I am aiming to document the food traditions of individuals and families with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. The purpose of this project is to establish a cultural history and unite people for whom gluten-free is a necessary way of life. I am looking for people to contribute experiences and information regarding things like:
  • Adaptation of established family/cultural food traditions and creation of new ones
  • The evolution over the past several decades of GF cookbooks/recipe resources and how people use them
  • The availability of GF supplies/products across time, particularly flours & other scratch ingredients
  • Community and culture surrounding GF food online and in person, including the role of blogs, forums, restaurants/bakeries, and support groups

I’d love to hear from anyone who would like to share some of their experiences with living gluten-free! Especially, though, I am looking for:
  • People who have been - or have a family member who has been - on a GF diet prior to ~15 years ago
  • People who have experience with GF outside of the USA
  • People with multi-generational GF family members
  • People who did a lot of baking/cooking pre-GF and/or who do a lot of GF baking/cooking now
If you are interested in contributing to the project, please contact me at!

I will be expanding this page with resources and other info as my research progresses - stay tuned!


  1. Bonjour
    Notre à 16 ans coeliaque depuis toujours faisons nous même ses menus à la maison
    Bon projet merci

  2. I'm aware of this article and video from an Indian woman whose mother developed a gluten free rotli because she realized gluten was hurting her.

    Although I suspect my grandmother had Celiac, nobody in my family was tested until last year. And despite three people in my family having severe stomach and gut distress, and two of them can't keep any weight on at all... they all refuse absolutely to be tested for Celiac! I wish I had traditions to support me, but I'm starting new ones.
