Last week's episode of "Chopped" had the gluten free chef and consultant Sunshine Best as a contestant. Although she was "chopped" in the first round it was still good exposure for Celiac. She even used tapioca flour!

Is that like some kind of cooking game show? We refuse to pay the outlandish price for cable around here, so we don't watch t.v. :huh:

We had a program here (I might have posted about this before, if so, sorry) called New Zealand's best Home Cook, and the winning contestant throughout the series baked mostly gluten free, and won the final with two gluten free cakes, a pear upside down cake, and a chocolate cake. Yeah for gluten free!

I'll be honest - while I was thrilled to see someone with celiac on the show, by the middle of the first round I was so annoyed I wanted to toss the remote at the tv!

Seriously? Decide to dredge your item with wheat flour to prove you "know your flavors" - thereby showing you CAN'T TASTE WHAT YOU ARE MAKING.... kinda a cardinal sin in the cooking world. (FIL is a professional chef, I've done my share of catering...) WHY? WHY? She was so gung-ho to show the world that gluten free cooking is tasty... and she couldn't even make the main appetizer gluten free. What's the point than? Why even MENTION the whole celiac issue if you aren't going to highlight it in your cooking?

Sorry. Sorry. Had a bit of a rant during the show, apparently I didn't get it all out of my system! lol.

(If you think the above is bad, you should have heard me pitching a fit when the Top Chef Master's guys had to deal with a gluten free, soy free, dairy free vegetarian meal. I hope I never run into that twit Michael Curiello who spent his time whining about how much he hated having to deal with the challenge... I may not be able to resist smacking him upside the head!)

I had posted this earlier and did it right after the show aired. It didn't get any responces-therefore it was off the board!

Magpie, I was ranting too! REGULAR FLOUR-what was that?! Two of her opponents used gluten-free items. One dregged in corn flour, the other sauted. Okay, the corn flour wasn't certified gluten-free but, she still could have sauted! My 13 yr. old non-gluten-free son was also incredulous.

I also thought Art Smith gave up on the other TC Master's challenge with his use of store-bought rice milk ice cream for dessert. Micheal Chierello wasn't the only one complaining!

Yeah, Art seems like a nice enough guy... but I was left wondering just how did Zoey D (the actress they catered for) felt after SEEING how he was yelping about he KNEW it was going to be something crappy like that to deal with. Somehow, I doubt she will ever darken his door after watching the tape.

Frankly, the only chef there I'd happily go to the restaurant was Rick Bayless who just seemed to be just as happy to cook for her as anyone else on the planet.

Nice to know I wasn't the only one rolling my eyes and kvetching at the screen. (I think I scared my cats that night!)

    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.  
    • A gluten free multi won't hurt but it would be better to call your doctor and get them to give you a lab slip for a vitamin and mineral panel. At the least get your iron levels checked before you supplement as that can be toxic over time in large doses.  May not be the case for you but when I went gluten free I started eating a lot more soy. Turns out I am sensitive to it and it gives me issues similiar to yours. Some of us do have issues with other foods. Dairy, soy and corn are pretty common. If you consume any you could try eliminating them and see if things improve. If when you add them back into your diet your symptoms return then drop them again until you have been very well healed.
