South Florida Gluten-Free Cooking Spree

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:09am

Mark your calendars and sharpen your knives! The National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes s and CNN Newsroom Anchor Heidi Collins invite you to the South Florida Gluten-Free Cooking Spree. The Gluten-Free Cooking Spree is an event that joins together the medical and lifestyle aspects of celiac disease to educate both doctors and chefs about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.

Here's how it works:

  • Top chefs and medical professionals will be put on to teams of three. Each team will have one chef, one doctor and one medical support professional. Together, the teams will work to create the best gluten-free meal.
  •  Attendees will sample the food cooked by the chefs and enjoy a large assortment of other gluten-free food options. Come hungry! All attendees will take home a fabulous goodie bag filled with treats from a variety of gluten-free vendors.
  • A three-person panel will judge recipes: Sonja Lovett (Palm Beach Post), Sarah Jane Kenyon (LPGA Golfer and NFCA Spokeswoman) and Phyllis Kessler (President PBC Celiac Support Group).
