Travel & Leisure

Yosemite National Park

Today we are traveling to California to visit Yosemite National Park. The gluten free lifestyle is gaining so much momentum, that one of the most pristine location in America is taking notice. The Yosemite Lodge at the Falls has a chef named Michael Gover that has added items to the menu for people with gluten intolerances. Gover realizes that gluten-intolerance is often associated with other food sensitivities and has made it a point to be knowledgeable about various modified diets. While Yosemite Lodge at the Falls offers a variety of gluten-free options that include rice pasta and GF bread for substitutions, Gover encourages guests to contact him directly prior to their visit to begin a dialogue on how to best meet their gluten-free needs. Gover and his staff will make every accommodation necessary to ensure a gluten-free meal without cross contamination concerns.

Rooted in classical fare featuring organic foods from the region, the Mountain Room Restaurant at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls specializes in eclectic cuisine to cater to the varying preferences of travelers from around the country and the world. Below are a few of the mouth watering dishes they are serving up. Though I like to promote more family locations, this is a place better visited without the kids in tow.

Mahi-Mahi Monterey-Coriander seasoned fillet, jasmine rice, house vegetables, ranchero sauce, avocado crème fraiche
