If you haven’t had a chance to read the latest happenings in the Celiac community, grab a cup of coffee or tea and settle in. This so-called “chef” out of Denver, has basically admitted to poisoning Celiacs on his Facebook page. The posts have now been removed, probably at the direction of his attorney after the onslaught of messages he was probably receiving from the Celiac & gluten-free community. You can read about them here, though. Here are a couple of his rants from his page:
"May god help the Liberal hippie idiot whos going to ask for gluten free pasta this weekend."
"Gluten free is bullXXX!! Flour and bread have been a staple of life for thousands, THOUSANDS of years. People who claim to be gluten intolorent dont realize that its all in there disturbed liitle heads. People ask me for gluten free pasta in my restaurant all the time, I tell em sure, Then I serve serve em our pasta, Which I make from scratch with high gluten flour. And you know what? nothing, NOTHING! ever happens! People leave talking about how good they feel gluten free and guess what, They just had a full dose! Idiots!"
Seriously? You are knowingly feeding people with Celiac Disease gluten? What is wrong with you? I sure you wouldn’t find this as amusing if someone were poisoning you.
I particularly like this open letter/response by Injera & Chocolate Gravy.
I guess my Wednesday wasn’t so “wordless” after all.
