There are very few things that will get me to schlep downtown in the middle of the day here in New York City but I have to say that the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) is one of them. I was recently invited to the kick-off of their GREAT Kitchens National Chef’s Table Tour at chef Jehangir Mehta’s Mehtaphor in TriBeCa…
The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is hosting a debut fundraising event in New York City on October 18th.
100% of the proceeds – every single cent raised – goes toward supporting The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center’s awareness and outreach programs.
Another find from my Food Fête Summer visit comes from Amy’s – yes, the brand that has been delighting Celiacs for years with their diverse assortment of gluten-free options. Now, they are typically know for providing healthier ready-to-go options so I was surprised when they asked my if I had tried their candy bars. Candy bars?
I always look forward to Food Fête when it comes to New York City several times a year. Without fail, I always find fantastic new gluten-free or food allergy-friendly products when I am there. This past fête was definitely the largest that I have ever been to and was chock-full of fantastic new items from new companies and some old favorites.
Ever wonder things like, Why do we need a cure when we can just eat gluten-free? How about Whether there is a genetic marker for non-celiac gluten sensitivity? Or maybe Do coffee, corn, or other grains cause cross-reactivity?
