Aug 7th: Save the Date!

Meet the Author of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook
SAVE THE DATE! The Sacramento area chapter of the Celiac Sprue Association, in conjunction with the Davis subchapter, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, welcomes Elana Amsterdam, to the combined support group meeting August 7th, held at the Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 317 East 8th Street, Davis, from 12:30 to 3:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Elana Amsterdam is the author of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook and a popular blog, Elanaspantry.com. Elana switched career paths from an environmental consultant with her own firm, to a gluten-free chef when her son was diagnosed with celiac disease. With a three-year study of ayurvedic cooking, Elana utilized her knowledge to make gluten-free food that tasted like regular food. Elana’s cooking might not be complex, but actually taste good and is good for you. This passion led her from blog to book, with the publication of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.

Come prepared. Pick up one or more copies of Elana’s cookbook to be autographed during the meeting at Gluten Free Specialty (2612 J Street, Sacramento, CA 916-442-5241). Phone orders are welcome. If you can’t make it to the store, you may preorder and prepay over the phone and have the book delivered to you at the meeting. Elana’s flour of choice, pure almond flour from blanched almonds (not almond meal), is also available. With both in hand, be inspired and head home to start cooking.

Experienced celiacs are welcome to bring snacks to share at the meeting. And if you’re able to pick up the cookbook ahead of time, why not try your hand with one of her recipes, and bring some tasty treats to share. Please bring a copy of your recipe for those with multiple allergies.
