This is about where I draw the line.  I can make dishes without gluten.  
I can be ordinarily careful about not cross-contaminating.  I can't 
control everything, and I can't make the kitchen gluten-free.  If anyone 
is so very sensitive to gluten that that isn't good enough, then I can't 
do much for them.  They need to take responsibility for their own food.
