Gluten Free cooking videos with Top Chef's Hosea Rosenberg and Stephanie Izard

This past weekend I had plans to trek out to Whole Foods in River Forest to see Lisa Cooks Allergen Free's holiday recipes and appetizers cooking demonstration. Unfortunately the event was canceled. Luckily Lisa posted all of her holiday recipes on her website.

Whole Foods must have read my mind about wanting to see a cooking demo in their store, because today I received an email with videos of Top Chef's Hosea Rosenberg and Stephanie Izard with some great recipes and even a special gluten free video. They are definitely worth checking out. I got some great ideas and hope you can find some good recipes too!

This video features some delicious appetizers. Brie with Cardamom-Scented Clementine Chutney*, Pita Chips with Sweet Potato Mash and Smoked Almonds*, and Seafood Cucumber Stacks with Lemon Cream and Chives.

*Please note that these recipes call for gluten containing products. Substitute Glutino Crackers or Schar Table Crackers in the Brie with Cardamom-Scented Clementine Chutney recipe.

*Great pita-chip like gluten free crackers are Nicole's Divine Crackers. Those would work well for the Pita Chips with Sweet Potato Mash and Smoked Almonds recipe. If you can't find those, any gluten free cracker will work in place of the pita chip.

This video doesn't show any recipes, but Hosea gives some great ideas and suggestions for gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian diets. The gluten free and dairy free recipes he mentions can be found online at the Whole Foods website.

Top Chef's Stephanie Izard's Roasted Cauliflower

Chicago's Stephanie Izard also teamed up with Whole Foods to create a yummy gluten free side dish, roasted cauliflower. Looks tasty!

Another tasty thing to do with cauliflower is to roast florets coated in egg, then parmesan. Crispy, golden, fragrant on the outside, soft and tender inside.

Linda, that sounds delicious too! I'm going to have to try that idea out. Thanks!
