Jessann Cohn, a trained chef who works as a caterer, has just moved the Gluten Free bar a bit further. The Haight resident is the winner in the Squat and Gobble gluten free crepe contest and won $300 and a years worth of monthly meals. Cohn currently works as a caterer with one of the larger SF catering companies.
“”Crepe’ and ‘Gluten Free’ are rarely heard in the same sentence” according to Squat and Gobble managing partner Issa Sweidan. “Because we specialize in crepes, we wanted to include an alternative for people with gluten issues. So we conducted this contest to get some new ideas to make sure all of our customers can enjoy our family-friendly menu.”
Cohn’s winning recipe replaces traditional flour with chickpea flour among its chief ingredients. Beginning this month a version of her crepe will appear on the menu at all five Squat and Gobble locations.
At the same time, all locations will offer gluten-free pasta, as well.
Squat and Gobble has served the Upper Haight, Lower Haight, Marina, Castro and West Portal since 1994. Www.squatandgobble.com.
