The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and CNN Newsroom Anchor Heidi Collins invite you to the Philadelphia Gluten-Free Cooking Spree. The event 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, Dr. Ritu Verma from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and a child with celiac disease will make up the panel.

* Guests will enjoy heavy appetizers donated by the Hyatt Penn’s Landing and other area gluten-free vendors, desserts, Redbridge beer and wine.

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.
