Writes reader Maggie M:
I’m a new GF eater & finding your website super helpful. I chatted with the girl who runs this place: Crepes a la Carte about possibly offering a GF crepe at her stand. She asked me a lot of questions about why I’m GF and what kind of contamination is safe and etc. She was interested in doing GF and getting it right. Within 2 weeks she had a GF crepe available. As far as the contamination goes, she uses two teflon burners, and washes one off with water & a washcloth when making the GF crepe. Appears all other ‘equipment & utensils’ are kept separate for the GF crepe. Toppings involve jams & fruits, so are GF. I personally will not have a reaction to a speck of wheat, and I know some folks do so of course, buyer beware. Certainly though-she goes to lengths to keep things safe.
Hope you find this info useful & that others can enjoy her tasty crepes!! I loved my first one so much-I ordered a second. She is at Orenco Station Farmer’s market on Sunday AMs and Tanasbourne Market on Wednesday nights.
PS…also at the Orenco market & trying to pass off his tapenade as ‘gluten free’ when the ingredient list states ‘bread crumbs’ about 1/2 way down would be The Hummus Stop. He puts a label on stating “Gluten Free”. I questioned the owner who said ‘well-it’s just a little bit’ and then when I pressed him, he basically told me to go away. You win some, you lose some I guess!
Thanks to Maggie for the info! This place sounds a lot “safer” to eat than the other crepe places we’ve reviewed – Perierra and Chez Machin. We’ve also just heard that Hot Lips Pizza has gluten-free pizza dough available (thanks Noah).
Sorry for the lack of postings lately. Besides Summer arriving (finally!), I’ve been working on losing weight recently and it’s been taking up a lot of my time and energy.
