Of the heart

Coori means “of the Heart” in Sicilian and this project is so close to our own heart. To be able to fine great tasting products that are totally gluten free and to supply products that have been on people’s banned list and making their day is such a buzz for us.

I remember somebody who hadn’t been able to eat ravioli for over 15 years since being diagnosed as a coeliac, yet it was her favourite dish that her Italian mother used to make for her. When she tried ours there were tears in her eyes and the memories of her childhood and her now deceased mother came flooding back.

It never ceases to amaze us how taste can trigger long forgotten memories but we’ll never forget the pleasure that something so simple as the opportunity to eat a long missed treat, gave this person. We hope that Coori’s products give you the same pleasure!

Kate, I never thought about the pbisioslity of confusion here! Another example of the major cultural differences between here and there Pumpkins etc are obviously gluten free, unless gluten is added in the cooking. What I meant by squash’ is probably the most common drink for children here in the UK fruit squashes. These aren’t actually or legally juice’ because the juice content is too low even the ones labelled as high-juice. They are more like cordials, in that you usually buy squash in a concentrate form, and add water, though you can buy them ready-to-drink for convenience. They are not a fizzy soda drink. The traditional flavours are orange or blackcurrant, though the range of flavours is ever increasing, and even seasonal, or chosen as part of a marketing ploy (during the vogue for Shrek films, there was a swamp-juice flavour lime, I think). We like pink grapefruit. The thing to beware of is that some very popular traditional variants of fruit squash are made with barley. These are usually clearly labelled as, say, orange with barley’, or grapefruit with barley’, but the squash itself looks identical to the non-barley versions. Always worth checking.
