----- ON, Canada - 5K/1 Mile Halloween-themed running

Thought you might be interested! Our 5K/1 Mile Halloween-themed running events in Oakville, Ontario, Canada (Friday, October 18th) and Collingwood, Ontario, Canada (Saturday, October 19th) accommodate gluten free and Celiac individuals by providing a special gluten-free candy bag. This enables individuals and families who are gluten-intolerant to participate in our race and enjoy the full spectrum of activities (most notably, gorging on copious amounts of Halloween candy!). I’m not aware of other races that are doing this. Thought it might be of interest to you or your fans.

Here’s a bit of more general information about our race:

On Friday, October 18th Trek or Treat, Canada’s original night trail run, returns to Oakville for its 8th year and Collingwood for the 2nd time. Weave your way through darkened trails where the only light ahead is the glow of your headlamp or flashlight and the pumpkin kilometer markers. Spooky displays, giant Halloween inflatables and hundreds of runners in costume set the stage for the Halloween-iest run of the season! Enjoy free pizza, hot chocolate, face painting, professional family/running group photos and candy stations along the route. There is a 5K run/walk and a Creepy Mile – perfect for parents and their little ghouls. More information is available at www.trekortreat.ca

Here are the details of our “gluten-free” bags:

Thanks for the great information you provide!

----- Vermont Holiday Cooking Culinary Vacation


Holiday Cooking with a Twist
3 day vacation October 18, 19, 20

Lots of people either feel anxious about holiday cooking, or are stuck in a rut. During this three day vacation, we'll move you forward into pleasure and excitement. When guests arrive on Friday afternoon, we'll jump right into cooking that anticipates Christmas by making a Gingered Winter Squash and Coconut Soup, Risotto of Wild Mushrooms, Roast Pork stuffed with Armagnac and Prunes, Watercress and Orange Salad, and a Roulage Leontine (a very impressive kind of Buche de Noel, or Chocolate Rolled Christmas Log Cake filled with Whipped Cream), along with Meringue Mushrooms.

On Saturday after a buffet breakfast, and before and after a light lunch, we'll start to make an entire Thanksgiving meal, cooking Spiced Sweet Toasted Walnuts, Fresh Ravioli with Winter Squash and Fried Sage, Ancho Turkey with Coffee Sauce and Wild Rice Stuffing, Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry and Fig Chutney, Pumpkin Pie with a Candied Ginger and Graham Cracker Crust, and an outstanding Vermont Apple Pie.

Sunday morning will feature a brunch of local eggs, bacon and maple syrup, along with our own pies.

By the time the weekend is over, everyone will know how to make every dish and will have gained knife skills, sure-fire pie crust ability, a deep understanding of ingredients and how they function (and what to substitute, and why), along with lots of confidence in their ability to make outstanding food.

You will also have learned to make a range of good gifts meringue mushrooms, candied spiced nuts, cranberry and fig chutney that will serve you well for the holiday season.

Vacations are always completely gluten free, taught by James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Deborah Krasner, who is also celiac.

October vacations always sell out fast, so if you are interested, do register early.
