In Topic: Carrabbas Updating gluten-free Menu

Still no gluten free pasta.  I don't understand the concept of Italian food restaurants with a gluten free menu that don't offer gluten-free pasta.  Its insane.  I like their Chicken Bryan entree, but with so many other gluten-free Italian options out there, I rarely frequent Carrabbas anymore.

Gluten free pizza is coming to the US from Pizza Hut but I still do not believe it is 100% for Celiac sufferers, although it is supposed to be a better grade than Dominos (bread is made by Udi's and the ingredients are kept separate from their main stock).  


I don't know why any Celiac sufferer would even be surprised they ended up sick off a Dominos pizza.  They have more warnings and disclosures than a crate full of nuclear waste.

I'll have to get that cookbook.  I've actually just recently started baking my own biscuits and have finally gotten a really decent mix.  I use Pioneer brand country gravy instead of mixing it myself but its not bad at all.  As for pancakes and french toast and waffles and the like, I mastered those long ago lol.  But sometimes I am lazy and would love to just hit a local restaurant or gasp...God, forbid, a restaurant chain and have a real authentic gluten-free breakfast.  I'm looking at you Cracker Barrel!

I prefer Saltgrass Steakhouse - they even have gluten free bread before your meal comes out.

Just to second what everyone else has said - I think we all loathe hearing we have to omit sauces or bread or whatever makes the item that item.  I for one, don't believe a burger without bread is a burger.  It's a slab of meat.  Also, if there is a Mexican dish or Mexican styled dish, have options for corn tortillas.  Another big pet peeve is restaurants that advertise a gluten-free selection when in fact its just a salad or simple meat and rice combo or anything else that is naturally and normally gluten free.  Not only is it lazy, it almost seems like false advertisement.  This might be a point of contention for a lot of others with other allergies, but not all of us have egg, nut, dairy allergies, etc.  It would be nice to have a mixture of available ingredients, especially in baked goods.  Lastly, desert and breakfast are a large black hole for us gluten-free folks.  Desert options are almost always limited to cupcakes or some type of flourless fudge/Ice-cream combo (blech!), and that's if we are lucky.  And I would kill for gluten-free pancakes, biscuits and gravy, waffles like a regular person.
