Gluten-free expert, author, coach and advocate Jules Shepard hosts a weekly show offering news, interviews with intriguing guests, gluten-free baking tips and otherwise lively conversation.
The ever popular conversation about how to eat out with gluten and other food sensitivities is the topic of this week's show. Joining Jules are two gluten-free dining gurus to discuss how to eat out safely.
Jennifer Harris (gfgotoguide.com and @gfgotoguide) works as a consultant to restaurants wanting to offer gluten-free dishes to their diners. Jennifer is also the Atlanta Gluten Free Food Examiner and has worked as a chef in a corporate kitchen and a gluten-free buyer for a health food store. A gluten-free diner herself, Jennifer brings many perspectives to dining out, gluten free.

She has also compiled a database of over 500 Bay Area restaurants which highlights what the restaurants do to practice safe gluten handling practices.
Stephanie Speaks will discuss the topic of kids & restaurants! Some time ago a restaurant decided that no kids would be allowed after a certain time to allow people to have a nice quiet dinner. Some were in a an uproar. Another one decided that no kids were allowed. Again people were in the uproar! The latest situation was where a child threw food on a customer and the parent was asked to leave. The parent was upset and said had the restaurant not taken so long with her food then the kids wouldn't have been unruly. I could tell that she really just wanted to sit and eat her meal but sometimes you can't do that with little ones. How do you feel about the restaurant asking her to leave. The customer pitched a fit about having food thrown on him. Now she claimed that the waitress said something about coming back when the kids were older and under more control. The mom had alot of supporterts but I had mixed feelings about this. Let's talk about it!

This week, Chef Elliott has the distinct honor of highlighting the culinary and sweet genius of the ”Award-Winning Pastry Chef To The Stars," THE "Suga Chef," Pastry Chef Padua Player! Chef Padua grew up cooking with his mom in the District of Columbia. One of the first dishes Chef Padua created was a recipe taken from the kids section in a local DC newspaper. Any opportunity that arose for the budding pastry chef to help his mom in creating a family dish, he was front and center to soak in her culinary teachings. This contributed to his creative juices and he began to fashion up his own recipes for tasty quick bread mixes and assorted fruit cobblers. Chef Padua honed his skills and worked his way up the foodie ranks to plating desserts, which lead to him assisting the pastry chef two days a week. He moved on to his first baking stint and credits Pastry Chef, Susan McCreight Lindeborg as his mentor, picking up from where his mother had laid the culinary groundwork.
Chef Padua attended Baltimore International College, worked in the bakery at Marriott in Georgetown University and went on to work at some of DC’s top catering houses and restaurants such as DC Coast, Café Milano, Notte Luna and Ceiba. He was reviewed by the famed DC food critic Phyllis Richman, who gave him, thumbs up on his desserts and received an official letter from Vice President Biden.
Chef Padua has appeared on the television show, Platinum Weddings, has been a contestant on Food Network’s Sweet Genius and also provided his pastry services for the late Chuck Brown, singer Macy Gray, comedian Bill Bellamy, actress Pam Grier, comedian Damon Wayans, and singer Crystal Waters.

Giorgios (your go) Karayannis, co-founber of Kolossos, producers and importers of 100% pure Olive oil, from the land of the best olives in the world - Greece. Join ArtSees Diner, Mary E., as she explores the passion that is sensed in every luxirous droplet of nature's elixir! We will explore what makes the perfect olive oil. If you answer "It's Greek to me!" then you have come to the right place. Because as Giorgios will tell you, you are right! It is - GREEK!
The best olives in the world come from Greece. Kolossos produces and imports the finest, Extra Virgin olive oils. Kolossos is estate grown and carefully hand selected olives are harvested and pressed at the precise moment resulting in a 100% pure, unfiltered oil that is extraordinary in taste and fragrance, as fresh as summer on the islands of Greece. Their premium varieties come from groves centuries old, standing the test of time. Mary E. and Giorgios will explore some of the best ways to enjoy your Kolossos olive oil and share a few tips along the way.
Here's a little secret...shhh... Mary E's favorite way to enjoy Kolossos olive oil is to generously swirl it over Moe's amazing hummus from The Pickle and Turnip in the heart of Michigan City Uptown neighborhood, followed with a smooth sip of Ksara...shhhh if too many people find out, she will never have a seat!

Paid your debt to society? Think again and keep paying.
Our literary and cinematic clichés include felons reinventing themselves after prison. Our society actively discourages reintegration. We are more like Valjean/Javert or Hester Prynne. You will wear your mistake and pay for it so long as you live.
Most obvious are CORI-style criminal-records files that give employers an excuse to hire someone other than an ex-convict. That keeps the former felon struggling and poor.
Even among rich celebrities, there can be pushback. Lately Mak Wahlberg has asked for a pardon from an old conviction for a racist assault (one of several in his teens and early 20s). Seems as a convicted felon, he has problems getting liquor licenses for his burger restaurants. Consider the harm and hopelessness if you aren't a wealthy, famous music and movie star.
At a base level though, why do the feds encourage states to bar former felons from the number one civic duty of voting? Only two New England states let incarcerated criminals vote absentee. Quite a few permanently ban participation in elections.
There is some logic to preventing ex-convicts from getting gun permits...but only if they had committed vioent offenses. But honestly, why separate the paid-their-debt crowd from the rights of citizenship?
