Here are a few cool things going on in the gluten free scene here in DC, as well as a few new finds around the district!
1. Tickets are on sale for the DC gluten free expo in June!
I’m already pumped for the gluten free expo! It’s June 15th at the Four Points Sheraton, and will have 70 vendors sharing delicious gluten free treats! Tickets are only $15 and you can buy them here! (All proceeds from the event will benefit the patients and families of the Celiac Disease Program at Children’s National Medical Center).
2. Ripple in Cleveland Park opens Sugar Magnolia bakery and has gluten free ice cream sandwiches!
Last week my favorite wine bar, Ripple, opened a small bake shop attached to the restaurant. I stopped in and they actually have a bunch of gluten free options! When I went they were out of meringue cookies – but usually they have the cookies, and use them to make ice cream sandwiches!
Cocoa meringue with salted caramel toffee ice cream? Yes please.
They did have brownies when I was there that are made with almond flour and gluten free. Mmm…chocolicious.
4. Custom Choice cereal available at Dean and Deluca
I found this delicious looking cereal at Dean and Deluca in Georgetown (also home to the best mocha you’ve ever drank). At $9 a bag it was a bit too expensive for my blood, but certainly looks good! I feel like if you’re going to pay that much, you might as well go create your own mix on their website though (which seems to be broken right now).
5. My friend makes the biggest falafel sandwich ever created at Amsterdam Falafel
I can’t confirm, but I believe this to be the largest falfel pita sandwich ever constructed. It’s like it’s a volcanic eruption of toppings.
There you have it! The latest and greatest from the city that
never sleeps goes to bed at a reasonable hour so we can change the world in the morning :)
