We spent last weekend in downstate Delaware for a youth baseball tournament and spotted a number of new gluten-free-friendly restaurants. Gary's Dewey Beach Grill (2000 Coastal Hwy. - Suite 105, 302-227-8519) offers gluten-free crab cakes. The restaurant is open on the weekends through the fall.
The small plates/tapas menu at 14 Global in Bethany Beach (14 N. Pennsylvania Ave., 302-616-1035) notes gluten-free options like pan-seared snapper, drunken PEI mussels and crispy pork belly. New Planet Pale Ale is usually available from the bar. During the fall season, the restaurant offers dinner service on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Krusteaz has introduced its first line of gluten-free products, which all bear the Whole Grains Council's Whole Grain Stamp, guaranteeing a half serving of whole grains per serving. Available at most grocery chains nationwide, the line includes:
- Gluten-Free Buttermilk Pancake Mix, featuring real sweet cream buttermilk
- Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin Mix, including a can of real wild blueberries
- Gluten-Free Honey Cornbread Mix, made with real honey
- Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, combining rich, fudge-like texture with loads of chocolate chips
The CHOP Celiac Support Group will be hosting a gluten-free cookie exchange and cake decorating on Nov. 2 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Voorhees Specialty Care Center (1012 Laurel Oak Rd.). Children of all ages are welcome to attend this free event. Each family should bring cookies and a recipe to share. RSVP by Oct. 29 by emailing the Center.
Have a great weekend!
