Donna & Heather's Blog - We Attended the New England Celiac Conference

by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt

Hi Everyone,


Hope everyone has had a wonderful Fall season so far - we recently had the pleasure of attending The New England Celiac conference in late October.


New England in autumn was absolutely magnificent – around every bend in the road, the trees were  at their best even in late October when we drove down to Norwood Mass. to the New England Villi Expo. The day was well organized as over 700 people streamed through the door. An appetizing breakfast buffet greeted them as did the many friendly volunteers. Our booth was located near the door to the auditorium and we were able to talk with everyone as they entered to hear the speakers. We had the opportunity to introduce our newest book “the Gluten-Free Baking Book with 250 small batch recipes.  Among many others, we met a wonderful young celiac who will be off to college in the near future. He and his Mom both wanted to tell us how much they learned from and appreciated the extra information on gluten-free grains, flours etc. as well as the glossaries in our books.


We heard so many rave reviews from many of the attendees even asking when the next Expo will be held as they wanted to attend and didn’t want to have to be on the waiting list.  After attending the event we can certainly understand why.... it's a wonderful conference and we encourage everyone in the New England area to stay tuned for details on next year's event.  You won't be disappointed!


All our best,


Donna and Heather
