Presenter(s): Bill Bradley

Class:"Gluten Free at the Grocery Store" If you are shifting toward eating gluten free, your grocery shopping experience will change...if it has not already! The most important part of gluten free shopping is equipping yourself with new knowledge. Join Stop & Shop nutritionist on a walk through the grocery store with easy to follow tips in each department. She will highlight how to eat gluten free on a budget, plan balance meals and must-have gluten free products to add into your weekly shopping list.


Presenter(s): Oonagh Williams

Class:"The Power of Food – The best medicine or the worst poison for your body." Chef Oonagh is not going to push a raw food diet (with NE winters, get real), or have you give up your favorite foods (as if we would want to). Chef Oonagh will help you understand how the food you commonly eat can be causing other problems - beyond high cholesterol, but including arthritis, female problems, headaches, diabetes, fatigue etc. Chef Oonagh will explain the new FDA proposed food labeling; is GMO a good thing?; soy and corn everywhere; how much sugar is too much sugar?; all the new cooking oils, new sugars, new grains, trans fat, hydrogenated, "fat free"; and the increasing number of food allergies, not just gluten free.


Presenter(s): Robert Landolphi

Class:“So Many Flours, So Little Time” Chef Rob will discuss the variety of gluten free flours available on the market today, how to blend them correctly, and the nutritional value of each one. This class will equip you with the knowledge to make your gluten free culinary experiences simple, easy, and very delicious.
