Celiac in the News, Chick Press

The New York Times!

10 Comments 26 July 2007

Wow! What can I say? I am so happy that unlike the other recent NY Times article that portrayed those with gluten issues as head cases, Jennifer Romolini’s article will hopefully stir up empathy in others as well as help further awareness.

Thanks, Jen!

Oh…and btw…the boy  in the article that I mention "rolling his eyes" is quite the supportive trooper and we had a BIG laugh about that quote.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Danna Korn?  Danna, if you’re reading, please email me.

    We subscribe to the NY Times, the only decent paper in the country, way out here in Tucson. My husband “scooped” you on this article last night. I cozied up in my chair and read it after he handed it to me. Sounds like a GF wonderland!

    I was SO excited to see this yesterday.

    And today, I was told that it was the #1 most emailed article at the NY Times in the past 24 hours.

    Way to go, Celiac Chicks!

    The NYT article coupled with the Mario Batali piece that you have posted made this the best-celiac-news- week ever. Thank you Celiacchicks for having spearheaded the celiac awareness movement in NYC. after that profile of you gals appeared in Time Out, nothing was the same again for the celiac community.

    Diana- Thanks for the “scoop.” 😉
    I might come out for the upcoming conference in Tuscon…hope to meet you!

    Andrea- Thanks!

    Karina- We wish you were here too!

    Shauna- Thanks for that muy interesante factoid. If I wasn’t so burnt out from the exciting day I would have added that to the post!
    BTW- Congrats to you and the chef on your new life together!

    Sezin- Wow! That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to us. Thank you. Interesting that Jen Romolini was an editor at Time Out at the time. She’s always been looking for a way to help inform the public through her writing. Hope to meet you at an NYC event someday!

    This article was emailed to me 15 times! Risoterria is an amazing place, and Peter’s Diner is great too.

    Just wanted to let all the fellow gluten-free girls about my terrible experience with Outback Steakhouse. I was there with my family one Sunday night and I decided to order chicken and rice off of the gluten free menu. So I look on this menu and it says that the rice was not gluten free. I ordered it and didn’t eat the rice. When the waitress came over I double checked with her she said it was gluten free. I didn’t eat it though because I wanted to be safe. Then the manager came over and corrected her and said that it was not gluten free. I asked the manager why they would serve “gluten free chicken” in a bed of not gluten free rice, which to me sounds strange. He got really loud and was telling me that it wasn’t his fault and there’s nothing wrong with the dish. He spoke to my mother very inappropriatly. We ended everything and all I wanted was some chicken. Haha. The waitress, who was so nice, came over with some grilled chicken and a baked potato.
    I know some people rave about their gluten free menu- but I will never go back there again and all of my family that was with my that day, which is about 20 people, will never go either and then made sure they let everyone know about this experience. It could have been the location, I don’t know. I wish restaurants that offer gluten free menus would educate the chefs and managers.

    Kelly, my husband is a sweetie. 🙂 We would love to see you here for the CSA conference. I will be attending as well as helping to man the ROCK table (I am the Tucson chapter co organizer). Did you get ahold of Dana yet?
