Gluten-Free Dish Knocks Out the Competition

Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center’s gluten-free crab cake dish won “Best Entrée” in a cooking competition, rising above every gluten-containing entry.

On June 23, 2015, WHYY TV 12, a Philadelphia-based non-profit station, hosted a cooking competition fundraiser. Drexelbrook Catering & Special Events Center, accredited through the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness’ (NFCA) GREAT Kitchens training program, blew the competition out of the water when its gluten-free dish took home the coveted “Best Entrée” prize.

Congratulations to the Drexelbrook team!

The winning dish was gluten-free Crab Cakes served over a Summer Aztec Rice Blend and topped with a Spicy Avocado Aioli.
