The holiday season means we get together often to enjoy feasts with family and friends. But that can be a challenge for people with certain food allergies.

Jason Handelman with Whole Foods was in our ABC7 studio to show us how to make a foolproof gluten-free gravy for Thanksgiving.

He also talked about options for holiday dinners for those with food allergies or specifications like a vegan dinner.
