Many US startups are famous for their atmosphere: free massages at Google’s headquarter, free laundry at Facebook’s headquarter – Airbnb also has a kitchen and a chef in its San Francisco headquarter.

What I miss most being a celiac is not the taste of Italian pizza. It's not the ease of grabbing food when you are on the go. It's sharing actually.
When I go to restaurants with colleagues or friends we usually search for a place where I can find something to eat. (Eating salad is not considered eating.) When we order drinks I don't mind ordering wine when all the others choose beer. However, I appreciate it when someone aks me to share a bottle of wine. Sharing food is a lot more difficult for celiacs. In some places I have to order food without sauces or spices. Who else would want to try that? So I have to order carefully knowing that I would have to eat the dish even though I might not like it. Most of the times, I order more food than I can eat by myself. So that others can try my food (with clean forks) even though I cannot try theirs. I don't like it when people digg in to my dish and pretend they like it if they don't. If they don't like it, most of the times I don't either.
Staying in and cooking at home is easier. I love to invite friends to my place. And I don't mind shopping gluten-free food for everyone even though gluten-free groceries are much more expensive. It is a really good feeling when you do not have to pay attention to dirty forks that could attack your food or contageous sauces when it's gluten-free time for everyone.
I have a couple of friends that I fully trust to prepare food for me. Thank you Gabi, Nina, Christoph, Jörg, Zach and Mama for sharing.
