Review: University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center Annual Spring Flours Benefit

Saturday, May 14th was an evening of fabulous food and fundraising for the University of Chicago’s Celiac Disease Center at the 10th Annual Spring Flours Benefit which was held at the Swissôtel in downtown Chicago. The center is completely funded by donations and this event it vital in keeping the center at the forefront of celiac research, education and advocacy.

The event began with a presentation of the celiac Iceberg Award to the founder of the Center, Stefano Guandalini, MD., with the help of Amy Lukas, one of the very first celiac patients in the clinic. This was followed by silent and live auction events and unlimited dinning possibilities.

Over 30 of the top restaurants in Chicago were in attendance serving delicious individual dishes from the restaurants’ gluten-free offerings.

Some of the highlights of the this epicurean extravaganza included:
