Okay, I haven't been on this site in ages. I was very disturbed at a local restaurant. St James Gate has a gluten-free menu and I've eaten there before. However, this time I questioned them about having french fries on their gluten-free menu, knowing that they deep-fry breaded items in their fryer. The waitress said that the gluten gets burned off in the fryer! I said this is not true. I wanted to post this because many international visitors come to Banff and eat at this restaurant. Stay safe in your travels.

That's just sad! It's such a shame that some people are so misinformed about the simplest things related to coeliacs!

Well, at least the place HAD a gluten free menu. The closest gluten-free place is only a 10 minute drive, but they don't understand the concept of "Cross-contamination", so it's not worth it.
