December GF Gathering Sat Dec 10, 12-2

Gluten-Free Gathering for the Holidays.
(No regular December 2011 Meeting)

Come to GIG of Portland's December Gluten-Free Gathering on December 10th at Jade Bistro and Tea House in Sellwood.

Jade has an extensive gluten-free menu for appetizers, soups & salads, entrees and desserts. Jade does not accept reservations, so you need to RSVP to Lisa Shaver (see below). Their menu is diverse, fresh, and 90% gluten-free. For those who aren't Asian food fanatics, they make a great burger on a GF bun, and carry a gluten-free beer from Colorado, New Planet Off Grid Pale Ale, as well as wine, and my favorite: their sipping vinegars - quite refreshing. Quite a selection of GF desserts including GF sesame balls to die for. Caution: at $1.50 each, these sesame balls are quite addicting.

The restaurant is four blocks North of the New Season's Market on Tacoma and 13th, and 2 blocks North of the Sellwood Pizza Kitchen (also known for it's GF menu - great pizza.)

7912 SE 13th
