Last week I was fortunate enough to join friends and family as we all watched a talented young woman, who is very close to my heart, graduate from the 8th grade. After the ceremony the young graduate got to pick the place where we all would eat a celebratory dinner. Since her mother and grandfather are both Celiacs she picked someplace that she liked and also had a gluten free menu. So she chose Outback Steakhouse.
This restaurant was not only aware of gluten free food it had a full GF menu. The menu was made with the assistance of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG). Each item is marked with a “GF”. If the item is not fully GF a note is provided to tell you which item to avoid or request to not be included with your order. As a result everyone, on a gluten free diet or not, got to celebrate, talk, joke and eat without anyone feeling left out. To learn more about Outback Steakhouse’s menu and to view a sample menu go to www.outback.com. To all the graduates no matter the grade, Congratulations!
