Work dinners, wedding or a special birthday dinner can be tricky for a celiac or gluten intolerant person. If you are not the person organising the function, it can be especially hard and you may be a little hesitant in asking for a gluten free meal.

Most catering organisations can easily cater for the gluten free diet as long as prior notice is given. It is much easier to organise this in advance than at the last minute. So do not feel embarrassed or think “it is too much trouble”. Speak up – let the person organising the function know as soon as possible and you can then attend the function without worrying.

Ensure on any RSVP you write down on the RSVP that a “gluten free” meal is required.
