Thousands of avid gardeners attending this year’s Queensland Garden Expo are in for a treat with local gluten and grain free guru, Tania Hubbard making a special appearance to share her love and knowledge of gluten and grain free living.
The expo will be held at the Nambour Showgrounds, Coronation Avenue, Nambour from Friday, 6th to Sunday, 8th July from 8am daily.
Tania will be presenting three, special one-hour cooking demonstrations at the Gardener and Gourmet stage, using fresh local and homegrown produce to create some of her delicious gluten and grain free recipes, as well as showcasing her cookbook.
“I will be using lovely extras like raw lentils to make a high protein seasonal salad along with fresh avocado, cocoa and chia seeds for my divine chocolate dessert everyone will love,” Tania said.
Tania began her gluten and grain free journey several years ago when she was diagnosed intolerant to the proteins found in cereal grains. Determined to continue enjoying food, Tania went on to develop her own recipes and write a leading cookbook, gluten free grain free – food we love.
Tania said I created the book because I recognised a need for foods that tastes great, are nutrient dense and provide a wider benefit to people other than just being gluten-free.
“I wanted to help people understand that living gluten and grain free does not mean giving up nutrients or taste,” Tania said.
“People no longer want empty fillers and binders to make up the bulk of their gluten and grain free foods, they are seeking the combination of taste, texture and nutrition”.
“And the best way to get nutrients is from locally grown, fresh, organic produce that you can source from your local farmers market or even better, grow in your own backyard,” Tania said.
Tania’s cookbook will be available for sale at the Expo and is packed with over 150 pages or mouth-watering recipes, information about stocking a gluten and grain-free pantry, label reading and much more.
Since its launch in 1984, the Expo has grown to become a key event on the Sunshine Coast’s calendar, attracting over 30,000 visitors from across Queensland and interstate last year.
With hundreds of exhibitors participating, the Expo offers plenty of things to see and do including free lectures and demonstrations, landscape garden displays, plant clinics, gardening advice, floral art displays and a playground area just for kids.
Tickets to the Expo start at $16 for adults, $14 for concession and children under 15-yeras are free. Plus, just by attending the expo, you will go in the draw to win an amazing seven-night holiday to Bali or a three-night getaway to Hamilton Island.
