The second Coeliac Society (SANT) expo, Gluten Matters, was a great success. I saw and met many more exhibitors than in 2015, especially local businesses. It’s a good sign that Adelaide is becoming more aware of the gluten problem and is offering more gluten-free alternatives.

Walking through the aisles, we were overwhelmed by the inviting aromas coming from the stands, as operators prepared samples for tasting.  Believe me, there was so much choice that it was impossible to taste everything!

The event is run completely by volunteers and is a huge undertaking. The organising committee from Coeliac Society SANT, headed by Susanne Flint, did an amazing job – showing that love and understanding helps all of us to reach our goals.  Well done!

And now, a few photos (and a BIG thank you to Nadia Gaggioli for the fabulous pictures!).

WILDE beer
One of the nice things about cooking in an environment so full of aromas and colours is that you can create a new recipe on the spot. Here, WILDE beer takes the place of wine – and it gave the dish a wonderful taste!
