Allergy and Gluten-Free Expo
Aug 06, 2012 11:24AM
The second annual Gluten & Allergen Free Expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., September 8 and 9, at The Westin Park Central, in Dallas. Bringing together some of the nation’s leading chefs, best-selling cookbook authors and nutrition and health experts, the Expo intends to to help people learn how to prepare healthy, tasty meals and baked goods without gluten and some of the most common allergens. Attendees will also be able to try products from more than 100 vendors before buying them at the store.
“Living on a restricted diet doesn't have to mean living without the joy of cooking, baking and eating foods that look and taste great,” says Jen Cafferty, founder of the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo. “There is nothing like this in the area—a place to sample hundreds of products and discover that special dietary needs and cookies that taste like cardboard are not synonymous.”
A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Gluten Intolerance Group of Greater Dallas (dfwceliac.org).
Admission is $20 adult/$5 children 3-12. Location: 12720 Merit Drive. For more information and tickets, visit gfafexpo.com.
