Gluten Free Expo at the Meadowlands and Amy Fothergill

WOW, what a weekend! On Saturday I went with a friend (and met up with a few others) to the Gluten Free Expo at the Meadowlands. It’s a big event with loads of vendors ranging from well known to just starting out, and they have stands around the expo center that give out samples, talk to you about their products, have some for sale, hand out coupons, and provide take-home info on their products and company.

They even had classes and lectures on gluten free living, baking, hidden sources, etc. We went to the one on gluten free cooking and general tips, given by the author of the cookbook The Warm Kitchen, Amy Fothergill. She was so personable and charismatic, and she was able to answer lots of baking and cooking questions from the audience. There was even a proposal between a gluten free couple, and the guy gave his girlfriend a ring, flowers, and a giant gluten free cupcake! The whole event was extremely successful and loads of fun. I came back with a haul like you wouldn’t believe!

I’m going to post reviews on the samples and products I came home with, so stay tuned for everything from noodles to flours to makeup! Can’t wait to share it all with you!

Keep on living the wheat free life!
