Preparing for Gluten-Free Holiday Entertaining

If you’re preparing gluten-free food for the first time, be sure that your kitchen is prepped for safe gluten-free cooking.  Click here to learn more about avoiding cross contamination in the kitchen.

Once the kitchen is prepped, it’s important to look at the arrangement of the food being served.  If the food is laid out buffet or cocktail style, be sure to separate the food that is gluten-free from the rest of the food being served.  This helps guarantee that serving utensils don’t get switched or that crumbs from something containing gluten doesn’t get dropped into a gluten-free dish. 

Also, it’s helpful for guests if food is clearly labeled.  I love these bamboo gluten-free markers from Amazon:
