Hi guys,

I'm a chef that cooks gluten-free dishes from starters to desserts.

I'm not celiac myself but wanted to ask a question.


What is the one dish you miss because of being a celiac? It can be anything!



I ask this because I love cooking gluten-free dishes: sticky toffee puddings, raviolis bread and butter pudding, fresh pasta, fresh breads and so on.

But what I really want is your feedback instead of me guessing.

Thank you for your feedback,

Scott

I can't pick just one thing...
a really good pizza crust would be nice
a soft, non crumbly bun for a good burger
egg pasta
ravioli, manicotti
egg rolls..not rice paper rolls
and the holy grail..really good bread! :D

I'm not a chef but teach culinary classes and am obsessed with cooking and food. :D I can make most things gluten-free very well except for the following:

- buttery flaky croissants
- fabulous ciabatta with good chew
- phyllo and puff pastry (I miss making Beef Wellington, Steak and Ale Pie) but I do adapt
- soft puffy yeast doughnuts - I really dislike cake doughnuts
- very good chewy pretzels
- wonderful fresh pasta - my gluten-free homemade is pretty decent and to remedy lack of flavour I incorporate fresh herbs betweeen layers, spinach, butternut squash and so on.
- English muffins - have tried a few gluten-free commercial brands such as Kinnickinnik and they are deplorable!
- I can make a pretty mean pizza crust but really miss the wood-fired crusts in Europe. However, as we do have a wood-fired oven at our house in Croatia we are going to be doing a lot of practicing! Can't wait.

Currently I am perfecting buttermilk biscuits and scones.

Like you, I enjoy making Sticky Toffee Pudding and so on. I find it very easy to make gluten-free focaccia, cakes, cookies, squares, brownies and thankfully some of my favourite desserts such as creme brulee, panna cotta, semifreddo and pavlova and dacquoise are naturally gluten free.

I am a pretty picky scratch cook and tend to be a bit of a perfectionist in the kitchen. When I make fresh pasta most people are all over it; however, I cannot be satisfied until it is perfect in my mind. :)

The above three would be top on my list. I'll probably never be able to have even gluten-free versions however as croissants and puff pastry depend on layers of butter and I cannot have dairy or soy. Earth Balance soy free dairy free spread is good but it doesn't chill to the extent that butter does.

Also if anyone can make a gluten-free Triscuit or Shredded wheat they are a genius. One of the few processed things I miss--mainly for the texture is Triscuits. I've looked and have not found even any regular recipes for duplicating Triscuits, let alone gluten free ones.

I know what you mean! Triscuits have that pleasant textured crunch that is unique and goes so well with so many yummy things. Thanks a lot for bringing it up! Kidding. :lol:

CheezIts. I found some crackers that were not entirely unlike CheezIts. They had about the right texture but were lacking that disgustingly wonderful orange fake cheesy flavor!

Well, you're in luck! gluten-free mozzarella sticks and onion rings are easy to make and just as delicious. I know what you mean about soft pretzels, potstickers and fried chicken, though. Fried chicken can still be nearly as good, though.

Have you tried millet and buckwheat pasta combination? I cannot recall the brand name but it is the best gluten-free pasta I have tried by far. Vastly superior to icky corn and rice pasta. And I am extremely picky about food. Wait a minute - it is called King Soba and comes in a few flavours. Expensive but worth it. It has a nice texture and flavour.
