All locations will offer free tastings and demos from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. featuring a variety of delicious gluten-free foods from more than 15 vendors, including eight Utah’s Own companies. Our dietitians will offer free workshops about living a healthy gluten free lifestyle and our Cooking School Chefs will conduct free cooking demonstrations and samples. All three locations will also offer a hands-on gluten free cooking class the evening of the event – visit the Great Health Calendar or the Cooking School Calendar to register.
