    Does anyone have any glutten free recipes they'd like to share, or is there a thread with this info? I have a host interested in glutten free recipes.

    Thanks!

    type in gluten under the search tab and it will pop up a lot of threads....

    Just a couple of recipes are the mock lem. meringue cake (with gluten free mix) & the mexican chk lasagna. Just beware if you are using your own stoneware.... if it is an allergy to gluten versus a diet choice, the stones will absorb the gluten and cause a reaction.

    good luck!

    As Charity said, be VERY careful, it's not necesarilly just about the recipe (you can find GF cake mix, pizza crust, etc. etc.) but also about what it's cooked in. You can't cook in stoneware or bakeware that has had gluten products cooked in it before as they will absorb the gluten. The only things that are ok to use are stainless steel and glass, so either cook with these or use the host's stoneware, etc.

    Personally, I have had a few GF hosts and I find the three cheese garden pizza is very easy to make GF when you get GF pizza dough, just make sure you have a new stone or a stone that has never been cooked with regular dough. GL!

    Be careful if you make the lemon dessert. Most Cool whip and pudding products are not gluten free if you have a serious Celiac. They may not list wheat in the ingredients but unless they say "gluten free" there is always a chance of cross contamination at the factory. My dad's wife is sensitive enough she can't do products that aren't listed as gluten free.

    A lot of processed foods contain hidden gluten. Also, you need to make sure that it says "gluten free" and not just "wheat free". Many foods besides wheat contain gluten. You can find gluten free pasta (I like the quinoa versions) which would allow you to make the Penne al Fresco. If you want a desert item it's probably easiest to stick with a prepackaged gluten-free mix, Bob's Red Mill makes a good range. If you bake in metal or glass you should be fine. Or you could go with something naturally gluten free, like polenta toast with fresh mozzarella and bruschetta and fruit salad (if you want to show extra tools).

    Thank you all-I am new to this and am learning.

    So-if I cook something glutten free on the host's stoneware, which she has already cooked glutten free food on, it's ok?

    Thanks,

    Thanks! We may do the Harvest Chicken Salad.

    When it comes to serving gluten free items, is it ok to serve them on one of my platters or bowls, or does the bowl need to be one that only gluten free food has been on? Thanks, and please forgive me if this is a "stupid" question. The host is posting this show on her moms of multiples website, saying that it will be a gluten free PC show. I'm a bit nervous-even after almost 8 years in the business, but am glad for the opportunities to be always learning and doing shows that appeal to our customers.

    Suzy, you are totally asking all the right questions!!! Most people know nothing about this, so don't feel bad. I have four close friends who are celiac's, so I know quite a bit.

    Generally, serving is ok, just make sure that no gluten items have touched the serving pieces directly before serving the salad or during the serving of the salad. Once something gluten touches it, there's no going back!

    Thanks-so if I use the Collapsible Serving Bow-clean from my dishwasher-for serving the Harvest Chicken Salad-that would be ok?

    PS I've asked the host to email me some website so I can continue to learn about gluten free:)

    Yes, you should be fine. And if you wanted to use, say, the bamboo salad tongs or serving pieces that the host has, you should be fine :)

    Good luck, and kudos to you for doing the research and learning all about it!
