How to keep a gluten intolerant guest safe this Thanksgiving

I always suggest letting people know in advance. It’s far more difficult to maneuver if you make an announcement once seated at the Holiday table. If you are allergic or intolerant always let your host know in advance - don't assume they will know or remember. Since I have a severe food allergy (to seafood), even if it’s not a potluck I offer to bring a safe dish or two so there’s definitely always something on the table I can eat, and the host doesn’t have to prepare separate food items. Some ambitious home chefs, however, embrace taking on the epicurean substitution challenge! I affectionately dub this, 'No 8 On The Plate'. In that case, I recommend keeping food labels for everything used to prepare the meal so the allergic guest can double-check the ingredient list.
