GREAT GF eating in Toronto

IL FORNELLO -  It's a chain in Canada, and it's amazing in what they offer. Was in Toronto this Spring for 5 days, and ate there 4 times. Delicious gourmet GF PIZZA (see pic) - thin crust, cooked in the stone pizza oven on A SEPARATE PAN. (the rest of the pizzas go straight on the stone.) It was delicious. They say they have a steady stream of celiac customers.

I can't remember, I dont think it was a separate menu, but rather a notation that all pasta and pizza items can be made GF.. Anyhow, great place. Love to see this kind of care and focus happen in the US. (This is my first post, so hope this is useful)

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

Pete I am a Torontonian and was a devotee of Il Fornello before becoming celiac but cannot tolerate rice or potato flour so make excellent pizzas at home using almond flour, egg oil and basil and oregano for the crust.

There are a slew of great toppings to choose from
I am on The Specific Carbohydrate Diet which is Gluten Free but does not include much store bought convenience food.

We are not dairy free but must be sure cheese us aged at least thirty days so it is lactose free. Eight years on SCD has made me a fast and fantastic cook. I gave a cooking course at Loblaws with the two co-authors of the Cookbook Grain-Free Gourmet

Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.

Best Foods or Hellman's on the East Oast is Gluten free. You can make your own too! Easy! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mayonnaise-recipe I buy any brand of sugar.

Are you sure you do not have fractures? I fractured two vertebrae two months after my celiac disease diagnosis DOING NOTHING!!!! Turns out I have osteoporosis from untreated celiac disease. ? Consider a bone scan.

Be sure to let us know how it goes! Help keep them in business by writing a review on Find Me Gluten Free! Enjoy! ?

I'm a naturalist -- I don't use drugs, creams, etc. I do, however, scratch** the rash until I'm almost bleeding and then dump isopropyl alcohol in it -- that relieves the itch for quite some time. (Stings at first though.) I get the rashes on my legs. ANYWAY, I have found that a gluten-free diet is the only (or best) approach -- it's certainly the most natural, in my opinion. It took six months before I felt I was cleansed of gluten. I went nine months (or more) without a rash. Then, I mistakenly ate some soup with barley in it. Got the rash. I let it run its course while getting back to & staying on a gluten-free diet. My best advice is just to stay on a gluten-free diet. Be strong, brave. You can do it! ** I should clarify that when my rashes start itching, I can't help but scratch (excessively). I am not suggesting scratching yourself (with or without cause) as a means to an end. Don't scratch if you can.
