Michelin-Starred French Chef Shoots for the Gluten-Free Moon

Celiac.com 04/08/2016 - An all gluten-free menu by a celebrated French chef? At half price? Oui! Michelin-starred French chef is going all-in on gluten-free food by banishing gluten from her entire menu, and cutting prices in half to start it all off.

Photo: CC--Dennis33053The announcement, by Chef Reine Sammut, makes L'Auberge de la Feniere in Provence the first restaurant in France to have both a Michelin star and a gluten-free menu.

The classic restaurant built in a stone barn and surrounded by vineyards has indeed adopted a gluten-free menu, says Sammut, who has had her Michelin star since 1995.

She was inspired to make the change by her daughter, Nadia, who is a chemist and suffers from celiac disease. Sammut was eager to make the change to a gluten-free menu so that "everyone could eat at the same table."

"The basic ingredients needed are not easy to find, but Nadia tracked them down," said Sammut. "I only had to test them."

L'Auberge de la Feniere is offering its gluten-free menu, which even has gluten-free puff pastry, at half the usual price to encourage people to try the restaurant's new, gluten-free cuisine. She had me at "gluten-free puff pastry."

"Sammut was eager to make the change to a gluten-free menu so that "everyone could eat at the same table."

What a novel idea, and hopefully more will follow her lead.

Eating fresh, whole food meals is not difficult and I am 99% certain that those who can eat gluten wouldn't even miss it while enjoying a quality meal.

I was working at a anime convention this weekend setting up and running A/V for panel rooms, I know I was handling a bunch of stuff, and around gluten eaters EVERYWHERE, people were walking around eating stuff, and I had to work with equipment others were using while snacking on gluten foods........

PS I am not questioning you here but mango is a odd food, many people might have a allergy to the skin and out side of the mango but have no issues with the inside meat. Others are allergic to the whole fruit. It has to do with a compound found in the skin that is very harsh and triggers allergic...

Yes, we like peanut butter in the blender with frozen bananas and a liquid (juice, coconut water, almond milk...). You can add berries or even ginger and turmeric.

Yes, because each persons immune system is different there's a lot of uncertainty around tests. I think I'd be gluten-free for a couple of weeks when I first tested and my doctor thought it wouldn't make a difference. I often wonder if I'd have got a test just before going gluten-free, when I fel...
