I am teaming up with The Glens Falls and Saratoga Celiac Support Group and O’Toole's again for the Second Annual Gluten Free Buffet at O’Toole's Restaurant Pub in Queensbury. The buffet will take place at O’Toole's on Tuesday, April 1 at 6pm.
O’Toole’s was the first restaurant in the area to complete the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) Gluten-Free Resource Education and Awareness Training (GREAT).
A gluten-free diet requires attentive food preparation and handling. O’Toole's is exemplary as their kitchen contains no airborne flour. This program empowers the food industry to provide safe gluten-free options for individuals, businesses, and institutions. I was very happy to work with O’Toole’s and assist them in completing the NFCA GREAT Kitchens Course.
"We’ve recently added Angry Orchard Cider to our draft lineup, and we feature it every Friday as the draft special. We will proudly feature it on April 1st for the Second Annual Gluten Free Buffet!" says Steve Hawkins owner of O'Toole's. "In addition, we have a few new items on our extensive Gluten-Free menu… including shrimp cocktails, shrimp fajitas and thin crust pizzas…. We are proud to team up with The Saratoga & Glens Falls Celiac Support Group & Amy Rota-Poulin for this GREAT event! We look forward to seeing you at O'Toole's!"
O'Toole's offers a gluten free designated area within their restaurant's kitchen with a separate fryer and toaster. This helps to ensure that you can safely enjoy your french fries while your burger is served on a toasty Saratoga Gluten Free Goods Roll. And, don’t forget, their loaded potato skins are served up hot with gluten free Cabot Sour Cream.
The buffet will include a scrumptious appetizer, delicious main entrees, including O'Toole's famous gluten free Chicken Parmesan accompanied by gluten free toast points using NFCA GREAT Kitchen Status Saratoga Gluten Free Good's bread. It will also include coffee or tea.
The cost for the buffet will be $20.00 per person. This does include tax and gratuity. Gluten Free dessert and alcoholic beverages will be available but for an additional cost. Reserve your place as soon as possible as last years event was sold out!! For reservations please call O'Toole's Restaurant and Pub directly, at (518)-793-3389.

These Crunchy Goat Cheese Bites are scrumptiously crunchy on the outside and like biting into a creamy goat cheesy pillow on the inside. This recipe can be partially made ahead of time and stored in your freezer. When company comes over, simply sauté them in olive oil, and they are ready to enjoy.
