This is about hunt for the next new restaurant that offers ever more options for an adventurous wheatless wanderer. In this spirit, I have decided to report back on my experiences with different restaurants and recipes deemed gluten free, near and far. After all, being gluten free is becoming more common, with restaurants offering more options geared toward a wheat-less state.
I am a self professed foodie, who developed wanderlust before I could speak. I discovered after college while Spain, that wheat and I had a beef, so we parted ways. I was left wondering,
Where do I go to eat?
How do I make my favorite foods gluten free?
Why does everything have wheat in it?
At the time, there weren’t many answer. There were cook books and substitutions, but most foods felt like cardboard in my mouth. People said I would get used to the texture, but I wondered:
Is there was a way to change how dense the food was?
Or if there were places that offered gluten free food?
Thankfully the answer to both of these questions was yes. Now, I seek to explore, experiment, travel and share the experiences I have and will have with the wheat-less state.
Facts of the Wheatless Wanderer:
I am a mid-twenty something, living in Chicago. A die-hard Black Hawks fan, who grow up in the suburbs just outside of the city. A wonderful city, that rivals New York in terms of food. I have been cooking since I was old enough to hold a spoon over a simmering pot of tomato sauce and perhaps this is the birth place of this undertaking. I am graduate from Purdue University and spent three years living in Alaska, among other interesting places. I love dogs, travel, fashion, photography, reading and writing.
