Come join me at this weekends premiere gluten-free event in San Francisco!
I had the pleasure of being exposed for the 1st time to the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo last year in Chicago at the Nourished Food Blogger Conference in April. I had never been to a gluten-free food expo, so I was really excited to see what products would be available for me to dapple in! Many of the vendors/companies that provided our lunch at the Nourished Food Blogger Conference also participated in the Gluten and Allergen Free Food Expo. Let me just tell you I had one of the most kick-ass gluten free lunches I’d had in some time!
So when the opportunity came up to head to San Francisco for this weekend’s conference I jumped at it for a few reasons. One, I get to attend the expo again and see what new and exciting gluten-free products are coming out on the market. Two, I relocated to Austin, TX from San Francisco 4 years ago and haven’t really been back home as much as I’d like this last year. Three, who doesn’t want to spend a fabulous weekend in San Francisco?
The expo not only will have access to great new gluten-free products, but there is also an opportunity to take classes with some trail blazers from the gluten-free community! Here’s a sneak peak at just some of the classes for Saturday – You can check the full schedule of classes here:
