Appetite for Awareness: Restaurants and Chef Bios
It is only one month until the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness Appetite for Awareness event. I am more than excited to attend this event in Philadelphia on October 24th. Not only will I hopefully get to meet some fellow bloggers, like Mike from Gluten-Free Philly, but I will actually get to participate as a member of the media! This means lots of photos, restaurant reviews, and product reviews in early November here on Gluten-Free Fun.

The NFCA does a great write-up of participating chefs and restaurants, so please visit their site today. Below is a summary of who is signed up to date.

My experience with many of the listed restaurants is that when you actually go to the restaurant the hostess/host/waiters know nothing about Celiac or GF foods. Then they go to the Chef (maybe Latino?) who tells me that he can prepare any dish GF! When I question him a little more and I ask if they use MSG, Soy Sauce, gravy thickener, etc. they prove to me they do not know anything about GF cooking. SO WHY ARE THEY LISTED AS PLACES TO EAT GF? Every time I eat and get sick I continue to destroy my small intestine and more important my immune system. Most Celiacs never get their Immune Globulins checked (blood tests) and therefore do not realize that they are immune compromised and will eventually get cancer, lymphoma, viral diseases, etc. Figures from the French prove that most Celiacs do not live past 65 years old because they die from lack of immune factors and their deaths are attributed to pneumonia, cancer, etc. There is a great lack of info among the medical professions about the true ravages of Celiac. We need to educate the MD's and the restuarant owners because the situation today ia not very good.

Been to Zahav - not bad! They have an celiac/gf menu (just ask for it). Portions are pretty small...so order more than you think you'll eat.
