Gluten-free Baking Cooking Class


Learn how to make fresh gluten-free desserts and baked goods from scratch in this foundational course, which will equip you with all the skills and techniques you need to build on that knowledge at home. 

Product Details

The world of gluten-free baking can be overwhelming: rice flour or gram flour; xanthan gum or psyllium husk; potato starch or tapioca starch? During our three-hour course, you’ll be led by a trained chef in understanding gluten-free flour options, binders, & rising agents. In this class you'll learn to make a decadent sweet courgette loaf, perfectly chewy chocolate chip cookies, and a shortcrust pastry tart filled with creme patisserie. After the class you will be able to blend your very own gluten-free flour mixture. No more dry or crumbly cakes.
