A Matter of Taste Take Out

A Matter of Taste Take Out is a gluten free restaurant (unless you order regular bread, which is brought in). There are not many gluten free restaurants in Nashville so please support A Matter of Taste and any other restaurant that makes the effort to go gluten free.

A Matter of Taste Take Out

The owner of the business was diagnosed with a Gluten Allergy, she knows the difficulties of eating out. She wanted to create a menu that could provide options. All of the items on their menu are gluten free, unless you order regular bread (which they have brought in, and not made in their kitchen).

A Matter of Taste Take Out offers fresh food, take out, for busy people who like to have wholesome options. Do you know what’s in your food? They do! They offer freshly made sandwiches, salads, soups, sweet treats and daily specials or you can choose from their grab and go selections. They feature farm fresh, local (when possible) ingredients of the highest quality.

The owner says, “I have especially missed sandwiches, crackers and baked goods that taste great! Most gluten free options for breads, cookies and other baked goods are very dense and often flavorless. My goal was to create food that my kids would not automatically ask “is this gluten free mom”? They love our cookies and I must say our cookies ROCK! as does everything else on our menu! Our fresh baked goodies are all gluten free and will change frequently. Our cookies rock!”

Controlling gluten

Controlling gluten in your food is difficult

Celiacs can control the food supply in their own home by reading labels and being careful what they buy and eat. A simple thing like dipping in the butter a second time when buttering toast, can leave bread crumbs in the butter.  This may be all it takes to trigger an autoimmune reaction.  Some Celiacs remove all the gluten from their homes and everyone eats gluten free, it is easier and safer that way.

Controlling the food at home is difficult, but when eating out a Celiac has no control over what is in the food.  If gluten free food is ordered and the cook contaminates it with flour during preparation, Celiacs will become ill.

Restaurants are starting to become more aware of the problems Celiacs face and many restaurants can prepare gluten free food.  The problem for Celiacs is finding those restaurants that can serve them safely. Travel can be especially difficult when one is not familiar with the restaurants in the area.  Finding a restaurant is a simple thing for most people, but for a Celiac it can be a time consuming and frustrating experience. When most people travel they find a restaurant that looks good and stop to eat.  When a Celiac wants to find a restaurant they stop and ask if the restaurant can serve gluten free food.  Often this question is met with a blank stare from the server, so moving on is the only choice. When a restaurant says they can serve gluten free food a Celiac needs to decide if in fact they can.  Usually this is done through a series of questions, if the answers seem reliable the decision may be to stay for a meal. If the food is contaminated with gluten, the Celiac is the one who suffers not the restaurant employees.

Regulations for food labeling in Canada

Health Canada Regulations – Food Allergens

New regulations regarding the labeling of food allergens for Canadians came into force August 4, 2012.  The Health Canada report states that “approximately five to six per cent of young children and three to four per cent of adults suffer from food allergies. Nearly one per cent of the population is affected by celiac disease, for whom the consumption of foods containing gluten can lead to long term complications.

The new regulations will require better labeling of packaged foods to make it easier for people to understand what allergens are present in the food they purchase. Under the old rules labels often showed contents such as spices, or natural or artificial flavours.  These products could contain gluten or other allergens and the user had no way of knowing what the contents were.

The new regulations will require additional and better  labeling and require clearer language declaring “hidden” allergens, gluten sources.

Great new for Celiacs and others with food allergies.

Pip’s Place Gluten Free Cakery

PIP’S STORY

My daughter Olivia, who we nick-named Pippi when she was a little girl, was diagnosed with celiac disease when she was fourteen years old. Coming to grips with her new dietary restrictions was a challenge for Pip, but also for me as her mother.
As we learned together how to deal with her condition, I was inspired by her strength, determination and willingness to accept this new way of eating. I was determined that Olivia would not have to give up her favorites when it came to my baking. What ensued was a journey of discovery, as I learned to create wonderful recipes from gluten free ingredients. After just a short time on the new diet she commented to me, “Mom, do people really feel this good every day?” Success. Not only was she finally healthy and feeling well, she was doing so while continuing to enjoy her favorite baked treats.  Eating gluten free is more than a diet – it is a way of life. Due to the risk of contamination, our entire house became a gluten free zone. With my new celiac-friendly recipes, Pip’s brothers. Drew and Bradley, didn’t know (or care) that all the baking in the house had become gluten free.
Olivia paid me a wonderful compliment before she left for college saying “with everything you baked for me, I have never felt deprived.” Pip’s Place is for Olivia and everyone like her with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. You can safely enjoy homemade baking with confidence because there is no chance of cross contamination. At Pip’s Place, you can finally feel free to indulge again.
