Gluten-Free Cooking Spree

The Gluten-Free Cooking Spree is an event that joins together the medical and lifestyle aspects of celiac disease. The event began as a partnership between the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, the Drexel University School of Public Health and the Drexel University School of Hospitality Management in an effort to educate people about the wonderful world of gluten-free cooking.

NFCA paired culinary arts students with prominent physicians from nine hospitals in the Philadelphia area and taught them basic lessons about celiac disease and how to prepare gluten-free meals. After the training, the doctors partnered with students to compete in developing gluten-free recipes and preparing the delicious results. George Perrier of Le Bec-Fin and Christina Pirello, host of Christina Cooks, judged the food entries on taste and presentation. The winning team received a cooking lesson from George Perrier.

People who attended the event were able to watch the teams prepare their recipes and enjoyed a variety of gluten-free food and drinks from local vendors.

In 2007, NFCA will host seven cooking sprees in cities across the country. They will be in:

New York City


Washington, D.C.



San Francisco

St. Louis

For Gluten-Free Cooking Sprees in 2007, NFCA will pair doctors with top chefs in each city and have them compete to develop and cook the best gluten-free meal. Culinary students will assist each team.

Profits from the event will support the NFCA national awareness campaign. A donation will also be made to the hospital that the winning team's doctor is affiliated with and to the local support group will receive funding that is designated for celiac awareness programming.
