Eating out with celiac disease can be an adventure in fear and trepidation. And many restaurants don’t make it any easier. Is this section, I cover who does it right, who does it wrong and everything in between.

Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
