Several months ago, I wrote about gluten intolerance being on the upturn and published Tom's popular gluten-free potato-crust frittata. I want to be sure that guests coming to the Whistling Swan Inn will be able to enjoy the breakfast buffet, so I continue to research recipes that are not only gluten-free, but delicious.
celiac disease, cross-contamination is always a big concern, because even a stray bread crumb can set off a chain of events resulting in dire illness.
This weekend I discovered Mama's Cafe Baci, an Italian restaurant in Hackettstown. Just a short drive from the Inn, Mama's not only serves up an exquisite gluten-free menu, but in fact, owner, Tom Schiano, has invested considerable funds to retrofit his kitchen with separate prep areas and equipment to prevent cross-contamination. For the full story, click on the NJ Monthly link.
For a fine Italian dinner (gluten intolerant, or not), visit Mama's Cafe Baci.
