ASked a few Big Island chefs to give me what they can do for celiacs.

The first response was from Matt Zabrod at Monettes at the Mauna Kea

on the Big Island.

http://www.monetteshawaii.com/

There are 3 other restaurants there including Manta Ray where my son is the chef so I know they do gluten free meals.

This is what OI got back from Monettes via facebook.

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Matt gives you his regards and says nice piece in NY Times

Daniel Theibunds (spelling?) in Waimea can serve gluten-free on request. Owner has

celiac disease and chef, staff is very aware. Had the fish (stuffed ono that is their speiality) that was the best ever!!! Make sure to ask about the history of the place -- fascinating.

Tommy Bahama's has a gluten-free menu too.

Daniel Thiebaut's is very good and the chef owner Daniel can make an excellent gluten-free meal but it is important to call in advance.

Was there last week for a new years dinner for our Big Island Chefs group so you can imagine how extensive the menu was considering He was serving the areas top chefs. They had to alter 3 different recipes for me which they could have only done with notice. The person with celiac there, whos name I forget was not involved in my particular requests or menus.

Places like this, Merrimans, Alan Wongs, Roys, Sansei and all the resort hotel restaurants will provide gluten-free meals upon request and given notice. The hotels however do keep gluten-free pasta an other foods and mixes on hand for "emergencies".

Thanks for the good info. Didn't know Sansei could accomodate too. Is there an Alan Wong's on the Big Island, have only been to the outlet in Honolulu.

Ken, are you a chef at one the properties? I'll be over in March for a couple of weeks on business and it's always nice to go somewhere where you know gluten-free requirements are understood :-)

Hi Leslie

Alan has a place in the Hualalai property but I forget the name of it -- They just changed chefs too.

I lecture at the culinary school and am on the board of the American Culinary Federation here but no longer in the kitchen -- unless I have to be at the school or my wife tells me to make something!

My son is at the Manta Ray inside the Mauna Kea -- Maybe I said that already

I should be here in March although might have to go to Japan -- What brings you here?

Let me knopw where your staying and I'll make sure they stock up!

take care

Hi Ken,

I am a corporate meeting planner and come to the islands a few times a year. Stayed at Mauna Kea last fall (the renovated rooms are beautiful) and had wonderful meals at the property. In March, we have a group in at the Hilton Waikoloa and in April I will be at the Grand Wailia on Maui.

It is interesting that a few years ago, we never had requests from attendees for gluten-free foods, but now I am seeing an average of 1-2 per program (besides me!). Hotel chefs across the country are becoming more aware of gluten-free needs especially at the higher end properties.

That being said, I still ship in (or bring an extra suitcase) of gluten-free food including sandwich bread, bagels, snacks, salad dressing etc. and supplement with a gluten-free meat or fish entree, fruit, and am usually ok. The hardest part is breakfast (can't do eggs) and lunch and most properties have not starting offering gluten-free breads, etc. At the smaller properties, the chefs have even made me sandwiches with my bread, etc. At the big, busy properties, I get creative. Usually hit the grocery store for some deli meat (Foodland has Boar's Head), lettuce, cheese, etc and keep in a refrig in my room.

In general I have been very happy with the accomodations the kitchen's try to make. Course, I am bringing in alot of business to their property, but I also don't expect them to cater to my gluten-free needs and it all works out. It always amazes me when a gluten-free attendee expects the kitchen to serve their every whim and desire.

Thanks for spreading the word for the gluten-free community with the chefs. Any word you can put in at the Hilton would be great. gluten-free folks are always looking for locations where they can feel comfortable and not worry about eating. If the word gets out that the Big Island is gluten-free friendly, it will get some folks in ... and we know that the tourism is needed. The cruise ships are really starting to see results of this as word of mouth spreads.

BYW, are you on a gluten-free plan or just promote awareness because the need is growing?

Regards, Leslie

Hi Leslie

Glad you enjoyed the Mauna Kea, my son is the chef at Manta Ray restaurant there. He was at Roys before and Peter Merrimans for a number of years. Another restaurant at Mauna Kea, Monettes, and Chef Matt Zabrod bakes gluten-free breads on request and keeps gluten-free flour mixes on hand. I've been celiac for the last 5 years so its still somewhat new for me compared to others on the board. I'm executive Director of the Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers and active in a number of AG and AG tourism related areas.

Chef Charles Charbonneau is the new chef at the Hilton and aware of celiac requirements. The Hilton has a rather large pantry dedicated to gluten-free items. Was at Kona Village at the ACF chefs meeting yesterday. I usually give the line cooks and those working the buffet a tough quiz on whats what but they were more than ready to tell me what I could and could not have and up front about what they didnt know about.

In the 5 years since I've been diagnosed, i've had to do a lot of travel too. Japan, INdia, Italy, Germany, UK bunches of places. I never bring food with other than a package of nuts or something to have on a plane.

Last year we held our 19th annual international tropical fruit conference at the hilton-- the gluten-free meal was always there for me.

