On this episode I’m at the Gluten Free Garage, which is large food show in Toronto. I’ve attended the show previously with the podcast, but this year, I was helping at the booth for the Canadian Celiac Association. The CCA booth was a place for attendees to drop off gluten free food donations. This is something that was done in previous years by Jessica Danford, but she wasn’t able to be at the event this year, and the CCA was happy to help. If you would like more information on gluten free food donation, visit the CCA’s website www.celiac.ca and search Save Me For Gluten Free.
I took the opportunity at the food show to speak with some of the interesting people I met.
I spoke with Carmen Luongo from Shar Gluten Free and he was able to let us in on some new upcoming products. I highly recommend their Twin Bar – each package contains three packs of two bars.
I met Robyn Harrison of Robyn’s Gluten Free Baking Courses. You can find out more about Robyn at www.glutenfreebakingcourses.com.
Gaston spoke with me about celiac research being done at McMaster University. You can find out more and sign up for their research newsletter at www.mcmasterceliacclinic.ca/research.
It was great to see Josh from the Bakery at St. Anne’s Spa at the show. I’ve been to the bakery in the past, and everything I tried there was terrific. You can find out more about the spa at www.steannes.com.
Terry from the restaurant Riz was excited to tell me about Riz moving to a new location with an expanded gluten free menu. The new location will be opening in the next few weeks. Their website is www.rizglutenfree.com.
Gluten Free Fest is a Food Show being put on by The Gluten Free Collective in Kitchener Waterloo on September 18th. You can find out more at www.glutenfreefest.ca.
I met Vanessa Sarraino who has just released a new cookbook called Celiac Sweeties. You can find out more at www.vanessacarraino.com or to order the book, you can call her directly at 647 654-0023.
It was nice for me to catch up with Derek from Camp Celiac. Last year, I helped out with the food and menu for camp and I’m looking forward to the kids coming again this year. Space for this special camp is filling up fast. You can find out more at www.celiaccamp.ca.
