The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo April 14 - 15

I am so excited to have the honor of participating in the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo. It is proudly presented by Living Without Magazine and starts this Saturday at the Westin Lombard with the Nourished Food Bloggers conference. Over 100 vendors sampling and selling products will be present plus, cooking classes and informational sessions. All items are gluten-free and everything is labelled with allergen-containing ingredients.

Here is a little sample from the press release:

Do you want to learn how to cook and bake on a restricted diet? Sign up for our weekend demonstration cooking/baking classes. The classes are taught by top chefs, nutritionists and cookbook authors in a friendly environment. You will watch how to prepare all of the recipes, get to taste all of the recipes, and have time to ask questions of the presenters. Your cooking class ticket also allows you access to the 100+ table vendor fair (a $20 value).
Note:  These classes are demonstration classes not hands-on classes.