What group are you coming in with? I'll see Charles on the 14th when I'm there with our culinary students.

take care

Hi Ken,

That is great news that the Hilton is so gluten-free friendly! Woo Hoo. The group we are bringing in is Health Net IFP/FB Sales Leaders Conference. I'll be at the property from March 8-18 (Group is in house March 12-17). My dietary needs (and any attendees) will also be provided in the banquet orders we send to the hotel, but I sure appreciate you putting in a word for me :-). I know it will make a difference!!! Oh, my last name is Brown in case chef needs to know who I am. I think I may have met the him on my last site visit ( I vaguely remember something about being new to the property).

I am so impressed that you can travel that much and not take food with you. I am scared to leave home without it!Are there any stores to buy gluten-free products in Kona or do you have to have everything shipped in? I'll have some time at the beginning of the week to get into town, but will have my traveling gluten-free suitcase with me too :-).

Regards, Leslie

The chef came just about a year ago so he is fairly new. IN fact it was a year ago while working with students in the kitchen that I found the new gluten-free pantry they have. If you want me to bring something to chef on the 14th, just send it too my email kenlove@kona.net Im not sure how the private messages work on the new system . Island naturals , kona natural foods, Choice Mart have decent gluten free selections for the basics but heavy on the cookies and crap. They do have the gluten-free bagels, breads etc. If you go to pother properties to eat seeing JIm Babian at Four Seasons is good. About the only thing i carry with me is wheat free soy sauce. FOr some reason the places dont have it yet -- most chefs think soy sauce is from soy-- should change the name to wheat sauce!

Hi Ken,

You made me laugh about the soy sauce! I was on a cruise last momth (and was impressed on how much they did for me), except the "superviosrs" in the buffet area, kept trying to offer me food with soy. I kept explaining that soy is made from wheat. The dining room staff was fantastic and I never had a problem.

No need to take anyting special to the HIlton chef. I am just so happy to hear they have a gluten-free pantry and are gluten-free aware. Woo Hoo! Glad to know that I can get some grilled fish and not have to worry!

Thanks for the info in the stores that have some gluten-free food. If I run out of food ...sometimes I have had to stay later than planned or my biggest fear is that my gluten-free suitcase gets sent to Boston while I go to Kona... I know I can find something!

This trip I will be mostly stuck on property except for the first couple of evenings. We are having dine arounds one evening. Going to Browns, Roys and one other place I can't remember. Depending on which location I take a small group to, I'll pre order. I have had good meals at Four Seasons. Tried out the new Beach House last time I was in town for lunch. Had a wonder Ahi salad there. All gluten-free.

Can't wait to get to the warm weather and to my favorite island!

Thanks Leslie,

The other thing to remember is that you can always call me if you need anything. I"m in the book and my number is usually stuck on the wall in all the chefs offices on the big posters of tropical fruit.

Have not been to Browns in some time. Mauna Lani and Marriott have new executive chefs.

Hi Ken,

Well I am shipping off my gluten-free box of goodies (along with confernence supplies) tomorrow. Looking forward to the tropical weather - it's been so cold and rainy here at home. Have'nt seen the sun in what seems like forever. If you don't end up traveling to Japan and are in the area of the Hilton, give a ring or drop me an email leslie.v.brown@healthnet dot com. Thanks for all the info and support.

