"A celiac and gluten-free diet conference on June 19 will feature Dr Tennyson from Columbia Celiac Disease Center in NYC; Shelley Case, RD, dietitian and author of Gluten-Free Diet; Chef Richard Coppedge from the Culinary Institute of America and Elizabeth Barbone, author of Easy Gluten-Free Baking. The conference is located in the beautiful Adirondacks on St. Regis Lake at Paul Smith's College. In addition to a great conference program you can also enjoy taking a guided walking tour or paddle on the lake. What could be better- education, great food, meeting new friends and enjoying the wonders of the outdoors!"
Kathy, a reader in Montreal, visited New York a few weeks ago, and wrote to tell me about a restaurant she’d enjoyed: Emporio. She described it as having a “great GF menu, helpful staff and wonderful atmosphere.” I haven’t tried it yet but plan to.
The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University will be conducting a Family Screening on Sunday, October 14th, at Rye High School, Rye, NY.
The Screening will take place at the Colin Leslie Walk for Celiac Disease.
This is a great opportunity to have your family members screened! Please remember that even asymptomatic family members may have celiac disease. The longer a person goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater the chance of developing complications.
Registration for the Family Screening is $25 per person. Pre-registration by October 1st is required, and must be made online at www.celiacdiseasecenter.org .
All registrations for the Walk and/or Family Screening include admission to the vendor fair and educational lectures by Peter Green, MD, Anne Roland Lee, RD and Amy DeFelice, MD. Lunch will be available, supplied by Soul Dog, a participating restaurant of the Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program.

From the celiac listserv today: Curly's in Lackawanna, near Buffalo:
We were in the Buffalo area earlier this week and ate at Curley's in Lackawanna. It was wonderful!! The items on the menu which can be prepared gluten-free are starred. The waitperson knew all about cross-contamination, etc. The food is great and, be ready, the portions are large. I had pork tenderloin which was excellent; the serving was so large I had to take some home with me.
