Attention Capital District Crispy Cook Readers:
Price Chopper is hosting a Gluten Free Food Seminar on Wednesday, April 13 from 6-8 pm at their corporate headquarters, 461 Nott Street in Schenectady. The Seminar features samples from various food vendors and cooking demonstrations by Elizabeth Barbone and Amy Rota-Poulin. Nutritionist Ellie Wilson will also be on hand to answer questions. The cost to attend the seminar is $10.
I have raved about Elizabeth Barbone before on The Crispy Cook (we really dig her lemon bars and banana bread) and can highly recommend her Easy Gluten-Free Baking book to you. She really breaks down her recipes into easily understandable steps and doesn't get too wild with funky ingredients you can't find.
I haven't yet met Amy Rota-Poulin, who is a graduate of the prestigious Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island and has become an expert on gluten-free cooking since her husband was diagnosed with gluten intolerance. However, I have enjoyed reading her blog, Gluten Free with Amy, and will have to track down a copy of her new cookbook "Cooking Gluten Free with Amy".
To find out more about this event, contact Maureen Murphy, Manager of Consumer Trends, Nutrition and Lifestyles at 518-379-1617 or send her a $10 check to reserve your spot at 461 Nott Street, Box 204, Schenectady, NY 12308 by April 7.
