Chez Jacques to Honor Bastille Day During Celebration of Eleven Years in Business

Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) July 12, 2012

Chez Jacques celebrates eleven years in business, a grand opening of the Wine Garden (back patio) and honors Bastille Day with a four-day event, July 12th – 15th, coinciding with Bastille Days in France and Milwaukee.

Chez Jacques will feature a special Happy Hour on Thursday and Friday (July 12th and 13th) from 2pm – 6pm with $ 5 Bloody Marys, Mimosas, Red or White or Rose wine and Appetizers. Also featured will be the Tremblement de Terre (the earth quake), a special cocktail created by Toulouse-Lautrec made with half Absinthe and Cognac.

To honor Bastille Days in Milwaukee, a special dish, Poulet Basquaise, featuring 1/2 roasted chicken topped with saut? tomatoes, peppers, garlic and country ham and served with bow-tie pasta will be featured. The rooster is to France what the eagle is to the United States, a patriotic symbol. Also during dinner for the four days will be featured a special summer dish of pan seared scallops with a pineapple, cucumber, jalapeno chutney and organic quinoa.

To make either of these entr?es complete we suggest the 2011 Domaine de Fontsainte Gris de Gris Corbieres. This tonic rose from the Languedoc gives off notes of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberry followed by exotic aromas such as pineapple and mango to create a great summer wine.

For dessert we suggest the Cr?me Brul?e made with vanilla extract, or Bread Pudding made with fresh croissants.

All in all, a very special four days of food, wine and French culture to celebrate Bastille Day, eleven years of serving authentic French cuisine in Milwaukee and the cozy and relaxing Wine Garden. “Voila, Bon Appetit et bonnes fetes de la Bastille from Chez Jacques.

New Article by WhatisGluten.net Tells How to Avoid Gluten During Thanksgiving

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (PRWEB) November 23, 2011

WhatisGluten.net recently updated its website with a new article about which gluten products to watch out for during Thanksgiving.

The Gluten-Free Thanksgiving post is timely information for anyone with a gluten allergy or celiac disease. It discusses what items in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner could contain gluten and how they can be avoided. We provide people with a gluten allergy with great advice on how to steer clear of gluten as they enjoy their holiday meal, said Melinda Knight, who authored the article.

WhatisGluten.net is an established and trusted source of information on the topic of gluten. We are the authority on what gluten is and how to avoid gluten with certain menus during the holidays, Knight said. Our site has been around for several years, providing insight on what is gluten even before it became a popular diet.

In addition to offering unique advice for specific holiday foods with gluten, WhatisGluten.net offers general information on the topic. The website covers the basics about gluten, gluten allergy and gluten intolerance. It also includes other helpful features such as a Gluten-Free Candy List, Foods Containing Gluten: The Ultimate List and iPhone Apps for Gluten-Free Living.

Gluten is a type of food protein that is typically found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley, as well as other carbohydrates. However, gluten is not present in many grains and cereals, including wild rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, oats, soybeans, sunflower seeds and buckwheat. Gluten is often used in sauces, flavorings, flavor enhancers and even as a binder or filler in vitamins and supplements.

Contrary to popular belief, gluten is not necessarily bad for your health. However, some people have a difficult time digesting gluten and should avoid gluten entirely. Gluten allergy and intolerance can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including nausea, diarrhea, constipation, hair loss, joint pain, diabetes, arthritis and even depression. As with any suspected health-related issue, people should consult their physician before going on a gluten-free diet.
