2200 W Main St
Durham, NC 27705

We've all been there... Whether we are hosting an event or attending one and someone in the crowd has an allergy, a gluten sensitivity, is vegan or vegetarian, is kosher or halal and beyond. Maybe they've just started Whole 30 or Keto and upon telling their server and thus the Chef, we watch them get served a boring a salad, maybe a pasta or the ever dreaded veggie tray (or plate of grilled veggies if we're getting fancy).

So why can't food be good and meet so many of these ever present needs? Join us at Parizade as their Chef prepares a four course meal to get our taste buds peaked and our imagination roaring as we help understand the needs of diets and allergies around us. 

Along with an engaging conversation from the Chef, we will talk to Dr. Dinezza from Infinity Holistic Health in Chapel Hill to discuss the most common allergies and sensetivies and allergen-friendly food options that aren't boring and the most burning topic, whether the rise in food interlorance, is it real or hype? Come with YOUR questions too as we dive into a topic that is always present in our industry!
