Why Bother If You Can't Do Gluten Free Right?

Mark Kawabe - Friday, November 14, 2014

This really bothers me. A gluten free menu that's not meant for the people who really need gluten free food.

 

WTF?

Here's why, according to the company's website.

"Note: Despite all the care that we take in the preparation of our gluten-free menu dishes, we cannot guarantee the absence of cross-contamination while handling and cooking food." (From http://www.chezcora.com/our-menu/glutenfree/misc/tastersdelight, Nov. 14, 2014)

When it comes to something as important as someone's health, why would you offer a gluten free menu in big print and then in small print admit that the food could in fact be dangerous to someone who needs a gluten free menu?

It doesn't make sense to me. Perhaps they're just being honest when other restaurants are not. Or, perhaps they're jumping on the gluten-free marketing bandwagon.

Regardless, I will not be including Cora's on our list of restaurants with gluten free options. To see our list of Niagara restaurants that do, click here.
