Tips for Hosting A Gluten Free Meal
If you’re new to hosting gluten-free family or friends and you don’t have a gluten-free kitchen it’s always a good idea to check in on their comfort level with the meal.
People with celiac can be very sensitive to the slightest cross-contamination in a regular kitchen, even if you are trying super hard to make safe meals.
Don’t be offended if your guests feel more comfortable bringing their own dishes or plate to eat during the holidays. It’s an uncomfortable spot to be in bringing your own food – believe me, they don’t want to have to do this, but sometimes need to in order to be able to visit with family without being nervous of the possibility of being sick for days after. Some people with celiac are not as sensitive and may be more open to having family prepare safe meals for them. Just ask first.
It may be a nice gesture to provide foods labeled certified gluten-free if you find anything labeled as such to add to the meal. Guests will feel comfortable with this certification knowing it’s a safe food for them to enjoy.
