At the holidays, devoted hosts and hostesses are often faced with the challenge of serving a meal that can be enjoyed by folks of all culinary persuasions—including those who are vegetarian, vegan, gluten—or lactose intolerant, or simply allergic to nuts. Menu planning becomes a more complex affair but thanks to the multitude of products available in our specialty foods section you'll find everything you need to serve up truly delicious dishes that can be enjoyed by all.
The web is also awash in recipes and menus that don't compromise on flavor or festivity regardless of dietary restrictions. Epicurious.com brings together years of recipes compiled from Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, Gourmet and other "foodie" sources. Use the advanced search engine to type in an ingredient, dietary restriction, food style, or occasion and right before your eyes you'll find pages of delicious recipe suggestions. One of the resources we've discovered and especially enjoy is the blog, Gluten Free Girl. This fabulous resource provides lots of ideas and recipes for the holidays, including gluten free gingerbread men!
In stores around the country, the list of available specialty food items continues to grow and we're proud to say TOP carries more than 500 gluten-free and natural food products! Of course some items will be more helpful than others as you shop for the holidays, like gluten-free flours, soy and rice-based milks, vegetable stock, and a wide selection of and organic fruits and vegetables, all of which will allow you to create delectable dishes without worrying that your guests won’t be able to enjoy them.
