A recent gluten-free dinner party dish: Chicken with Caramelized Onion and Cardamom Rice.
Over the past several years, gluten has become something of a hot-button topic as the number of people with intolerances, allergies, and celiac disease has sharply increased. I have more than a few friends who have been diagnosed with celiac disease, and plenty of others who steer clear of gluten for health or tummy reasons. As someone who is generally geeky about food and nutrition, I’ve been following the trend and reading everything I can on it—I especially like this thoughtful piece from the New York Times.
I myself have zero issues with gluten, but I’m a pro at cooking for friends with allergies—in large part because I have a standing monthly dinner party with three good friends, including one with celiac disease. We try different recipes almost every time (with the exception of this olive oil cake, which makes an appearance anytime Meyer lemons are in season). Because of that, I’ve amassed quite the repertoire of recipes and ingredients. Here are some of my favorite tips, resources, and ingredients—they make it easy to cut out the gluten without sacrificing anything.
