BEST CHEF FOR ON-THE-SPOT GLUTEN-FREE ENTREES: Max Sherard, Brew Bus

BEST CHEF FOR ON-THE-SPOT GLUTEN-FREE ENTREES

I’ve spent the year dealing with a celiac diagnosis, and one of the things I’ve had to learn not to hate to do is ask about gluten every time I want to try a new dish. At Brew Bus, that request brought out the chef, Max Sherard, who simply asked me what I didn’t like to eat (other than scrapple, there really isn’t anything) and came back with one of the most delicious invented-on-the-spot things I could have ever imagined. Kudos for his creativity and willingness to make me something tasty and filling, as opposed to, “Well, you can always get a salad, sans dressing and croutons.” —Cathy Salustri
