LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gabriella's Kitchen will be serving its nutrient-rich, high-protein skinnypastaTM to participants attending Cellular Horizons: The Third International Conference on the Progress of Regenerative Medicine and Its Cultural Impact at the Vatican from April 28th – April 30th.
Margot M. Micallef, CEO and co-founder of Gabriella's Kitchen, named her company in honor of her sister, Gabriella, who lost her battle to lung cancer. Micallef will share Gabriella's story with attendees, including her belief that wellness comes from within, and that nourishing the body with fresh, high-quality and nutritious ingredients is where healing, treatment and regeneration begin.
"It is an honor having Gabriella's Kitchen participate in this international event," said Micallef. "Health is at the core of what inspires the skinnypastaTM product line. We are passionate about providing nourishment for those who are ill to encourage healing from the inside out, as well as for those who want to nourish their bodies to maintain wellness."
Gabriella's Kitchen skinnypastaTM, which is GMO-free and has no additives or preservatives, will be served at the event to a group of over 350 guests, including renowned cell therapy doctors and scientists, ethicists, philanthropists and leaders of faith and government. "The event aims to create a global conversation about the healing potential of cell therapy and the importance of getting approved therapies to people suffering with debilitating medical conditions. We will discuss the importance of keeping our immune cells and body healthy and how food and their ingredients can have a direct effect on our health," said Dr. Robin Smith, President of the Stem for Life Foundation.
In further recognition of Gabriella and as part of the company's corporate social responsibility program, Gabriella's Kitchen has chosen to support the Stem for Life Foundation's efforts to create a future in which others don't lose loved ones to lung cancer or any cancer.
Italian sisters Gabriella and Margot Micallef founded the company now known as Gabriella's Kitchen to create nutritious and delicious foods that everyone could enjoy, regardless of their dietary preferences or restrictions. Naturally, they started with pasta! Using fresh, high-quality ingredients and an original artisanal Italian pasta machine, they created skinnypasta™, allowing everyone to Love Pasta Again™. In 2009, the sisters began commercializing their non-traditional pasta and, in 2015, the company was renamed Gabriella's Kitchen in honor of Margot's late sister, who remains the inspiration behind the company.
