A Gluten-Free Holiday Menu

December 18, 2012

The holidays are a time for inclusion. They're for celebration, for get-togethers, for showing you care. So, if you'll be welcoming gluten-free guests at your dinner table this month, you'll want a celebratory meal that won't make them feel slighted or anxious.

The good news is this: you can still have dessert. And hors d'oeuvres. And even a gratin! A gluten-free dinner doesn't require shopping for strange ingredients or denying your other guests. We've put together a holiday menu of dishes that happen to be both gluten-free and worthy of a dinner party. It's sure to please everyone at your table, regardless of their relationship with wheat. We've even doubled up on dessert -- it is December, after all.

No bread basket? No problem.
