35th winter fancy food show.
The Gluten Free Lab is heading to the Winter Fancy Food show next Tuesday. This is a three-day event that takes up both halls at the Moscone Center in San Francisco (read: it’s fricking H-U-G-E!), and our goal is to scout out up & coming GF products and to taste as many foods as our bellies will hold. We promise to report back on the most promising finds…but be forewarned: we’ve heard the Italian Cheese department of the food show is rather delicious and rather captivating, so if our GF findings are a little slimmer than you had hoped you’ll know why!
Here’s who’ll be representing from the GF world:
