Have you heard of Gluten Free Garage? It's a one-day event in Toronto that founder RonniLyn Pustil created to give people a taste of gluten-free options in Toronto by bringing over 60 artisanal vendors offering gluten-free products under one roof. We're talking top-quality local gluten-free food, none of that cardboard nonsense. Pustil's mission is to also create awareness about celiac disease, and prove that gluten-free fare can really be delicious!
Gluten-Free Garage began in 2012, but this year is truly special! There will be guest speakers, food trucks, guest speakers and -- get this -- beer and cider tastings! Under one roof, you'll discover local bakeries, caterers, restaurants and retailers that cater to gluten-free needs. You'll be able to sample and purchase gluten-free food, drinks and personal care products. And you'll even be able to learn more about the gluten-free diet and gluten-free cooking/baking from guest speakers Kathy Smart, Ashley Wittig and Marni Wasserman. And the first 500 attendees get a sweet tote bag for all their gluten-free goodies!
