Last week one of our guests came to me with a humble question: “By chance, Sylvia, do you know any good nearby gluten free restaurant, for coeliacs?” The request took me by surprise, because we prepare gluten-free meals since the opening of our activity, and in that very same moment I realized that probably we never mentioned nor specified it properly on our web site! Shame on us :-).
In fact several of the dishes on our menu are gluten-free, and our personnel is also trained on avoiding cross-contamination, which is clearly as important as using the proper ingredientes when cooking meals for celiacs. In this case we obviously use gluten free flour for bread, cakes and biscuits and also to make fresh pasta.
What? You want to know my replay to that guest? Well, after apologizing for not having at least a mention on our website (which is now fixed) I arranged to prepare him a great gluten-free dinner. That night he had:
Prawns wrapped in streaky bacon, with rosemary, baked in the oven and served with mashed chickpeas
Pasta with Tuna
Short gluten-free pasta in a vegetables sauce (zucchini, celery, tomatoes) with capers and tuna carpaccio
Crab meat with a splash of cream and topped with cheese, baked in the oven, served with chips and mixed vegetables
made exclusively with fresh mango and sugar
