      YAY! That sounds wonderful! Can't wait to try it!
      I had heard about their Gluten Free menu, but not actually heard from any one who had tried it!

      Have a great day!

      Hello All,
      There is a group in Chicago... its called the MetroCeliacs... We try to meet once a month with a cooking class, a potluck or easy meals, a speaker... and more... and then we also plan a Supper Club outing at Chicago restaurants once a month.

      I am one of the two founders of the group. It has been a busy summer for myself as well as the other founder Jen. We are looking to have an event-filled Fall... Feel free to join us.

      If you would like to see more about our group, check out our blog

      And if you are interested in knowing more and getting on our evite list, please email Tanya and Jen at

      Hope you find some one near you! Have a great day!

      Incorrect Information
      Hello Fellow Celiacs,
      I was doing a search on a couple of items for my celiac friend... I did a google search (this is almost as common as calling manufacturers and such)... I came across this website list... and I think that a lot of information is incorrect.

      I've been working at this diet for a couple of years, but not everyone has...

      I was looking to find butterscotch chips (in the past I have used Hershey's, but I was looking for anything else that may be gluten free) and also York Peppermint patties... I personally have read the label and thought they were safe, but before I tell others, I always like to double check.

      Anywho... When someone like myself, comes across inaccurate information on the web... what should I do? And are York Peppermint Patties gluten-free? What about HErshey's Butterscotch chips? Any other butterscotch chips?

      Thank you for any feedback!

      It IS a great place. I live in Chicago. Isn't fun to actually order that stuff off of the menu?! And their desserts are awesome. I had gluten-free tiramisu! Ahhh... It was wonderful!

      The owner has 4 of her 7 kids that are celiac!

      Glad you enjoyed it!

    5. tanyad added a post in a topic What's With Kraft?!?   

      If you type in "gluten free" in the Kraft search box- upper right corner... it comes back with an allergies link... and it takes you to the file I think that you are looking for. I am not sure why they don't have a link from the main page.

      Hope that helps.

      I wanted to thank you lovely people for posting information. I printed off the restaurant list and brought it with me this past weekend for my LA trip!

      The Stinking Rose was VERY DELICIOUS! And I enjoyed my first In-N-Out Burger: double-double protein style (no sauce or grilled onions). french fries, and a chocolate shake! I also tried out the Solar Harvest! It was super fun to have a menu in front of me with a selection of options that were gluten free-- And I went there twice so I could get another chocolate cubcake- no joke- gluten free!!! Wonderful! I also ate at a Chipotle next door to the Solar Harvest, for some hard shell tacos.

      Thanks again for posting your info! It was very helpful.

      Thank you for your input. In the past I would have tried to get the caterer's info and contact them, but when contacting the groom with the food intollerances, the list is what he supplied... and I wouldn't want to inconvenience him. So, I will eat before and work it out.

      Korean Food?
      Hello Fellow Celiacs-
      You have been so helpful in the past...

      I am going to a wedding this upcoming weekend, as a date (I do not know the wedding party)... I forwarded my food concerns to my boyfriend and he passed them on to his friend (the groom)... and the groom sent us the list of foods that will be on the buffet. The wedding party is Korean and so is most of the menu.

      I will post the list-- I am curious which foods I should definitely avoid and which ones may be ok. (I was told that there is another restaurant in the same place as the reception, if there is not enough for me to eat!) Thank you for any words of advice.

      Carving station: Roast Baron of Beef

      Korean Style Beef Rib Stew

      Chicken Roulade

      Fresh Jellyfish Salad

      Chef's Choice of Vegetables

      Seasoned Pollack

      Sauteed Mushrooms & Broccoli

      Assorted Grilled Patties

      Noodle w/Beef & Vegetable ((I would assume a NO on this one))

      California Roll/Seaweed Maki

      Fried Shrimp or Crab Claws

      Mixed Green Salad ((I would assume safe if NO croutons))

      Seafood Pasta Salad ((I would assume NO on this one))



      Cucumber Kimchi

      Steamed Rice

      ----What do you think?? Thank you!

