I don't get it. Just because you are gluten free, does not prevent you from cooking for other people... it doesn't prevent you from drinking beer, if that is your "thing..." it just means that you are selecting and cooking with different ingredients, using different recipes, perhaps using different kitchen utensils, or bringing your own booze to a tailgate. Not all gluten free bread is dry and hard... good grief. Socializing is not just eating with "the herd."
