My son is a huge fan of Chebe bread…the Brazilian cheese bread made with tapioca/cassava flour and that happens to be gluten-free (and a very popular menu item at the gluten-free camp my son attends each summer!).

By now you know we like to make you aware of the very best gluten-free travel opportunities…and Ireland is one destination we're particularly excited about. Although the incidence of Celiac in Ireland is higher than elsewhere (close to 2% of the population) and awareness is good, care and caution are still needed when planning a trip and choosing places for the best gluten-free dining experiences. Now you can benefit from both Crafted Ireland Custom Tours' knowledge of the Emerald Isle AND the guidance of a gluten-free author and blogger. Together, they've planned a wonderful trip with gluten-free fine-dining experiences throughout Ireland. This 7-day/6-night trip will take place from October 11-17, 2015, and you'll enjoy luxury 5-star accommodations. This unforgettable journey will take you from Dublin to Killarney. You'll visit the Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Moher (pictured), and The Burren…as well as castles and gardens. You'll even participate in an elite cooking class and gourmet dinner at the Ballymaloe Cookery School and attend a whiskey master class at the Jameson Distillery (where all whiskeys are gluten free).
