When you’re invited to a party, gluten-free eaters have to be extra-careful. If your host is willing to accommodate your special dietary needs, she may appreciate this list of suggestions.
- Try to leave croutons out of your salads.
- Wheat-based crackers will leave crumbs that contaminate dips, even if the guest himself doesn’t eat a cracker.
- If soup is served, set aside a portion of uncontaminated soup before adding any noodles.
- If you put butter or preserves on the table, open a new stick or bottle and let the celiac guest take some before other guests contaminate it with bread crumbs from their knives.
