Celia Cascio, a chef at San Francisco’s renowned Cafe La Carrera, decided to cook up a new kind of gourmet cooking that would satisfy her “gourmet” cooking needs.
After years of being frustrated with her kitchen’s lack of gizmos and gadgets, she decided to create her own.
The idea for the recipe came about after Cascia found herself cooking with a number of ingredients that she didn’t necessarily know how to prepare, so she asked the chef to help her.
Cascianos kitchen is “designed around the idea of making the perfect meal” and the Chef Chef Chef project aims to make her kitchen more accessible to all of her patrons.
The project launched on Monday and is a collaboration between Casciano and Chef Chef.
The first batch of Chef Chef recipes was created for the public in September.
The recipe for the gluten-free cauliflower is the first to be available in the US, but the chef hopes to add gluten-containing foods to her repertoire over time.
“There’s been a lot of excitement around cauliflower, and the idea was that I wanted to do a recipe that would give people the option to get creative with what they make,” Cascias co-founder, Emily Casciani, told Mashable.
“I wanted to offer recipes that could be shared on Facebook and Instagram, and if people liked them, they could share them with friends.”
It’s the perfect way to get people to collaborate on something and then it becomes a community.
So I think it’s an exciting idea to be able to have a shared community that has ideas that are shared and people that are excited to collaborate.
“The recipe for cauliflower isn’t exactly vegan, but Cascians is taking a different approach with the cauliflower to be sure that it’s safe for her customers.”
Cascianas gluten-Free Gourmet Food Vendors is offering the caulichas to anyone who can provide proof that they are vegan and can prove that their family can make a meal with them. “
If you’re not vegan, it will be gluten-filled, so I don’t want to put in too much salt.”

The recipes are still being vetted by the team, but there is one recipe that Cascias team will be sharing in the coming weeks: “Cauliflower with Red Onion & Cilantro” with fresh parsley and roasted red onions.
“You can use any vegetables, but it will have to be roasted,” Casca said.
Cascio’s gluten-FREE Gourmet food is all-natural and vegan, which is why it’s so popular.
“When I started out, my mom told me gluten- free because it’s a plant-based, dairy-free alternative,” Cca said.
She added that her family uses a few different brands of products like wheat and corn flour, but “I’m not looking to compete with that.
I’m just trying to create an alternative that I can use.”
The recipes are also being shared on social media and she has plans to make more of them in the future.
Casca believes that gluten–free food is an opportunity for food bloggers to share recipes with the public.
“My mom has been working in the food industry for almost 30 years, and I’ve never met anyone who didn’t cook food for someone else, and now people are finding it so easy to share on Facebook,” she told Mash.
“The more people who are sharing recipes, the more we can make our lives easier.”
You can find the recipes on Cascianas Facebook page as well as her website.
