What Do You Miss?

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!

No worries, gilr!!1

some more I thought of-

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.

    • Former lifeguard and competitive swimmer here. There could be some potential issues, but I think it's pretty unlikely. Here's why I think that: 1. The water volume in a standard 25m pool is enormous (hundreds of thousands of liters). Assuming there are people swimming in the pool, any hot spots are likely to get dissipated pretty fast, so you'd have to swallow a lot of water to get a serious gluten hit. 2. By law (at least in Canada), the water inflow and outflow rates must be such that the volume of water that makes up the pool must be replaced every 24 hours in public pools. There are always some dust bunnies, bandaids and whatnot trapped in the corners at the bottom of the pool, but the main volume you're interacting with gets replaced regularly, so no build-up. Public pools are also vacuumed on a regular basis. For cleaning agents, typically on bleach and baking soda are used in my experience. Private pools are another story and there no guarantees. 3. Most public pools prohibit food on deck due to public health regulations and/or wanting to avoid cleaning up messes. This limits potential sources of gluten to personal care products on other people's skin. Considering the volume of a pool, I'm having trouble imagining this resulting in a significant exposure, but I have also swam in packed outdoor pools that taste like sunblock, so who knows. I would definitely worry if people were eating hot dogs or shotgunning beers in the pool though (definitely a thing at backyard pool parties). 4. Pool chlorine can be either tablet based, liquid based or gas based depending on the pool. Either way, it is bleach-based (sometimes literal bleach gets dumped in smaller volume bodies like hot tubs when the chlorine is off). The pool I worked at, which was newer used liquid injection, and I would imagine this is true of most newer facilities (gas is undesirable as it can leak and kill people because it is odourless - some older pools still have this set-up though). Tablets are more common in backyard pools, and it's possible that these might contain gluten in some form (I have no idea and have never checked).  For reference, the concentration of chlorine in a swimming pool should be between 0.5-5 ppm, depending on the pool temperature and your region (lower for colder pools, higher for hot tubs).  So, I guess my opinion would be that a public pool is most likely pretty safe from a gluten perspective. Chlorine (or rather, the volatile gases resulting from the reaction of chlorine with biological waste in the pool) is an irritant though - occupational asthma rates in lifeguards and swimmers is quite high. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. My dad cannot swim anymore because he becomes ill for a week with severe upper respiratory symptoms (open water swimming is ok). I get similar, but less severe symptoms (part of the reason I don't swim anymore, sadly). Not sure what symptoms you experienced, but something to consider. http://www.ncceh.ca/documents/practice-scenario/pool-chlorination-and-closure-guidelines
    • I look back at photos from a few years ago now and can see the inflammation in my face. I spent decades with my body fighting constantly without my really being aware. Freaked me out when I realised! Few things to think about: If up to 1% of pop are celiac, at much as 6% could be NCGS - further reading here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117969-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity-a-resource/ NCGS can present in the same varied ways as celiac - Not just or even primarily gastro related. I get back pain, chest pain, skin problems, eyesight problems, anxiety, depression, balance issues, nerve tremors and twitches etc. etc Try to treat these next months as a special case. Dial your diet back and eat really basic and simple. I lived on omelettes filled with veggies, huge green salads with olive oil and cider vinegar as dressing and a very simple evening meal with maybe some meat and rice. I ate as little processed foods as I possibly could. So try and avoid sauces, anything in a box really.  Your aiming to help your body heal and to reduce the amount of ingredients going in to the basic safest foods. Eat clean and healthy and avoid any possible gluten source. Spend a bit of time learning about hidden sources of gluten too. This thread will help:  https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/   Final point. You may like me eventually have to live life without gluten and without the comfort of a diagnosis that says precisely why. This is not always easy, but what you learn about your body in the next 3 months of this trial could help you to do this. Keep the diary, note your reactions and hopefully when you see the Rheum in 3 months you'll have conducted your own science experiment and have the data you need to make a good decision. Best of luck Matt  
    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • Hey, I am learning also...make sure you are taking a good multi-vitamin...gluten-free of course.  I have had a few "charlie horse" pains in my thighs and am taking an extra B12 tablet...If you have an ALDI grocery store nearby they have lots of gluten-free items snacks and frozen.  Vitamins will help...you are not getting enough nutrients with what you are eating.
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
