Head Chef Owen and Sous Chefs, Ingrid and Ashton, were very familiar with Celiac Disease/gluten intolerance and personally prepared my meals in dedicated pots and pans with separate utensils. I felt very confident that each meal was properly-prepared, with the chefs not risking cross-contamination at any cost. The kitchen had a stash of gluten-free mixes and pasta on hand, but it would be best to contact them in advance of your stay so that they are able to order enough for you.
*Gluten-free dishes I enjoyed included:
- Breakfast: Spanish omelette with potatoes, hot cereal with honey, golden pancakes
- Lunch: Vegetable Pizza, Rice with Steamed Vegetables
- Dinner: Grilled chicken and vegetables with corn pasta, rice pasta with grilled chicken and olives
- Dessert: Mousse brownies
I asked the Head Chef about accommodating other allergies, and he said they are happy to do so, with advance notice suggested. If you have been wary about traveling to a "hot spot" in the past because of your dietary restrictions, Breezes Bahamas will not disappoint. I highly recommend this resort! Chefs Owen, Ingrid and Ashton will take care of you!
