MOM, IS IT GLUTEN-FREE?
As we came out of Athens’ Metro, it seemed everybody walking across the square was holding a “tyropita” (cheese pocket) from one of the many vendor carts. Hot, fresh, delicious…then my son said those dreaded words: “is that gluten-free?”
My son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when he was four. I knew that our house would need to be free of conventional breads, flours and other forms of gluten, and that he would face challenges finding a good meal at a restaurant when the family was out. But I also believed many of our family favorites and traditional Greek recipes would be off- limits to him – forever.
After a few years, we were thankful that knowledge about gluten-free foods was growing and that the choices were better than they’d ever been, but we hadn’t found truly crave-able and premium food – or any of the ethnic varieties that I grew up enjoying. And, because my son’s sensitivities were intense, the risk of cross-contamination still scared me.
That’s when I started developing gluten-free versions of my favorite family recipes. I’ll never forget my son’s response: “simply awesome!” Now, the standard was set, and I set off on a mission to deliver the world’s best-tasting, highest-quality gluten-free products.
Today, we’ve succeeded in shattering the preconceived notions of how gluten-free food should taste, with a full-range of entrees, pizzas, pastas, baked goods, and desserts. And others agree: Our products are recipients of the 2017, 2016, 2014, and 2013 National Restaurant Association FABI Award.
IS IT SAFE?
The 2016 FABI for our Individual Quick-Bake Deep Dish Pizza is an example of our commitment to safety. This delectable pizza is wrapped in our innovative, ovenable bag straight from our certified gluten free facility. The operator simply bakes the wrapped pizza in the bag without the fear of cross-contamination. The bag is breathable and delivers a crust with our signature, buttery, texture.
