Ilumi make allergen-free food but their aim is to try and be a little bit more creative with it all. None of this flavorless stuff you find filling the small specialty section down at the local supermarket. This stuff has some real guts to it.
On the menu this week there’s been Slow Cooked Beef Casserole, Aromatic Thai Red Curry with Yellow Basmati Rice and, tonight’s dish, Thom Kha Gai Soup.
First off – The Slow Cooked Beef Casserole.
My first thought when I opened the packet and the aroma filled my nostrils was ‘Dogs dinner!’ However, once I had dished it out onto a plate with a slice of bread (keeping it simple) I was ready to change my mind. One mouthful later and my thoughts were…… ‘Dogs dinner!’ I don’t like to be harsh but it’s not an experience I would want to repeat any time soon.
Now this one was a different thing entirely. From the moment I snipped the packet my taste buds were going wild and once it was on a plate it looked a treat.
It looked good, it smelt good and what do you know it tasted good. Needles to say the dog starved that night. (Rhetorically speaking, we don’t actually have a dog)
Day three – Thom Kai Gai Soup
Upon snipping the pack I sensed the presence of my old nemesis. So, coconut, we meet again! I have never been a fan of coconut in food so when it’s distinctive smell filled my nostrils I was not confident about enjoying this one. It was, however, quite pleasant indeed. Not bad to say I try to avoid coconut-flavored food.
So there you have it. A 2 out of 3 score. Not bad for allergen free food that usually tastes of nothing and on tope of that it’s all microwave food as well. I mean come on microwave usually means one thing. Nuke then puke but not this time.
So if you or one of your clan suffers from food allergies why not live it up a little and check them out at www.ilumiworld.com
