Those following a gluten-free diet will want to leave Sunday open. The world's largest gluten-free expo is coming to the Pasadena Convention Center.
There will be sample-doling gluten-free-food vendors, a gluten-free beer garden and demonstrations of gluten-free cooking by former Bon Appetit food editor Kristine Kidd; chef Anna Sobaski; and Alex Thomopolous, host of "Bites & Booze: Gluten Free" on YouTube.
The Celiac Disease Foundation is holding the event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More than 100 exhibitors will participate.
The term "gluten free" may sound like just another food fad highlighted in an aisle at Whole Foods, but it's related to a real medical condition: celiac disease, caused by an adverse reaction to gluten.
There are countless blogs and websites devoted to gluten-free products and recipes, and the diet has gone mainstream. You can even order a gluten-free pizza crust from Domino's.
