Living Without has teamed up with Jen Cafferty, nationally recognized expert on cooking and living gluten-free, on this Expo, the country’s premier gluten and allergen-free event.
Living Without’s editors and writers will be on-site at the vendor fair, leading gluten-free/allergen-free cooking demonstrations, meeting guests, answering questions and distributing free copies of their popular magazine.
“We’re thrilled to be uniting with Jen Cafferty to help thousands of people learn more about adapting to an allergen-free way of life, while still enjoying tasty, healthy foods,” said Alicia Woodward, Editor of Living Without. “This Expo features a variety of experts, valuable information about great tasting specialty products, cooking and baking tips, recipes, and much more.”
The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo is home to the Midwest’s largest gluten free vendor fair featuring the tastiest gluten free cuisines and allergy free foods in the marketplace. More than 70 vendors will be showcasing and sampling their products. The vendor fair also features a designated nut-free area, kids’ activities and performers.
This year’s Expo will feature a variety of cooking and baking classes taught by well-respected chefs, nutritionists and cookbook authors, who will offer tips for preparing gluten free/allergen free meals and snacks.
