Gluten Free Garage at Artscape Wychwood Barns

I’m always looking for new gluten-free tricks and treats to make cooking, snacking, and eating out easier. Just yesterday I discovered that my local bakery has amazing gluten-free treats but I had been avoiding it in order to avoid the treats I’m not allowed to have any more! Imagine going to an event or store where you don’t have to read the labels on everything? Well I’ve found just the opportunity:

Gluten Free Garage

Gluten Free Garage is a pop-up market place featuring local merchants, bakeries, and restaurants that cater to gluten-free eating needs. You will be able to enjoy gluten-free food prepared onsite by local chefs, sample and purchase gluten-free food and lifestyle products from vendors, and hear from guest speakers who will speak on their experiences and expertise in gluten-free living and take the chance to chat with local health experts. You can also grab coupons for future #glutenfreegluttony purchases!

Want information about gluten-free living? The Canadian Celiac Association will also be onsite to provide information, resources, and support! Proceeds from all ticket sales ($10 for those aged 12 and up!) go to the Canadian Celiac Association.

Gluten-Free Gluttony with Dishcrawl on St. Clair West

Just over a year ago I went on a Dishcrawl along King Street West in Toronto. Toronto has such a great food and restaurant culture and it was great to share the experience with a group of new friends! But anyone who is eating gluten-free knows that eating out can be a trying experience. Considering banned foods can include soups, salad dressings, french fries and gravy, sometimes finding something edible can become quite the challenge.

You can only imagine my excitement when I saw that Dishcrawl was hosting a gluten-free crawl in the St. Clair West neighbourhood:

Gluten-Free Dishcrawl Restaurants Toronto

This Dishcrawl will feature gluten-free dishes from 4 different restaurants in the St. Clair West neighbourhood of Toronto on March 6, 2013. Have questions for the chefs or owners? They’ll be there to chat with Dishcrawlers and talk about how they incorporate gluten-free offerings into their menus.

Not only is this perfect for those who have chosen to eat gluten-free, but also for people curious about the types of food that us gluten-haters can eat. I’m sure it could inspire some great dishes for my own kitchen, too!
