How to Set a Gluten Free Table

Gluten Free Entertaining around the holiday’s may be problematic for friends/family who aren’t used to to accommodating those on gluten free diets.  Here are 5 easy steps to send them:

  1. Go 1st: Be the first to make your plate. You”ll lessen the chances of someone accidentally dropping glutenous crumbs into your gluten free meal.
  2. Separate gluten free foods from glutenous foods: Designate a separate glutenous and gluten free area so gluten cross-contamination doesn’t accidentally occur.
  3. Bring your own gluten free food and drinks:  It’s normal for a host to be weary about cooking a gluten free meal because of the risk of gluten cross-contamination.  Nobody wants to sicken a guest. Feel free to cook & bring your own gluten free foods. If you choose to share your dish with others, label it gluten free to remind others of your gluten restrictions.
  4. Wave off contaminates by flagging them: Mark your gluten free spreads & dips gluten free so others don’t accidentally dip their wheat cracker into your gluten free dip and contaminate the entire dish.
  5. Tag your tools: Serving utensils should be tagged gluten free so others don’t accidentally place a glutenous utensil in your gluten free dish and contaminate it.

We’ve created an infographic to share with your friends and family.  Use the social icons below to spread it around so no one suffers from gluten cross-contamination this holiday season!
