begin on Tuesday, July 27. If you're planning to watch any of the action or attend the autograph sessions at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, know that there are quite a few gluten-free options in the area - a list of restaurants can be found in my post from last July.
I posted my first "Dishing With" profile this week - a Q&A with Monica Glass, the pastry chef at 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge in Center City Philadelphia. Monica was diagnosed with celiac disease last year, but doesn't let it stand in the way of creating wonderful desserts. Please drop me a line to suggest other local chefs, restaurateurs or area personalities for a future "Dishing With" feature.
New to the restaurant page is Mazzella's in Wilmington (729 Philadelphia Pike, 302-762-8722), which now serves Still Riding's gluten-free pizza.
Thanks to reader Amanda T., who tipped me to the fact that Teresa's Cafe in Wayne (124-126 North Wayne Avenue, 610-293-9909) offers gluten-free penne for the pasta dishes. The restaurant's sister Bar Next Door serves Redbridge beer.
Latin tapas restaurant Tinto in Center City has updated its gluten-free menu.
The Grain Exchange's Oatmeal Caramel Delight bars, which I wrote about in April, are available in the frozen-foods section of the North Wales Whole Foods. The bakery's cakes and cupcakes are available at The Lucky Cupcake Company in Pipersville (6011 Kellers Church Road, 267-362-5136), and McCaffrey's in Yardley will begin carrying products in a few weeks.
Everyone have a great weekend!
