How to Host Gluten-Free Guests
If you are new to having gluten free guests then make sure you are asking your guests lots of questions. If your guests have an allergy or celiac there are a lot of precautions that need to take place in order for them to eat safely. Cross contact can cause someone will celiac to be sick for weeks and I know that no one wants to make their guests sick.
Ask your gluten free guests to make some of the dishes that they would like to have. If you are making the gluten free dishes you must make sure that all of your cooking utensils, pots, pans and services are disinfected and cleaned well. Non-stick pans are tricky, so ask your guest what they are comfortable with. Here is an article with some tips of cleaning your kitchen items safely.
Make sure everything is labeled well and have a seperate gluten free food serving section away from the gluten. This will avoid accidents such as using a contaminated spoon in the gluten free stuffing.
Buy premade store items that are certified gluten free when you can. This assures safety and makes it easier on you. Buying the dinner rolls, pie and stuffing mix will make things much easier if you are new to cooking and baking gluten free.
How to Have an Easy Gluten-Free Thanksgiving
Speak up! Tell your guests or your host your concerns and make sure they know your comfort zone. Don’t be offended if your gluten free guests are scared to eat something made by someone who they may not trust.
Make dishes ahead of time and don’t over cook. The first few years I would make everything myself and it would stress me out! Plus, we don’t need all that food. After explaining things to other family members, I can rely on one to make a safe turkey and another to make a few safe sides.
Now, I make our pie 2 days ahead, prep sweet potatoes and stuffing the day before and make mashed potatoes and a veggie the day of. Typically I will buy some rolls from the grocery store and premade pie shells if I am feeling overwhelmed. I have also bought our pie from a local gluten free bakery before too.
