    Hmmm…..I’m wondering if he gave you any recipes?

    That looks like a wonderful time.

      Even if he did, I couldn’t replicate. I’m so lame in the kitchen.

      He did indeed keep me safe. He went from knowing nothing about gluten to knowing pretty much everything in a short 3 weeks.

        Most classically trained “cook from scratch” chefs….are very willing and eager to please the people they are feeding. It’s their passion!!

        I have a best friend who is a chef and she says “This isn’t rocket science and anyone should be able to cook GF for you guys!”

        Don’t you love her.? yeah, me too! LOL
        She cooks for me frequently and there is never a problem.

        I am so glad you are feeling well after your trip. YAAAY!!!!

    Great photo essay. :) Looks like it was a fun time! Is 85 cups of coffee really enough to sustain all that hard vacationing work, though?

      If it wasn’t for the incessant bathroom trips, I would’ve gone for 86. Maybe next year ;)

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos! It’s wonderful to read about someone having a successful gluten free (and stress free) vaca! For me, it’s the planning ahead that does it… I had a completely GF and stress free week at Beaches Turks and Caicos (the head chef met with me the first evening and personally cooked for my family and was wonderful!) and I was able to successfully travel from the US to Budapest with some planning ahead. I have a friend there who shopped for my GF food in advance and made sure it was in my hotel room when we arrived. I had found an organic shop in Budapest ahead of time and actually became friendly with the owner through email. He was so lovely that when my friend picked up the food for me, he would not even take the money. It’s these kinds of experiences that have made me feel not so alone in my disease. People can be wonderful if you just open yourself up to them. After being in a foreign country and not once being glutened, I’m not afraid to travel anywhere anymore. By the way, LOVE this blog. Happy New Year! Mary

    I don’t get it. Why is your stomach causing so much pain on a gluten free diet?

      3 full meals per day. Some decadent dishes. Throw in some extra booze. My insides can’t tolerate it. Nothing to do with the gluten. My guts are a sensitive mess.

    Could you share the contact information for renting that home as well as the information for the chef. My husband has Celiacs, dermatitis herpetiformis and iodine is a trigger for the DH.
