Ganyard Hill Farm, 319 Sherron Road, Durham, NC

Debbie is a registered nurse with bachelor of science in nursing, and certified holistic health coach in integrative medicine. If there is one thing that the food sensitive community can agree on, it is that there is no ‘one-size fits all’ approach to eating and health maintenance. Debbie knows the benefits in tailoring an approach to optimal health and will be discussing topics related to navigating the transitions.

Howdy Gluten-Free Friends!
The time is quickly approaching, and since we enjoy being neighbors, allow us to begin introductions to some of the lovely people involved in our fun fair!
Cameo Edwards has made quite a wonderful name for herself as the owner of the premier gluten-free bakery Crave, in San Francisco.
We are so excited about her speaking at the fair! Cameo is originally from North Carolina, and fortunately for us, moved back to enjoy the burgeoning food scene here.
Think you’re alone?
She’s going to share more about her journey, entrepreneurship as a gluten-free baker, offer some good advice and take a few questions.
In the meantime pick out your favorite cupcake from the bullet points below:
In 2002, Cameo Edwards was living in San Francisco when she discovered she was gluten sensitive after two years of stomach pain and misleading diagnoses.
Determined to eat the foods she loved, she began baking and selling her gluten-free, dairy-free desserts in 2003. Crave seemed like the perfect name for this bakery since her frustrations came from food Cravings in which she could no longer safely indulge.
Cameo ran Crave Bakery for 10 years, making a line of high-end products for grocery stores throughout the Western US. In 2009, she also began making gluten-free, allergy-free wedding and party cakes for the Bay Area.
The Crave Gluten-Free Cookbook, with over 60 gluten and dairy free recipes, was published in May 2013.
