Eating out in a restaurant is a  t r e a t  - a way to mark special occasions .....


catch up with friends  

                              enjoy the company of family or work colleagues


or a stranger on a first date. 



There are too many variables out of our control (and often out of a restaurant's control

to make dining out Off Gluten™ a sure thing. 


The idea behind Off Gluten™ is to start alleviating some of the key problems in restaurants.


Problem:    Such a pain in the @ss to order GF meals in restaurants


Solution:    Design custom Off Gluten™ menus for restaurants based on their existing menu


Problem:    Cross contamination with gluten between kitchen and table


Solution:    Provide custom cross contamination avoidance checklists for kitchens,

                 and have all Off Gluten™ menus include the following statement so that

                 "we the eater" don't have to urge the server to remind the kitchen of the following ...







​Problem:    Regular turnover in restaurant serving staff and a huge variance in understanding

                  of what gluten is and what foods contain it


Solution:​    Educating restaurant staff on the dreaded "G" word via Off Gluten™ staff training
