The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and CNN Newsroom Anchor Heidi Collins invite you to the Boston Gluten-Free Cooking Spree. The Gluten-Free Cooking Spree is an event that 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 medical support professional. Together, the teams will work to create the best gluten-free meal.
- Attendees will sample the food cooked by the chefs and enjoy a large assortment of other gluten-free food options. Come hungry! All attendees will take home a fabulous goodie bag filled with treats from a variety of gluten-free vendors.
- A three-person panel will judge recipes.
Enjoy gluten-free hor d'oeuvres, desserts, and gluten-free Redbridge beer. Dress code: Business attire

Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Left untreated, people with celiac disease can develop further complications such as other autoimmune diseases, infertility, thyroid disease and some forms of cancer. An estimated 1% of the population has celiac disease, but 83% of those who have it are still undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
The only known treatment for celiac disease is a lifelong adherence to a gluten-free diet.
