Gluten Free cooking doesn’t have to be complicated, but it is often different than cooking with traditional ingredients. Here are a few tips learned along the way to support your kitchen practice. Keep checking back, as our site grows we will be adding more tips on a regular basis.
And if you ever have any questions about your gluten free kitchen or need some help, please contact us, we would love to hear from you.
If you are in a dedicated gluten free kitchen you have less to worry about, but you will still need a few key items:
- Utensil Set
Click on the links and you will see that, by color-coding your gluten free kitchen items, you have a greater chance that none of your glutinophile friends or family members will touch your cool purple gluten free kitchen stuff. Tell them to “Back off my awesome purple gadgets!!!” Or use any color you like, but we love “Code Purple” because it really sends a message and it is the official color of gluten free in commercial kitchens .
If you are in a shared kitchen with gluten based cooking, you will need an entirely separate set of tools and lots of aluminum foil / saran wrap to use on the counters. Airborne issues with gluten can cause lots of problems. We highly recommend refraining from baking with gluten based flours in a shared gluten / gluten free kitchen. Remember: Labeling is essential in a shared kitchen and dedicated shelves should be used and maintained regularly. Again, with a bright “Code Purple” color or label on your kitchen gadgets and food items you have a much better chance of keeping all of your stuff gluten free.
