Gluten-Free Philadelphia: Drexel University Culinary Event

0 Comments 13 April 2009

DREXEL UNIVERSITY’S ACADEMIC BISTRO TO HOST

CELIAC AWARENESS EVENT

 

When: April 16, 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Where: Academic Bistro – 33rd and Arch Streets – 6th floor

Tickets: $35

Join Drexel’s Culinary and Hospitality students and faculty for a night of gluten-free food, drinks, and desserts as you learn about the challenges of living with celiac disease. Celiac disease is caused by a reaction to gliadin, a gluten protein found in wheat. The only effective treatment is a lifelong gluten-free diet.

Local doctors will discuss health and dietary concerns related to the disease, while local chefs will pair up with students to create gluten-free hors d'oeuvres-size specialties and explain how to cook healthy and delectable dishes for those who suffer from the disease. Whole Foods gluten-free products will also be featured.

Chefs attending the event will include:

Scott Schroeder – South Philly Tavern

Mike Stollenwerk – Little Fish (voted one of the country’s top fish restaurants by Saveur, Bon Appetit and Esquire magazines)

Christina Pirello – Host of PBS's "Christina Cooks"

And more!

Drexel is a proud sponsor of the National Foundation For Celiac Awareness.
