How to sign up for “Cooking with Antonio” at Choices

Choices Market LogoWe had a call from Choices who have been doing a great job of promoting our Gluten-Free Expo next Saturday at the Delta Grand as well as a special session “Cooking with Antonio” that will be held at Choices Friday morning.

Apparently there is some confusion about how people can sign up “Cooking with Antonio” so here’s the scoop:

“Cooking with Antonio” is an optional session of the Canadian Celiac Association National Conference in Kelowna next weekend.  You do NOT need to attend the conference to just attend the “Cooking with Antonio“.

To sign up for “Cooking with Antonio”, complete our conference registration form and just check off “Cooking with Antonio” as the session you want to attend.

We are also offering an optional session called “The Art of Gluten Free“.  It’s lead by two Kelowna dietians and it is perfect for new comers to the gluten-free diet.

There is limited space in each session so be sure to sign up soon to avoid disappointment.

See more details about these optional sessions after the break.

Optional Friday Event – Cooking with Antonio

Antonio Cerullo is Choices Markets’ Executive Chef. Choices is one of Kelowna’s largest health food stores. After running a successful fine dining restaurant on the shores of Lago di Como in Italy, a love of the outdoors and healthy living brought Antonio to Choices. Antonio is always cooking up a storm; when he is not developing delicious dishes for Choices Markets’ deli, he is creating recipes for newsletters, cookbooks and his wildly successful cooking classes. This 10 am – 2 pm session includes breakfast, transportation to and from Choices, the cooking class, goodie bags, a store tour, and samples of Antonio’s creations. Registration is $50. Limit 40.

Co-presenting the seminar are Mavis Molloy and Mary Hicks, clinical dietitians at Kelowna General Hospital. The seminar is Friday 8:30 am – 1 pm and includes breakfast, lunch and nutrition breaks.

Volunteers needed for Kelowna 2012

by Irene Thompson – President Kelowna Chapter
Once again “hello” to everyone!

Irene ThompsonI hope that you are enjoying the nice days that we have had. May is here and as you all know this is Celiac Awareness Month. This year our awareness is focused on getting information out to all the dentists.

Marie has sent out the information via e-mail to you and I would request that you take this information to your dentist ASAP along with information about the conference. We have a dentist speaking at our conference and this would be a great opportunity to hear just how celiac disease affects our teeth. I will also print off the information so that the members that do not have e-mail can have a copy.

We will need your help with the Conference so please we need you to volunteer to help. I will have sign-up sheets at the potluck as will Moyra so please pitch in and help.

David, Moyra, Jessica, Ann and I as well as others have been working very hard to make this conference a success however we can’t do it all we are counting on you.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone once again Sunday (May 6th) as well as looking forward to our potluck lunch it is always a treat.

A friend is a present which you give yourself (Robert Louis Stevenson)
