Today is a beautiful hot day in the country. Dinner will be minimal. Last night after the jam-packed opening of my friend, Wolf Kahn's. A large group of us headed back to his studio. Then began the nightmare of the gluten intolerant, a cocktail party with hors d'ouevre that were meant to substitute for dinner. Everything was on pieces of bread or wrapped in wheat noodles. We went out to dinner and that is why there will be a chapter in the forthcoming book filled with food that is safe for me. It also has no dairy food in it as there aree even more people who are lactose intolerant than the gluten intolerants.
I think that there can be good and delicious food for cocktails that don't proclaim their restrictions.
