The classic restaurant built in a stone barn and surrounded by vineyards has indeed adopted a gluten-free menu, says Sammut, who has had her Michelin star since 1995.

She was inspired to make the change by her daughter, Nadia, who is a chemist and suffers from celiac disease. Sammut was eager to make the change to a gluten-free menu so that "everyone could eat at the same table."

"The basic ingredients needed are not easy to find, but Nadia tracked them down," said Sammut. "I only had to test them."

L'Auberge de la Feniere is offering its gluten-free menu, which even has gluten-free puff pastry, at half the usual price to encourage people to try the restaurant's new, gluten-free cuisine. She had me at "gluten-free puff pastry."
