Gluten-Free Articles from NYC to Alcatraz

Rosemary Black's Daily News article "Eating gluten-free will help combat celiac disease" (October 6, 2008) offers an overview of celiac disease and notes the arrival of a new book, Gluten-Free Baking with The Culinary Institute of America. The article includes a recipe for a gluten-free Red Velvet Cake from the book, which is written by CIA chef Richard J. Coppedge with a foreword by Foods by George entrepreneur George Chookazian.

And Newsday recently ran the Merle English article "Man swims off Alcatraz for sister with celiac disease" (October 12, 2008), which describes how Great Neck gastroenterologist David Milkes dedicated his August 2008 "Alcatraz Challenge" swim to raising awareness about celiac disease. His sister suffered troubling symptoms for three years before his partner Chaim Abittan diagnosed her with celiac disease. Milkes raised more than $5,000 with his swim and donated the dough (gf, of course) to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University (CDCCU).

So please note that David Milkes and Chaim Abittan are two Long Island doctors who seem to know their celiac stuff.
