Signed copies of The Dizzy Cook's critically acclaimed cookbook will be available for purchase. Those attending are eligible for a raffle including a signed cookbook and special edition tote bag.

Summer Sangria (Spirited or Zero proof option)

  • 2 stalks of Lemongrass
  • 1 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
  • 3 Cups White Grape Juice
  • Local Honey
  • Strawberries
  • 1 Mango or Peach
  • 1 Kiwi, Golden Kiwi if you can find them
  • 1.5L Soda Water

You'll be fine without one, but if you’re interested in trying zero proof spirits, most liquor shops have options for these now:

  • Any Zero Proof spirit you like

If preparing a spirited option:

  • Unaged Brandy or any clear liquor you prefer
  • 1 bottle Dry White Wine

You will want to have a pitcher or two large mason jars on hand for preparing the sangria.

Queso (Vegetarian and Gluten Free)

  • 1/2 lb American Cheese in block form
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 shallot
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (if you hate it you can omit)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 jalapeno if you like it spicy
You will need a cheese grater for shredding
A note on American cheese - for good quality, look at brands like Andrew and Everett, Boars Head, or Horizon. It’s best if you can ask your deli guy to cut you a block, rather than the slices. A cheese grater will help you to shred this! There is not a good substitute for American cheese for this recipe because of the creamy melted texture.

Red, White, and Blue Crumble (Vegan/Gluten Free)

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup honey or brown sugar
  • 1/4 toasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, coconut oil, or vegan pressed oil
  • 1 pint of vanilla ice cream
If you can tolerate it, lemon zest is also great with this but not necessary to add.
You will need at least an 8x8 baking dish. I like to use a gratin dish.

Alicia Wolf, The Dizzy Cook

Alicia Wolf is the Owner of The Dizzy Cook, a diet and lifestyle website for anyone with migraine, an Ambassador for the Vestibular Disorder Association, and a patient advisor for Miles for Migraine. She also contributes articles on Migraine Again and Healthline. After struggling with chronic vestibular migraine, she realized there were not many upbeat resources for people following a migraine diet or patient information on VM so she created thedizzycook.com. Her mission is to pass on critical information so patients do not have to see 7 different doctors to be diagnosed and treated. Alicia's new cookbook The Dizzy Cook: Managing Migraine with More Than 90 Comforting Recipes and Lifestyle Tips is available almost everywhere books are sold. You can find her on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Karen Tartt, Ingredient Sensitive Mixologist

Karen is an alcohol industry professional living with Vestibular Migraine. She was diagnosed in March 2019 after 18 months of searching for answers to the dizziness and growing list of debilitating symptoms she was experiencing. Relieved to finally have a diagnosis that fit, she adopted the “Heal Your Headache” diet, started connecting with the online vestibular community and receiving support from her peers. Like most folks in her line of work, Covid 19 completely changed everything. During quarantine, she started a blog (@tartt.drinks on Insta, www.tarttdrinks.com) where she writes cocktail recipes for folks with ingredient sensitivities. Karen is passionate about being an advocate for those with chronic illnesses, subversive style cross stitch, escaping the city for the occasional hike and long walks on the San Antonio Riverwalk.
