Eating Gluten Free

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.

Still, there's always the dilemma of where to send people with gluten sensitivity for lunch or dinner. For people with severe gluten intolerance or full blown 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.

20% Savings on Whistling Swan Inn Gift Certificates

This year why not give a present that truly delights...a gift certificate to the Whistling Swan Inn, my New Jersey bed and breakfast.  Aunt Joan only likes designer duds? Brother Bob hasn't taken his wife away in five years? Mom and Dad have pretty much everything? A gift certificate for a relaxing
and rejuvenating getaway is the perfect gift for all those hard-to-buy-for people on your holiday list.


The perfect gift - the perfect getaway
From November through December 31, 2013, Whistling Swan gift certificates are 20% off. So for example, a $100 gift certificate will only cost you $80! What could be better? The gift certificate will be mailed to you free of charge, and will be packaged ready to give.

You can either book conveniently online, or by calling the Inn directly at 973-347-6369. Discounted gift certificates have an expiration of one year, and other restrictions do apply.

So why not give a gift that will bring the recipients double excitement...delight when they open the package on Christmas morning and again when they plan their weekend getaway at the Whistling Swan Inn.
