Gluten Free Cooking Spree

As someone who is learning the nuances and intricacies of the gluten free diet from my girlfriend, I am always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to make gluten free foods and incorporate them into our daily routine. Not only is this event going to have some of the best chefs in the area competing to make delicious foods, but they are all gluten free and we get to taste them and see them in action!

I usually pass on going to the Taste of "Choose your city" events, simply because it is a lot to pay in order to sample some of the typical restaurants in the area. However, the Gluten Free Cooking Spree is completely unique. Its difficult to go out to restaurants, not knowing what is in the sauces, etc of everything on the menu. Well, it will be nice to sample fine dining and not have to think twice to determine if there is any gluten in there. Stay tuned for the review...

Portobello, Arugala and Sundried Tomatoes Pizza

Using the Whole Foods frozen pizza dough ball, i flattened it out and spread tomato paste. Then I added shredded mozarella cheese, then topped with portobella mushrooms, arugula, and sundried tomatoes and this is what I got:

What I would change is not buying the already dried sundried tomatoes, or at least cook them under the cheese. They got a little hard to chew after baking in the oven for 15 minutes.

The most delicious sandwich

I had written this post a couple weeks ago and forgot to post it. So here it is, the most delicious sandwich!

Toasted Glutino Corn Bread
Smoked Turkey Slices

Tastes like a REAL sandwich. The Glutino Corn Bread is my new favorite thing. Possibly one of the best gluten-free sandwich breads that I have ever tasted.

Not too dense and just enough chew. I love it.
