Calling all professional chefs! Do you have a signature gluten free recipe you’ve created? We are looking to inspire home cooks that are eating gluten-free, whether it is out of necessity for medical reasons or for those looking for a lifestyle change. Please share your gluten-free recipes with us, and you have a chance to be included in the Gluten-Free Chef’s Challenge Cookbook*.
We are now accepting recipes from chefs. They must be original and cannot have been published elsewhere. Submitted recipes will be judged by a professional panel selected by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA). The top 100 recipes will be tested by a team of chefs and printed in the cookbook.
Winning recipe authors will also receive a copy of the cookbook. Once the book is released to the public, participating chefs will be free to promote their participation.