    • Hi,  I am very sorry for posting back again. I have visited the consultant today and he said that the TTG is mildly elevated - does this mean it is a positive? The consultant said that as I tested negative for Celiac on three previous times, he thinks something else could be going on so came home worrying even more. The consultant has organised an endoscopy and requested it as a fast track and requested an urgent CT scan.  I was wondering if there is anything that I can do to best prepare for the endoscopy? Does my gluten amount seem to be enough with the 2 slices of bread on a morning? Is it also possible for the TTG to have become mildly elevated because of other conditions?  He mentioned to me that the colonoscopy didn't work really because of how it was clogged up and that the bowel prep didn't work.  I have also noticed that I am experiencing major constipation as well - I will have diarrhoea then it will fluctuate to constipation as well and have an awful gurgling sensation as soon as I eat anything like bread.  Thank you again for everyone on here. It is a wonderful forum. 
    • Hey y'all so I realized my allergy medicine probably affected the results of the IgE allergy blood tests. I tried to start eating gluten again so that I would be able to get the full blood panel from my GI but I can't do it. I ate two meals with gluten yesterday and ended up spending half the night in the bathroom throwing up because my body couldn't digest any of it. Do you know if there are any other ways a GI could diagnose possible celiac without me having to consume it?
    • Hi guys! I'm newly diagnosed (just over a month ago) and before my diagnosis booked a trip to Nepal and Tibet - both of which are bound to be super NOT gluten free and likely not gluten aware.  I know when travelling elsewhere it is recommended to get fresh produce etc from the grocery store and bring your own food. However, grocery store shopping will be next to impossible (in Tibet especially - I will be on a small tour driving through some very remote places!) and though Nepal may be slightly easier, I think it will be a challenge. I am fine to bring my own staples but note this trip is backpacking style and I will have barely enough room for (non-food) necessities so I unfortunately cannot bring an extra suitcase filled with food. I also doubt I will have access to microwaves for the Tibet portion of the trip. Can anyone offer the following advice: - have any of you traveled to these places or somewhere similar and how did you manage? - with limited space what would be the best staples to bring/what will stretch the farthest but take up the least space (I'm thinking a big bag of gluten-free oats? should be easy to get boiling water in most places) - CC issue is gonna be huge but what do you think is the safest bet to eat in this part of the world? Should I just live off steamed rice for the two weeks and take lots of vitamins and hope I can survive with the lack of nutrients? I'll try and add safe fruit and veg at every chance I get obviously.. (Note: fresh veggies are very scarce in Tibet - main diet it dumplings/momos, rice and yak meat - I assume the meat has a high chance of being marinated in unsafe soy sauce) - are there any pills/supplements/natural remedies to help me cope if I do get glutened (which is likely)? I heard of GliadinX - anyone have success with this? Also thinking maybe this would be a good time to invest in a Nima? Thank you so much! Any advice will be really helpful! (Also, please no comments on how I should cancel the trip, how getting glutened once will re-damage my intestines, how I should pack less clothes to fit more safe food etc! I know there is no beating Celiac and all the crappy consequences to eating gluten (I've been addicted to this website since getting diagnosed and have learned so much from you guys!) and that this is probably the worst vacation for a celiac lol. But this trip has been a life dream of mine and we actually booked it in lieu of having a wedding so for this reason I can't (won't) cancel it  I know I'm taking a huge risk and many would disagree with my decision but please positive comments on how I can be best prepared and reduce the risk/reduce the symptoms will be really appreciated!) Thanks Jes  
    • Hello. Been a while since I've been here. Not that I am necessarily better. But you've (the great peeps on this forum !  have been incredibly helpful and I know how to cope better, and I've made positive changes in mine and my daughter's lives. So, as you can see I am writing to ask you about this new EVIL I've just recently discovered is a neruo toxin, used often in frozen sea foods: Sodium triphosphate. For example; I've been eating frozen fish with gluten-free herbs and spices, added veggies for years and also frozen shrimp with hot butter and garlic. YUM! With no *apparent* side effects. I am not sure anymore...A few days ago, I had good serving of shrimp and the usual, butter with fresh garlic and a bowl of green leaf salad with olive oil and Himalayan salt and again garlic lol (a big fan of garlic here ) . Within an hour of eating, my abdomen was so bloated. I looked like I was pregnant and in my second trimester  . Wow! ...Ok, I thought to myself: WHAT did I ingest with gluten or milk, that could be the cause for this?...Everything seemed ok, over the last few days. So I had to read the ingredients of this shrimp. I guess something like instinct told me to do it. And BAM, I came across that thing: Shrimp, water, Sodium triphosphate. I did some searching online and did not find too much except that 'The United States Food and Drug Administration lists STPP as "generally recognized as safe." '  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_triphosphate   THIS means very little to me personally. NOT reassuring at all.  I found something which DID scare me: " Even though deemed safe for ingestion, this is one chemical you want to avoid if you've experienced reactions due to eating frozen fish.  Check for seafood products labeled as "dry" which means they have not been contaminated with the chemical.  Food products labeled as "wet" have usually been treated with sodium tripolyphosphate.

      STPP, is a suspected neurotoxin according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances. Food-grade STPP may cause acute
      skin irritation, and prolonged contact with skin should be avoided. STPP  is listed on the U.S. Environmental 
      Protection Agency’s Federal  Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act as a registered pesticide and  it is also registered as an air contaminant under California’s  Occupational and Safety Health Act. The material safety data sheet lists STPP as toxic to the lungs with prolonged exposure having the potential to produce organ damage.  This neuro toxin also has the ability to cause internal inflammation from those suffering from autoimmune diseases.  Inflammation leads to painful flare-ups."   From this site: http://www.yourfibrosupport.com/fibro-relief-blog/side-effects-of-frozen-seafoodtreated-withsodium-tripolyphosphate It seems that there is one more evil to avoid. It's very hard to eat healthy, when you are on disability. It really is upsetting that even frozen fish which some of them I actually CAN afford, now are off the menu. The list just keeps getting smaller. I would like to point out that I have Candida, so it also means I can't eat things like Lentils or beans and the other gluten-free grains by the bucketfuls. I need to maintain a Paleo type diet. So, that's not cheap. We always have a lot of eggs at home and tuna and what meat I can afford, what is on sale, etc.   Been considering looking into free range meats and so on but that's not cheap. So, if I go that route, I'd have to split it with a person or two and probably buy a large freezer. Oh god. Just thinking aloud here...   I'd really appreciate any and all comments and suggestions.  Thanks very much for being so kind, L.
