The DC Gluten-Free Expo was a blast yesterday. There were the fabulous educational sessions that covered topics ranging from how to best set up your kitchen to upcoming advancements in gluten-free healthcare. There were also a plethora of vendors offering tons of gluten-free goodies like cake pops, sauces, cookies, chips, pretzels and more. There were even new gluten-free entrepreneurs debuting new inventions like apps that will convert recipes to gluten-free offerings.
My favorite part of the day though was meeting celebrity chef Jilly Lagasse. Most know her for her Food Network chef father, Emeril Lagasse, but Jilly has been climbing the ranks in the gluten-free industry and is now debuting a new gluten-free cookbook with her sister, Jessie Lagasse Swanson.
Big Flavor, Bold Taste - and No Gluten covers a wide range of cuisines incorporating their time living all over the world. There are British comfort food recipes from Jilly's time in London, a bunch of Southern comfort food recipes honoring their upbringing and even some fun New Orleans inspired recipes.
Overall, I am beyond excited to try some of these recipes in my own kitchen and I can't wait to share my efforts with you in more detail soon. I also want to thank Jilly for taking time in the midst of the craziness yesterday to meet with us. It was so much fun comparing our gluten-free journeys and sharing stories about East coast winter transitions. To try the Lagasse Girl's book for yourself click the link here for more information.
