There's an article posted today on Epicurious.com about the gluten free cooking spree in New York last week. As soon as I started reading it, I was furious - because what the writer claims could not only make it even harder for us to make our point in restaurants, but it's misinformation that I think could make newbies sick. Here's the part that got me:

Dinners out involve a pre-meal waiter interrogation, or, if I'm feeling lazy, scraping off, and eating around, any unadvertised flour coating. Not a satisfying culinary experience to say the least.


And here's the whole article. Anyone else read this and cringe? I can just see it now. The waiter will just tell us to pick off the croutons or take the breading off the fish...

That does seem like words fo someone who is not very sensitive. The nice thing about restaurants is you rarely pay for a meal before you've eaten (assuming we're talking about places with waiters!). I'd simply refuse to pay for a meal where I was told to "pick out the croutons"

What got me was the comment "even a dime size portion" will cause problems. This would make it seem like crumbs, cross-contamination, and the like aren't serious.

I wonder how often the author gets sick ...

I read that article today also. I thought that it was poorly written and researched for such a large magazine. Pretty sad that the author HAS celiac.......doesn't even know the damage she is causing herself by picking the breading off and such. Geesh!!! Just makes more work for those folks like us to re-educate the people who read bad articles like that!!
