Ms. Michelle’s Urban Gourmet of Bayport hosts a gluten-free edition of The Cortland’s “Brew & Chew” on Saturday, 4/30 (5:00PM – 7:00PM).

Four brews (Green’s, St.Peter’s G-Free, Redbridge, Estrella Daura) will be paired with artisanal dishes prepared by chef Michelle Gillette, who plans to open her gluten-free eatery in May.

Gillette will also be in attendance to discuss the benefits of a gluten-free lifestyle.

Gillette: “I will be pairing the beers with a cold noodle dish, baked clams, a rustic sandwich toast, and a sweet to end off the tasting. Many people strive to find good gluten-free pasta and breads and find it quite difficult. I take pride in showing that gluten-free food can taste just as good as people wish them to be.”

Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat, barley, rye and malts, and is found in products like bread, pasta, and…beer.
