Gluten Free Food and Allergy Show

I came across this great post during the week on Confessions of a Food Nazi . Nothing annoys me more than people who think Coeliac disease is a fad or just a diet that you're taking to stand out from the crowd. Usually those people have no idea what Coeliac disease is. Luckily that's changing a lot in the food industry, thanks in a large extent to the great work that organisations like the Coeliac Society are doing.

There are also loads more gluten free products on the market now, available at local supermarkets all over Australia. Which leads me to the Gluten Free Food & Allergy Show, running at the convention centre next weekend, 17 & 18 May 2008. Its a great way to find out about new things that are available, try a whole lot of gluten-free food and attend seminars that run throughout the day. Tickets are $14, but its free for children 12 and under. There is plenty more information on their website.

I'll definitely be going along, and then heading over the road to Paniyiri for some delicious Greek food to round out the day.
