Gluten and Allergen-Free Expo Features All-Star Cast

Choosing gluten and allergen free foods and learning to implement these types of diets can be very tricky. To ease the process, the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo will be jam-packed with experts, information, demos, samples, and 70 vendors from all over the US and Canada from April 29 – May 1 at the Wyndham Lisle Hotel, Lisle, IL.

From quick and easy meal preparation to bread baking, the professional chefs, restaurant owners, cookbook authors, nutritionists and vendors participating in The Gluten & Allergen Free Cook Expo plan to “show and tell” attendees that satisfying their taste buds is entirely possible without many of the common food intolerances that people are faced with every day.
