Michael Savett Creates Online Resource for Delaware Valley Area Celiacs
From June 2010
Michael Savett struggled through years of frustration in the gluten-free industry. Savett’s son was diagnosed with celiac in 2003, and at that time, delicious gluten-free food was hard to come by. Knowing where you could get your toddler a cupcake or some decent pizza used to be a well-kept secret.
Last year, Michael decided that enough was enough - it was time to start his own blog, Gluten Free Philly, to provide relevant information to those in his community.
“I wanted to create a resource for people living in and visiting the Delaware Valley,” he explains, “and share my knowledge about gluten-free friendly restaurants and products in the area.”
Each week on Gluten Free Philly features a different celiac-friendly locale or product. Last week, Tesori’s Gluten Free Treats was mentioned. Michael also posts news for the celiac community, as well as ways to save on gluten-free products. Readers often submit their gluten-free findings, which Savett graciously adds to his site. Along with the news and product updates, Michael shares an extensive list of restaurants and bakeries that welcome gluten-free diners. This list, sorted by cuisine, includes maps and often menus. According to Savett, this is one of the more popular pages of his blog.
Thanks to Michael, Gluten Free Philly is a hit! Fortunately for Savett’s son and the rest of the celiacs in the Delaware Valley, safe, delicious gluten-free foods and menus are no longer a mystery!
