Come See Me and the New Food Allergy Section at Caputo’s

I am pleased to announce that Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets has been working very hard to stock up their Gluten/Allergen Free offerings and much of that effort is thanks to Linda and Karen at Sample More Green, a food brokerage that focuses on quality health products for grocery stores. Linda, a food allergy sufferer herself is working in the aisles with the store management to make sure all the products you want and need are readily available at Caputo’s six suburban locations.

To kick off these new product offerings, Angelo Caputo’s Bloomingdale store is hosting a big sampling event of the products they carry from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, June 6th and I will also be on hand to do demos for great barbeque and picnic options from 1-2:30 p.m. During this summer season of parties and picnics, where allergens are everywhere, what is an allergenista to do? Join me as I prepare a buffet of dishes to bring to picnics to make sure you and your family stay safe & sound.This 90 minute session will cover the basics of allergen-free living and cooking. You learn to make:

- Fresh tomato Bruschetta topped with basil and grated parmesan cheese on toasted bread
- Quinoa Pasta with the season’s finest sautéed squash, zucchini and cherry tomatoes
- Traditional, old-fashion sloppy joes (avoid grill cross contamination with this kid favorite, they will never miss a thing off the grill)
- Vanilla cake served with fresh strawberry sauce

Yes, samples will be available for all!

Try products from these brands loved by allergenistas:
- Yoga Vibe
- Real Foods
- Hippie Chips
- Better Batter
- Lundberg
- Boar's Head
- Pirate Brands
- Green Mountain Flavors
- Schar
- Kay's Natural
- Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pasta
- Peggy's Pepper Jelly
- Bob's Red Mill and many more!

It’s going to be a great event hope to see you there! Sign up for this “under the tent” event by calling Caputo’s at 630-924-0900.

It makes me so happy to see grocers address our needs, our voice as a community is being heard!
