eat, drink + be merry, sans the gluten
→In food news we missed (and that dovetails nicely into our pre-meditated theme of gluten-free cooking), Philadelphia was recently dubbed, “World’s Most Celiac-Friendly Destination”—an impressive honor for a city renown for its indulgence in beer, soft pretzels, pasta, donuts…
Here’s the scoop. And, if you’re looking for a fix, check out Brûlée Bakery‘s chocolate peanut-butter brownies. You’ll have a hard time buying that they’re gluten-free.
And while we’re on the subject, here are a few notable gluten-free websites (courtesy of @eatDEWwrite‘s about-to-turn-30 and suddenly health-obsessed younger brother) to test out over the weekend. Typically we’re more ecstatic about less commercial looking sites, but since he and his wife have actually made recipes from each of these sites and raved about them, we’re going out on a limb. Besides, not all those pretty pictures result in recipes that taste as good as they look. (Apparently the nom nom app is “worth the money.”)
Of course you can skip all of these completely and just go to Punchfork, which has lots of pretty pictures and curates the best recipes from the best gluten-free sites. The big news is that it was recently acquired by Pinterest. We’re impressed and pretty much expect that all the recipes on this site are going to be delicious, gorgeous and wildly popular with the masses. #winning. (Not us, Jeff Miller, Punchfork’s CEO.)
And though you didn’t ask, here’s a couple of resources to catch you up on gluten-free brew:
