Shaun's Hosts Celiac Dinner, Sept. 14

Chef Shaun Doty's special dining series catering to those with celiac disease will continue on Sunday, September 14. This monthly tradition features a prix fixe, gluten-free and wheat-free menu for $45 and $65 with gluten-free beer pairings. The nightly varying á la carte menu will also be available.

The appetizer will feature 16 Month Aged Proscuitto Di Parma with an Asian Pear Salad, paired with Mistral Mimosa, which includes Prosecco, Lavender, Lemon and Honey. The intermezzo will include Heirloom Tomato Eggplant Soup with Basil Pesto and paired with Green's Tripel Ale. The featured entrée is a Scottish Salmon with Cardamom Honey with Spaghetti Squash, coupled with Green's Dubbel Ale. Dessert will be Homemade Muscadine Sorbet paired with the Redd Foxx, which includes MuddledFresh Muscadines, Courvoisier Vs, Honey and Lambrusco Bianco.

Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate the gluten protein, found in wheat, rye and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also be found in everyday products, such as stamp and envelope adhesive, medicines and vitamins. When people with celiac disease eat foods or use products containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine.

Chef Shaun Doty opened his highly anticipated eponymous restaurant Shaun's in the fall of 2006 to rave reviews. In 2007, Shaun's won Esquire magazine's prestigious Best New Restaurants Award. Chef Doty's career has taken him around the world and put him at the helm of some of Atlanta's most celebrated restaurants. Shaun's restaurant takes him back to his roots, serving ingredient-driven, creative American cuisine in a chic neighborhood setting.
