    I’d love to see you do a regular program on gluten free cooking & baking (strict gluten free, not the fake fad gluten free.) It would help with Celiac awareness (for those who don’t know about it) as well as help Celiacs (or those who are gluten intolerant) manage their disease.

    It is estimated that about 97% of the people who have Celiac disease don’t know it yet. And the only treatment for the disease is eating a STRICT gluten free diet, which can be complicated. A show like this would be huge.

    Fully agree with Debs.

    Spreading awareness about Celiac Disease and gluten-free living is extremely important, as so many people are undiagnosed and complications can be life-threatening.

    What is the name of the beef butcher shop mentioned at the beginning of Mike Colameco’s Real Food epsiode of March 24, 2012?
