I'm not understanding this puréed fish thing. This isn't Burger King have it your way. I was brought up in environments where the integrity of the composed dish and the integrity of the ingredient is paramount. I say recognize gluten, shellfish and nut allergies.... Otherwise GTFOH!! Haha.

Location: USA... mostly.
EMALSKY <> One does not eat pureed Dover Sole by choice; it is obviously an age issue. The ability to masticate illudes some in their senior years.

JACK <> Even with heirloom strains, if the berries are stored utilizing the same silo methodology, gluten sensitivity will still rear it's head. I agree the GMO and DNA mutations have created a new food, but silo contamination would still be a mass production issue.

It might help if people started admitting that they were just following a trend in paranoia, and had no actual celiac symptoms. Wheat Belly, thanks for your contribution to society.....

I've trained my front staff to actually ask if someone has celiac, with the "assumed" intention of "just making sure, and wanting to let them know that there's always a risk".
If they don't have a real issue with gluten, well, yeah....

Either way, people should know better than to ask for ridiculous crap to be gluten-free.
In those instances, I have to fight not to walk out onto the floor and ask them to leave, because when you ask for gluten-free bread, (and I know its a real thing, but cmon, how many restaurants actually carry it) that just irks me.
