Weekend Update - Happy Easter / Passover!

Hey Everyone,

I feel like it's been a while since I've had a weekend update and I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you some gluten free goodness!

In the past 2 weeks, two primetime TV shows have featured gluten free products. On March 26th, 2009, ABC's Private Practice aired an episode in which Violet Turner (Amy Brenneman) could be seen eating a bag of gluten free pretzels by Ener-G brand. This week, on the CW's 90210 they actually work gluten free bread into the storyline and name it as a great reason to stay living in Los Angeles instead of returning to their hometown of Kansas.

On Thursday night, I had dinner at a fabulous restaurant in NYC's Times Square that has recently added a gluten free menu. It is a French-Italian restaurant called Nizza. They have a great selection of choices on their gluten free menu. I had a dish called Socca, which is a piece of flat bread made out of chickpea flour topped with sage, onions, and parmesan cheese with an arugula salad to start. I will describe the restaurant in more detail with some pictures of the food in an upcoming post.

I also wanted to thank all of the loyal visitors of Ms. Celiac Says. In just 3 months, this site has grown tremendously! And of course, none of this would be possible without the delicious products from our favorite brands and the restaurants that cater to gluten free diners. These brands/restaurants will be listed at the end of this post along with a link to their websites.

I would like to especially thank Applegate Farms, who sent me some of their delicious gluten free chicken nuggets and I would also like to thank Arico Foods for sending me their unbelievably addictive cassava chips, and a fine selection of cookies, coupons, and a t-shirt!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This upcoming week, Ms. Celiac Says...will be featuring the restaurants and products of Paris, France and be sure to stay tuned for exclusive gluten free giveaways coming soon!

Today I will be enjoying a gluten free Passover Cake from Shabtai Gourmet for Easter lunch. In an upcoming post, I will let you all know how it was!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
