Kristine Kidd

Topic: Whole Grain and Naturally Gluten-Free Baking
Time: 03:10-04:00 pm
Location: Lecture Room

As the former food editor for Bon Appetit magazine, when Kristine came down with Celia disease, she was determined to eat as well as she always had. For her that means fresh, whole foods. However, many gluten-free baked goods are coarse, dry and lacking in good flavor, and most recipes rely on nutritionally empty white starches.

Kristine will talk about creating baked goods that are not only delicious because they are gluten free, but they are fabulous, for anyone. She creates wonderful desserts that never included gluten—items like crisp meringue nests filled with fresh fruit, billowy Pavlovas topped with whipped cream and berries, nut tortes layered with lemon curd, flourless chocolate cakes, and comforting puddings. Amazing pastries and artisanal style breads can be made featuring flavorful and nutrition-packed gluten-free whole grains like cornmeal, sorghum, buckwheat, oats, millet and more. Learn about these ingredients and techniques from Kristine.

Theresa Nicassio PhD

Topic: Out of the Shadows: The Unspoken Social and Emotional Challenges of Living with Food Sensitivities
Time: 12:50-01:50 pm
Location: Lecture Room

While there are the obvious physical issues and risks associated with living with allergies and other food sensitivities, the emotional and social challenges that go along with learning you need to “live without” certain foods can be equally difficult. These challenges are present for everyone who discovers they are unable to enjoy certain foods, and this can be especially poignant for youth and young adults. Navigating relationships (like dating and spontaneous fun activities with friends) can be hard enough, but when food restrictions are added to the mix, the stress associated with not feeling “normal” drives many into the shadows. This talk is an opportunity to begin to bring into the light greater understanding around this topic, so that our community can initiate a new paradigm of greater inclusivity and empowerment for all who are touched by the need for special diets.
