The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and CNN Newsroom Anchor Heidi Collins invite you to participate in the Washington, D.C. Gluten-Free Cooking Spree. The Gluten-Free Cooking Spree is an event that joins together the medical and lifestyle aspects of celiac disease to educate both doctors and chefs about celiac disease and
the gluten-free diet.
Here’s how it works:
*Top chefs, doctors and reporters will be put on to teams of three. Each team will have one chef, one doctor and one reporter. Together, the doctor, chef and reporter will work to create the best gluten-free meal.
*A three-person panel will judge recipes. A food critic, a celiac specialist, and a child with celiac disease will make up the panel.
*National and local media will attend and cover the event.
* Winning team will receive a donation made to the hospital that the doctor on the team is affiliated with. All members will also receive a gift basket with a variety of gluten-free goodies!
* Winning team will be featured in National Foundation for Celiac Awareness monthly newsletter and on website www.celiaccentral.org.
**At the event, NFCA will honor Dr. Alessio Fasano from the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research. Dr. Fasano will be one of the expert judges at the event and a donation will be made to support the center's work.
