A Classic Diner with Real GF Options

My son ordered the chicken guacamole melt with a side of hand cut fries. It came with unbelievably good and normal-sized gluten free bread. I had to ask what brand it was…it was that good. That’s when I found out that they baked it on the premises and have an entire bakery in their basement that is divided up to avoid cross-contamination. I had a cobb salad and an order of their Disco Fries, hand-cut fries served with a side of brown mushroom gravy and a side of cheese sauce for dipping. DELISH!

A Safe Gluten-Free Haven is like a Home Away from Home

Kennebunk and Kennebunkport offer several restaurants that are tuned in to the gluten-free diet, too. We frequently stop at H.B.

A Delicious Gluten-Free Food Truck in Connecticut

In the past there wasn’t much gluten-free food available, aside from maybe an Italian ice or kettle corn, so we set out to get either of these. Then my husband saw it: a chalkboard sign that read “The Celiac Epicurean”, local, farm fresh, 100% gluten-free.

Gluten-Free Food Festivals: Why Should You Go?

OK, so our house has held at least one celiac/100% gluten-free person for over 12 years now and we still go to gluten-free festivals. Why do we do it? That’s easy. Gluten-free food is darn expensive; some of it is fantastic-tasting, but let’s face it - a lot of it is still not very good. So if you are like me, and I suspect a lot of you are, you find a brand of something, say pizza, that you like and you stick with it …for years. It’s good, so why risk wasting your money on trying something else that is quite possibly subpar? You are content…or at least you’ve accepted your lot in life.

Gluten-Free Labeling in Argentina

In Argentina, gluten-free is referred to in a few different ways. Packaged foods will bear the label “sin T.A.C.C.,” which stands for “sin trigo, avena, centeno y cebada,” or “without wheat, oats, rye and barley.” The logo, a bold crossed-out wheat image with the words “sin T.A.C.C.,” is prominent on a lot of packaged foods from dulce de leche (delectable caramel sauce) to sugar packets.
