I have a severe allergy to gluten.

I cannot eat ANYTHING made from wheat, oats, rye or barley. This includes breads, pastas, croutons, sauces or soups thickened with these flours or their food starches, beer, processed cheeses, malt or malt flavouring, HVP from these grains, or soy sauce. I can't eat foods that have been deep fried in oil that's been used for other food that's breaded or floured. Some bouillon contains HVP that's not safe for me. Natural and artificial flavours can be a problem.

I CAN eat rice, corn, corn starch, soy, potatoes, meat, poultry, sea food, fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk, butter, most cheeses and wine.

Please be sure that anything made for me is cooked in a separate clean pot or pan, or on an area of the grill that has been cleaned, and that separate utensils are used--I can get quite sick from only traces of gluten.

I am happy to accept your suggestions for a delicious meal that I can eat safely. Please feel free to ask me any questions about this diet if you need to. I thank you for your special attention to my needs.
