What to Avoid at a Potluck When You're Gluten Free
Answer: almost everything.
The sad thing for most celiacs is that unless you've made the dish yourself or another gluten free person has made it, you can never really be 100% sure that it's safe for you to eat. This makes going to potlucks especially difficult because you want to be able to participate in this community building activity and enjoy the foods your friends have made.
If you're the only gluten free person attending the potluck, you should just bring a gluten free dish that you can eat. You'll still be able to attend the potluck and chat with your friends, but since no one can safely make food for you and your allergy, it's perfectly acceptable to bring a meal just for you. Of course, you can always make a bigger dish and share it with the rest of the potluck, but make sure that you get enough of it first.
If there are more people with food allergies attending the potluck, it would make the most sense to separate the different foods. Keep the gluten free food at one of the table and label it clearly so everyone knows (this advice applies to other severe food allergies like nuts and dairy as well).
If you're standing in the potluck line with your plate and you're unsure what a dish was made with (maybe it's naturally gluten free!), just ask. No one will be offended if you explain that you have a specific allergy and you'd like to eat the dish, but you need to double check that it's safe for you.
