The Gluten-Free Expo is being held in Chicago this upcoming weekend, April 29 – May 1, 2011. Tickets for the vendor fair alone are $15 at the door, children ages 12 and under are free. Presentations by favorite bloggers and chefs will take place on a stage in the vendor area for no additional cost. Some cooking classes are available for additional fees.
In late May, Nature’s Pharm in Lafayette, Indiana will be hosting a spring gluten-free tasting on May 21, 2011. I was told today that a representative from Udi’s will be on site to hand out samples of the new hamburger and hotdog buns, along with the new ancient grains bread. I’m looking forward to attending these events. Maybe I will see you there!
On Tuesday – September 21, 2010 the Gluten-Free Girl, Shauna James Ahern, and her esteemed husband, the Chef, are releasing a new cookbook. I can hardly wait to see this new book. Order your copy today!
Until the book arrives at your doorstep, Amazon is offering a sneak peek at a few of the recipes:
Smoked Salmon and Tomato Napoleon
Warm Rice Salad
The Chelsea Clinton – Marc Mezvinsky wedding reception was catered by the St. Regis Hotel in New York with a menu of locally raised grass-fed beef (short ribs) or grilled Atlantic char, risotto, salad, and dinner rolls. All the bread served was gluten-free.
The wedding cake was an eleven-tier chocolate cake was also gluten-free. Apparently Chelsea Clinton has a gluten allergy! The cake was created by La Tulipe Desserts in Mt. Kisco, NY with a price tag of $11,000. What does it take to make this huge gluten-free cake? 45 pounds of gluten-free flour, 360 organic eggs, 50 pounds of sugar, 30 pounds of butter and bittersweet chocolate, and about 1000 sugar flowers.
That would have been a wedding reception I would have been able to eat dinner and the cake too! I wonder what the cost was per plate of food.
