The baking class will be held at the Central Market Cooking School.
When: Saturday, June 26, 2010, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. [Read more...]
This Saturday is the first annual Keep Austin Gluten Free Dialogue and Vendor Fair. In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, this event was founded by the wonderful women behind Worldwise Grains, a local company that makes the cereal-like product called Arzu. People’s Rx is also a sponsor, with over 4 locations around Austin; they specialize in compounding medications (gluten-free), vitamins, organic cafes and offer a variety of gluten-free grocery products.
The event will take place between 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Food for Life in Cedar Park. The cost is FREE! Make sure and stop by to meet some of your local gluten-free entrepreneurs and fellow Celiacs! Help raise Celiac awareness for our local gluten-free community, as well as the national gluten-free community. I will be out-of-town because of prior arrangements I made for Memorial Day weekend, but I will be there in spirit!

The first signs of Spring are starting to appear- warmer days (besides the freakish snow storm we had last week!), flowers blooming, birds chirping. It is a beautiful time to be in Austin, Texas. There has been some great news in the gluten-free area of Austin recently. Many places are becoming more gluten-free friendly. Here are some updates on Austin gluten-free news:
Maggiano’s opened up in The Domain this week. They do not have an actual gluten-free menu, but I was told from one of the people at Brinker International that- the Chefs “take pride in creating meals for people with food allergies and Celiac Disease.” They serve a rice pasta as a substitution and may be able to customize dishes to accommodate those with food allergens, such as gluten or nuts.

Udi’s products are found at many places around town such as; Central Market, People’s Rx and Whole Foods. I have found that finding their products is a hit and miss just because they are so popular.
