I just came across this interesting resource for us celiacs. It’s a searchable database of restaurants around the country who have participated in a Celiac Awareness program run by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. I just searched Chicago and there are only a few restaurants listed. To make this resource really shine, I think we should band together and whenever we find a restaurant with a gluten-free menu, suggest that they visit this site and get their restaurant listed!

As soon as I read this article in the NYTimes about a vegan publication using stock images that were decidedly NOT vegan, I immediately remembered several Living Without bread recipes that had accompanying images that I was sure were real bread. I am a pretty confident cook and I know a gluten-based bread when I see one. These images were definitely NOT gluten-free bread. And lookie here:

And Getty Images’ “Basket of Bagels”. Real bagels. Gluteny bagels. Jerks.

Clearly, this is par for the course in publishing. Reader beware.
