizzas. Though they have gf baking mixes so you may try diy. Good luck.

    Andy, Lately, what I have seen new in gluten free foods are kids cereals at Azbuka, a nice variety of salad dressings and various sauces, Asian etc there as well.
    I think the brand is Barietto or some such but two of their ice creams are gluten free. They are in the big round tubs.
    Some of the Azbukas carry frozen fruit sorbets that are gluten free.
    At the Tsvertnoi central market I found a brand of balsamic vinegar that says gluten free (some balsamic generally those with caramel coloring are not gluten free) the brand is Kalamata, very tasty.
    Oh and Azbuka has a range of nuts with seasoning/spices from the UK, that are gluten free, maybe more for the OP than your daughter
    But to the OP, I eat a lot of lentils, salads, beans etc that are naturally gluten free. I find what helps me most are seasonings, sauces etc that I can use that are gluten free in my cooking.
    I occasionally buy bread, pizza shells etc from the shop that has been mentioned but I try not to eat too much bread etc.
    Oh one more, Azbuka carries gluten free breakfasts cereals (not just for kids) and porridge oats.
    If you want to splurge, Globus Gourmet has cereals by Rude Health that are rather pricey.They also have a range of Cottage Delight sauces, most of which say gluten free.
