This subtropical fruit has been cultivated for thousands of years in Mexico and Central America.  Mexicans, who seldom eat a meal without them, are the main consumers of avocados worldwide, eating an average of 20 pounds per person per year.

More and more we hear about the gluten-free diet, which eliminates a protein naturally found in wheat, rye and barley. For people suffering from Celiac disease, an autoimmune intolerance to gluten, this diet is a must. Others choose to observe a gluten-free diet to improve their overall health.

A few years ago, finding gluten-free products in a store was nearly impossible. These days it is easier to find

gluten-free pasta, bread, pizza and yes, even chocolate chip cookies! Fortunately, more restaurants, cafes and bakeries are also expanding their gluten-free offerings. Even airlines are changing their in-flight menus to offer gluten-free alternatives.

As Neighborhood Kitchens has explored New England and met several great cooks, we have learned that cuisines from all over the world – Mexican, Thai, Indian, Japanese – offer great gluten-free options.
