Barb, Lynn, and Marc expressed their satisfaction with Amazon.com as a source for bulk gulten-free products. Barb had purchased a case of Gultino pretzels which she shared at $5.20 a bag compared to $7.79 if purchased locally. Lynn had purchased a case of Glutino bread sticks which she shared at $4.43 per box. Barb talked about the advantages of setting up a subscription with Amazon.com which include no shipping charges. Marc will be placing an order for Tinkyada pasta (angel hair and penne) which he will distribute at the July meeting. Anyone interested not at the meeting who is interested in purchasing from this order, please send a comment to the blog.
Barb announced that New Frontiers will be closing Sunday May 18 and reopening at their new location on Butler on Wednesday May 21. Lynn noted that the Farmers Market on Fourth street is beginning to carry gulten-free products.
Marc is exploring the possibility of having the June meeting at Pesto Brothers restaurant in the Old Town Shops/Heritage Square. He has talked with the owner/chef there who expressed interest in preparing gluten-free food for us. More details to follow.
