Christmas Dinner Home or Away
If you’re lucky enough to have someone else cook your Christmas dinner, a chat with your host before the big day will ensure things run smoothly.
If you are cook for the day; preparing a gluten free meal for the entire party is the easiest solution.
- Keep it Simple: Explain to your host how small tweaks can make the meal gluten free for everyone. Ensure the cook understands cross contamination and offer to arrive early to help with preparations.
- Play Your Part: Propose bringing trimmings yourself – gluten free stuffing, gravy, dessert
- Get Stuffed: Ask that the turkey isn’t pre-stuffed to avoid cross-contamination
- Thank You: Bring your favourite gluten free chocolates as a thank you –if they are passed around after dinner you can join in.
Little Ones: Remind family and friends that not all chocolate is gluten free before they buy a treat for your coeliac child. There are some great coeliac friendly selection boxes, chocolate coins and other treats on the market. Check Coeliac Society Christmas Goody List.
