Fancy Food Show Brings Gluten-Free to the Spotlight
Diner's Journal: Healthy, Tasty and Unusual at the Fancy Food Show
By By FLORENCE FABRICANT
Published: June 29, 2010

There used to be a divide between “fancy food” and “health food.” At this year’s Fancy Food Show, which ends its three-day run at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Tuesday, it’s evident that the two categories have seamlessly merged. The words most commonly seen were organic, vegan, whole grain, fair trade, anti-oxidant and gluten-free.

“Judging from this show you’d think the whole world had celiac disease,” said Jennifer Lea Cohan, a publicist who works with the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade, which runs the show.

With direct transportation from NYC, a weekend of worry-free gluten-free meals, and three nights lodging, this sounds like a very exciting weekend getaway. I would definitely attend this event myself, but my sister is due to have her third baby this summer and I am on aunt duty!

We continue to work hard, building relationships with local farmers and food artisans to bring the purest, highest-quality ingredients to the Good Commons table.”

Celiac Disease Awareness Night at Citifield
On Tuesday, May 25th the NY Mets hosted their first, and hopefully annual, Celiac Disease Awareness Night at Citifield. The NY Mets gave their spirit award to Kozy Shack and Randi Albertelli of ROCK-Long Island.

Kozy Shack recently announced that their puddings, flan, and gels are all gluten-free. Before the game, they were even giving out free samples of their gluten-free chocolate and rice pudding in the parking lot. I ate two before I even got in the park. I don't eat pudding a lot, but the chocolate pudding was good. It was also great to see right in front of the Kozy Shack sign the poster announcing Celiac Disease Awareness night and the spirit award recipients, including Kozy Shack.

Raising Our Celiac Kids is a free support group for parents, families and friends of kids on the gluten-free diet for any reason including celiac disease, gluten intolerance, autism, ADD/ADHD, allergies, dermatitis herpetiformis, or personal preference. Their meetings are held in Plainview, NY. Randi had coordinated with Citifield so that a portion of the proceeds from our group sales tickets would go towards the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University. The NYC Celiac Disease Meetup Group sold 74 tickets for this event! This was our largest meetup event ever!

Although the fundraiser and the first annual Celiac Disease Awareness night was more than exciting, it was the gluten-free concession stand that made everyone quite excited. One of our group members had called ahead to tell the stadium that to prepare for a large demand of gluten-free food, but they were really unprepared. The lines for the gluten-free food were longer than other concession stands in the area. Everyone was so excited at the opportunity to eat "normal" food at the ballpark.

I waited until about the 4th inning to go down and enjoy some gluten-free food when I knew the lines wouldn't be so long. I am a rare gluten-free beer drinker, but I bought two Redbridge beers just because I could! For dinner, I got sausage and peppers on a gluten-free hero roll. I was super excited!! The concession stand also sold hotddogs and hamburgers on gluten-free buns. The bread products all come from The Grainless Baker. My friend Dean and I always go to games and I usually end up eating peanuts and Carvel, but this time he laughed as I gorged myself on gluten-free carbs. I was a happy lady.

I love going to Mets games and think Citifield is amazing. This gluten-free concession stand only reinforces my NY Mets fan status. I am going to another game on June 24th and can't wait to enjoy another great night of gluten-free food in the park.

Enjoy the pictures of the first annual Celiac Disease Awareness night at Citifield with the NY Mets below.

Heidi's Gluten-Free Greatness
On June 2, the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group had a summer happy hour at Heather's Bar, one of our favorite locations. The owner Heather stays away from all gluten and carries a few gluten-free beers at her bar as well as potato vodkas. She also has a dedicated tap and line for gluten-free hard cider. This week I had both Bard's Tale and Redbridge during the happy hour.

As an added bonus, nutritionist and baker Heidi Dean and her fiance Phil from Heidi's Gluten-Free Goodness, joined us for happy hour with some samples. Heidi and Phil brought gluten-free brownies, sandwich bread, and pizza. All three were absolutely delicious. "Heidi creates healthy, delicious, fresh-baked gluten-free products using the freshest organic, local ingredients available. She won’t use artificial flavors or preservatives. As a nutritionist, she takes great care to ensure her breads are the healthiest you can buy. As a baker, all of her products are moist, natural and most importantly, they taste great!"

Heidi started baking for her fiance Phil when he was diagnosed with Celiac. Heidi and Phil were disappointed with the quality of gluten-free products on the market, so when Heidi found successful gluten-free recipes she started selling her products. Their products can be found at a few stores in the Hudson Valley and at the Westerly Market in NYC.

Gluten-Free Pizza with garden fresh veggies

Heidi's Sandwich Bread

Mmmm, brownies

I brought a few friends with me to happy hour, including a friend that used to have a professional cake business. She thought Heidi's products were delicious and "didn't have that weird gluten-free texture or taste." I had to agree. Heidi's Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread was moist and didn't crumble like most gluten-free breads tend to do. The brownie were also moist and had just the right amount of chocolate. By far, my favorite was their sun-dried tomato topped pizza. I think Heidi's use of fresh vegetables and edible flowers helped, but the pizza was delicious. The pizza was intentionally served at room temperature/cold, but I think that actually helped enhance its flavor.

I have yet to go to the Westerly Market, but I will be sure to make a trip there on Tuesday or Saturday when Heidi's products are delivered fresh.

Thank you to Heidi and Phil for joining the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup event. They were great company during our happy hour and I wish them the best of luck.

Define Glutard
I found this on Urban Dictionary (a fave!) today after debating the meaning of the word over gluten-free beers last night. I thought it was quite amusing. Sorry for those of you who are easily offended.

Glutard: One who does not possess the enzymes necessary to digest gluten, a main ingredient in wheat products. One who is "glutarded" must only eat gluten-free foods, such as water, tofu, and air.

"Hey, do you want some pasta for dinner?"
"No, sorry, I'm a glutard."
"...what does that mean?"
"It means... I'm glutarded."
"Oh. Okay."
