Guess who gave Jack's Burger Shack gluten free burger a thumbs up?

1 comment
Here is a great guest blog post by Kimberly on her visit to Jack's Burger Shack in St. Albert just outside of Edmonton. Kimberly's son has Celiac Disease and guess who gave this burger shack a thumbs up?

Thought you may want to check this place out…



On Saturday we went to Jack’s Burger Shack as people in St. Albert can’t stop talking about them. We heard they have gluten free buns and the fries are gluten free. We took our son there (he has Celiac Disease) he was so excited to go to a burger place and have a bun like the rest of us. The buns are from Kinnikinnick Foods. They were very Celiac aware. The only thing he could not have was a malt garlic aioli dip that came with my husband’s fries. Devin had the cheeseburger, fries and a vanilla milkshake and he even ate it all! The hamburger was very flavourful and looked like it was handmade. I can’t say for sure because they were way too busy to ask. The place gets very busy and apparently sells out before the dinner rush is over. We went in about 11:45am and when we sat down to eat, it was lined up out the door. We will definitely be going back!

@ChefCowan and @100BarKitchen Brings on the taste without the gluten

No comments
Compliments to the Chef is all I have to say!  The Canadian Celiac Association Edmonton Chapter took Chef Andrew Cowan and his 100 Bar and Kitchen to task.  Cater a gluten free dinner for a sold out 40 Celiac's in downtown Edmonton!  So what I'm about to walk you though is a unique menu to 100 Bar and Kitchen because its not on the menu.  Chef Cowan went off menu and came up with amazing flavours in a three course family style meal.  Now this doesn't mean Celiac's can't eat there, just check out their gluten free friendly menu.  100 bar is part of Century Hospitality Group which does gluten free really well.

First up, both a watermelon and feta salad and a smoked salmon salad.  Both delightfully tasty.  Perfectly cooked salmon on fresh greens.  I've had a watermelon and feta salad before, but what made this one different than the others, was the cracked pepper which added that extra layer of flavours.


Warm potato salad and a coleslaw, which really complimented the two main courses.


First up BBQ brisket.  My oh my did Chef Cowan out do him self with this slow cooked brisket in a hoe made BBQ sauce.  What really made this brisket was the nice char he got on the brisket.


The second entree, a Korean fried chicken, which I learned is a double fried chicken.  He got some wonderful flavours on this chicken, and I would love to know the recipe.  Chef Cowan got a great crust on the chicken with a cornmeal breading.  The chicken was served on a bed of seasoned rice.


Last but not least (this is actually on the menu), flourless chocolate cake, topped with grilled peach and a raspberry sauce.  Which we all agreed, was amazing, and was like a chocolate fudge that melted in your mouth.


Would I eat there again off the menu?  Heck yes!!!!!!  Hope you do to!

VH Asian Sauces - All Sauces are Now Gluten Free!

No comments
When we first started researching the gluten free diet, it was to our surprise that sauces contained gluten.  In fact it was difficult to find a soy sauce that was gluten free.  Until we found VH.  What a life saver, we can make stir fry's again.  Fast forward several years, we can now make lots more because VH has made all of their sauces gluten free.  And they have a lot of great sauces from Pad Thai, Tandoori to Honey Garlic and Teriyaki.  Below we tried out the Tandoori Sauce.  It was very tasty, a nice sweet flavour.  It passed the kid test and our 1 year old couldn't get enough of it.  One great thing that VH does is share recipes with their sauces.  So if you want to try something different check out the packaging and the VH website for recipes.  Just remember because their sauces are gluten free, their recipe may not be.  So be sure to read them carefully and make any subtitutes as needed.

Gluten Free Bisquick

1 comment
I really thought I wrote about this, but apparently I didn't.  I know I certainly posted this on Facebook in the past because the gluten free bisquick product is our favourite to use for waffles.  Up until recently we only found this product in the United States, or a small pharmacy in Winnipeg that would slap on their own French label.  Now, Betty Crocker finally introduced this popular product for waffles, biscuits and other baked products to Canadian shelves.  Yes, like most gluten free products, it comes in smaller package and costs more, but this product well worth it. We have seen gluten free bisquick at Save on Foods and Safeway in Edmonton.
