Was out with Catherine of AGluten-FreeGuide.com last night at Otto Enoteca.
She's just crazy for crazy for their “Escarole & Sunchoke” salad (it has almonds so I can’t indulge). I had the gluten-free pasta (they use Tinkyada) with a meat sauce that is not on the menu (yeah, that’s how I roll--at least in my dreams. This is one of the few places where I can order at least one dish off-menu and I do every chance I get!)
During the course of conversation, Catherine told me the most interesting news she had heard on the celiac forum boards. Rice Chex is going gluten-free; General mills has taken the plunge. Here a picture of the new Rice Chex box.
Which mainstream company will be next? Bigger question, which mainstream company will put out a gluten-free, organic product without added vitamins (makes me shudder to think what they took and how they took it out in order to replace it but that’s a different post).
Regardless, Gluten-free Rice Chex eaters, rejoice!
