Hi guys,

I'm a chef that cooks gluten-free dishes from starters to desserts.

I'm not celiac myself but wanted to ask a question.

What is the one dish you miss because of being a celiac? It can be anything!

I ask this because I love cooking gluten-free dishes: sticky toffee puddings, raviolis bread and butter pudding, fresh pasta, fresh breads and so on.

But what I really want is your feedback instead of me guessing.

Thank you for your feedback,

Scott

I can't pick just one thing...

a really good pizza crust would be nice

a soft, non crumbly bun for a good burger

egg pasta

ravioli, manicotti

egg rolls..not rice paper rolls

and the holy grail..really good bread! :D

I'm not a chef but teach culinary classes and am obsessed with cooking and food. :D I can make most things gluten-free very well except for the following:

- buttery flaky croissants

- fabulous ciabatta with good chew

- phyllo and puff pastry (I miss making Beef Wellington, Steak and Ale Pie) but I do adapt

- soft puffy yeast doughnuts - I really dislike cake doughnuts

- very good chewy pretzels

- wonderful fresh pasta - my gluten-free homemade is pretty decent and to remedy lack of flavour I incorporate fresh herbs betweeen layers, spinach, butternut squash and so on.

- English muffins - have tried a few gluten-free commercial brands such as Kinnickinnik and they are deplorable!

- I can make a pretty mean pizza crust but really miss the wood-fired crusts in Europe. However, as we do have a wood-fired oven at our house in Croatia we are going to be doing a lot of practicing! Can't wait.

Currently I am perfecting buttermilk biscuits and scones.

Like you, I enjoy making Sticky Toffee Pudding and so on. I find it very easy to make gluten-free focaccia, cakes, cookies, squares, brownies and thankfully some of my favourite desserts such as creme brulee, panna cotta, semifreddo and pavlova and dacquoise are naturally gluten free.

I am a pretty picky scratch cook and tend to be a bit of a perfectionist in the kitchen. When I make fresh pasta most people are all over it; however, I cannot be satisfied until it is perfect in my mind. :)

The above three would be top on my list. I'll probably never be able to have even gluten-free versions however as croissants and puff pastry depend on layers of butter and I cannot have dairy or soy. Earth Balance soy free dairy free spread is good but it doesn't chill to the extent that butter does.

Also if anyone can make a gluten-free Triscuit or Shredded wheat they are a genius. One of the few processed things I miss--mainly for the texture is Triscuits. I've looked and have not found even any regular recipes for duplicating Triscuits, let alone gluten free ones.

I know what you mean! Triscuits have that pleasant textured crunch that is unique and goes so well with so many yummy things. Thanks a lot for bringing it up! Kidding. :lol:

CheezIts. I found some crackers that were not entirely unlike CheezIts. They had about the right texture but were lacking that disgustingly wonderful orange fake cheesy flavor!

Well, you're in luck! gluten-free mozzarella sticks and onion rings are easy to make and just as delicious. I know what you mean about soft pretzels, potstickers and fried chicken, though. Fried chicken can still be nearly as good, though.

Have you tried millet and buckwheat pasta combination? I cannot recall the brand name but it is the best gluten-free pasta I have tried by far. Vastly superior to icky corn and rice pasta. And I am extremely picky about food. Wait a minute - it is called King Soba and comes in a few flavours. Expensive but worth it. It has a nice texture and flavour.

i know :):D . But being a spousal caregiver living on a fixed income, i don't always have the time, energy, or means to do things like this. And the times that I attempted onion rings or fried chicken pre- gluten-free didn't come out too well. Plus, the OP was a chef asking for ideas of things to make gluten-free in a restruant- type setting, i was also thinking of things I miss being able to have the option of getting on the few times I am able to go out to eat. :D

Here's another one--- chicken (or other flavor) pot pie.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try them. My attempts to bake (and I LOVE to bake - was a home ec major) have had dismal results. Not only do I have to be gluten free, but also casein and egg free. The texture of my baked goods, so far, leaves a lot to be desired. But, I'll keep trying. Thanks, again. :D

So sorry - I am so passionate about food and cooking and at times that shows TOO much! :huh: I need to reign myself in once in awhile... :lol:

I miss Subway !

I have to totally agree with this.

Yeast raised rolls is one of the things I am still having trouble making gluten free. Most of my other favorites have have been able to convert to gluten free.

I can't remember if the items/ recipes I suggested are both casein and egg free-- I'd have to look. But if they are, or can be adapted to be, they should work for you. I, too have struggled with gluten-free baking (and I don't have the limitations you do), and the cornbread i've made is one of the few things that has seemed to turn out well!

anything 'mexican' from a fast food place or restraunt-- taco salads, empanadas, chimichangas, enchilada's, burritos, churros. (I had to take a blind friend thru the drive thru at Taco Time today, can you tell?)

also, french bread. elephant ears. funnel cakes. (helk, twinkies, too! :)). ice cream sandwhiches. balklava...

I miss so much, but most are things I never ate in huge quantities anyhow. I think it's just that I can't have them anymore that makes me want them so badly.

Subway (tuna hoagie... loved their bread)

A Burger King bacon double cheeseburger

McDonald's Big Mac and their Sausage Egg McMuffin

REAL french bread

REAL chocolate chip cookies made from the recipe on the back of Nestles morsels

My homemade challah bread

Real, regular beer

I baked chocolate chip cookies for 38 years before having to be gluten-free and the taste is so imprinted on my brain that no gluten-free recipe has remotely measured up. It's just not the same so I don't eat them anymore (sniff).

I miss puff pastry. I've seen a few gluten-free versions, but holy cow, is it labor intensive. I miss phyllo dough. I used to love to bake. Not so much anymore.

Oh, man, yes. And churros and profiteroles.

Salted caramel tart with shortbread crust. I can make it gluten-free decently but not perfectly.

Tarte Tatin.

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
