How Can I Make Sure My Food Is Safe for Gluten-Free Guests?

If you’re serving gluten-free guests an Easter meal, it’s important to take extra precautions to avoid cross-contamination. Even a gluten-free dish could be unsafe for your guests with Celiac disease if it mixes with gluten ingredients.

Here are some tips to help ensure your food is safe for gluten-free guests (or guests with other food allergies) on this special occasion:

  • Clean surfaces as you go. A clean kitchen will help you stay organized and less stressed, but it will also prevent ingredients from cross-contaminating.
  • Bake in advance. If you’re baking gluten-containing Easter dessert or side dishes, bake those recipes a day or two in advance, and then clean thoroughly afterward.
  • Use separate serving spoons/trays. Serve gluten-free dishes on their own trays or in their own bowls. Use dedicated serving spoons or forks for those items, and make sure they don’t get used to serve gluten dishes.