    12. tanyad added a post in a topic Book - Have You Read And What Is Your Opinion?   

      I enjoyed the book. I like that it has some sample menus in various ethnic groups, and then lists which items should be gluten free most of the time, and it lists other allergies if you have them...

      As for restaurants in Chicago, a group that I am a part of called the MetroCeliacs does supper clubs every month and has been putting them on a blog... feel free to take a look --

      Personally, one of my favorite restuarants for gluten free food is Ben Pao. They have a gluten free menu, as well as Adobo Grill! Ben Pao is reasonably priced, and Adobo is a little more pricey.

      Hope that helps. Hope you have a nice trip to Chicago! It is a great city!

      Places I Ate In Paris!
      Hello Fellow Celiacs-
      I had posted a few questions about traveling to Paris on this list and I wanted to share my list of restaurants. I had a wonderful time and never got glutened. I found the servers and waiters to be very accomodating... I do not speak french, although I definitely tried. I had such a great trip.

      I hope this helps some of you that are soon traveling to Paris!

      Ok, so I here is my list (I kept a journal)...
      In order in which I ate... I showed my dining card at each place as I ordered!

      1) La Table d'Hediard
      21, place de la Madeleine
      (its on the second floor- first floor wonderful shop of fresh fruits,
      wines, jams, and chocolate on the first!)
      A tad pricey, but by far my favorite and most delicious meal!!
      I ordered Fillet of Roast Beef, fresh greens on the side (30 euros!),
      and sorbet for dessert (with out the cookie)

      2) Cafe Madeline
      1, Rue Trochet - 35, Place de La Madeleine
      Only for drinks.

      3) Cafe de l'Olympia
      I had an Omlet w/chorizo, onions, peppers... with OJ
      (sorry don't know address, walking distance from the Arc de Triomphe)

      4) Le Reminet
      3 Rue Des Grands Degres
      (near Notre Dame- probably the one that you have)
      I ordered the white fish special of the day, I'm not a fish person,
      but it was pretty good.

      5) Hagen Daaz
      I ate a couple different ones, chocolate, one scoop in a dish

      6) Monoprix grocery type stores
      Found allergo brand gluten free stuff-- loved the chocolate chip
      muffins. chocolate chip cookies not so good, herb cracker things-funny
      texture, and saltine like crackers- not sure. The wine at this store
      was very reasonably priced. I also purchased some corn chips.

      7) Relais Trochet
      14, Rue Trochet
      The guy that helped me, was wonderful. I showed him my french dining
      card, and he responded "no problem". He was truly great! I had a
      chicken salad, with out dressing, and served with lemon. It was very
      Here is the link of the card I liked the most- (I also printed one
      English, so I knew what it said!)

      8) Took day trip to Versailles, I packed snacks. I ate fries at the
      little food place in the gardens. They were tasty.

      9) Indiana Cafe (near Opera)- I think there are several-
      7, bd des Capucines
      It is a very American/variety menu... I had a salad, with avacado, and
      a magarita.

      10) Went to Louvre- heard good things about Cafe Marley... opted to
      not go, with a burger costing 19 euros...

      11) Instead we went to Le Musset (and I guess they have a website -
      5, rue de l'Echelle
      We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. I had a lovely salad -
      with chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, rice, lettuce, carrots and maybe
      more! And they also had Berthillion sorbets and ice cream. I asked for
      creme broule for dessert, but the waiter, wasn't sure if flour was
      mixed in with it... so I had the most delicious cherry and strawberry

      12) Be sure to stop by the Fauchon shop for jams... and be sure to
      stop by the Mustard Shop Maille-- fresh mustard- if you like that sort
      of thing.

      I think that is it. I stayed near the Opera and Le Madeleine area... so most places are near that.

      I would suggest that you bring a french dining card. Also pack snacks.
      I carried a Think Organic bar with me at all times. It was nice to
      have snacks in the hotel room also.

      If you have any other questions, let me know. I had such a wonderful time in Paris!
      Have a nice trip!
