Help!!! Cooking for friend who has gluten allergies!

RouxGirl | May 10, 2013 04:02 AM

A friend of mine has gluten allergies and I am trying to put together a meal for her and her boyfriend. I was going to make a good Southern meal with fried green tomatoes, squash casserole and other things that include the use of panko bread crumbs and crackers. Are there any substitutes for the bread crumbs or crackers that won't alter the taste too much?

Changing gears, I can make a good pasta dish and substitute these noodles I bought that are gluten free but what about a good gluten free crusty bread? Is that available anywhere?

Has anyone substituted another ingredient for flour in fried shrimp? Or another ingredient for crackers in crabcakes? Has anyone used cornstarch in the place of flour or rice flour?

Many thanks for any suggestions!
