    The entire event was fabulous. The informative education from a variety of perspectives made a well rounded lecture forum. A ++ on the vendors. Draegers has excelled at their gluten free room and overall stock...... BUT...you managed to provide tastes from new resources. I absolutely love the "small town" flavor from local entrepreneurs ! Anna's Choice from San Ramon.....David from Second Helping in Pleasanton....and Chamber's Lane organic pâtés were all highlights ! Thank you so much for the education and delightful food options.

    Great info. I am no longer eating gluten at restaurants and that is challenging to find gluten free on menus. If you have a smart phone there are wonderful gluten free apps. I've down loaded 3 already!

    February 26, 2013

  • Patricia L.

    I'm glad that the gluten free event was successful, do you plan to have events at the Draeger's in San Mateo? I live on the pennisula and I'm looking for a gluten free meet-up group in the San Mateo area.

    I want to thank Kim Rice for her wonderful and informative presentation, and also for bringing the incredible Dr. Traver. So much invaluable information I am still studying. Thank you Laura Marshall for introducing us to Dr. Justin Marchegiani. He has answered so many questions for me and all of us...changing my diet again. Steve Yamaguma, your simply beautiful photo journey through Japan, which documented your gluten-free trip, the wonderful people there and the important mission to help the earthquake victims, shows one person can make a difference. Thank You to Marlese who gave us invaluable, easy to understand information about which minerals protect the body from absorbing particular toxins. Thanks to my co-organizer Michelle Carroll who's always 10 steps ahead of me...
    ...And finally thanks to all of you, I really feel blessed to know you. We have a great group!! Mary Claire
