One of the benefits of writing about fresh, local, gluten-free food for my friends and family is that I often get a heads up about awesome food-related events happening in the area. One such event coming up just around the corner is the GFAF Expo in Raleigh/Durham. I have a few gluten-free expos under my belt and every year they just seem to get bigger and better. This event promises to be amazing.
If you are new to living gluten-free or have been cooking and eating gluten-free for years, attending an expo is a great way to meet other people who share your eating habits, hear what’s new from chefs, food experts, and motivational speakers, and, best of all, test out gluten-free food! At any expo, you can expect to see (and taste!) the big names in gluten-free eating – Udi’s, Rudi’s, Glutino, Enjoy Life – but when you attend a GF expo in the south, you know that it is going to have a southern twist. Like, for example, how about some Bone Suckin Barbecue Sauce? Yup. Local, gluten-free, southern. My kind of food event. (Bonus: Bone Suckin’ Sauce is donating a $3000 prize for the raffle!!)
If you see my little ones sporting new t-shirts proclaiming, “Gluten Makes Me Sick,” you will know where we picked them up… Hope to see you in Durham on August 17th!
