Just in time for picnic season in this class we will explore buckwheat almond quiche, cheesy chickpea biscuits and oaty crackers. Working with gluten free pastry can be a notoriously crumbly experience, so I’ll be doing my best to share my top tips for success.
In this class we will cover cake, cookies and brownies all using a range of gluten flours and techniques. We’ll make the most of seasonal summer fruit as simple decorations for our cakes.
Lets go Italian:
Gnocchi and Gnudi – a type of naked ravioli – can be easily made gluten free with the right ingredients. We’ll be cooking these with a delicious herby sauce and also try our hand at farinata – a yummy Ligurian flatbread made from chickpea flour.
Nothing quite beats fresh pasta! In this class we’ll make two varieties of tagliatelle using different flours, and serve them with a delicious tomato sauce. We’ll finish the class (and course) with an Italian chestnut cake – Castagnaccio.
Gluten Free Flour:
In this class you’ll learn about all the different varieties of flour that can be used if you are following a gluten free diet. You’ll learn how to make your own flour blends, why wholegrains, sprouting and grinding your own flour is a wise nutritional choice and we’ll put your blends to the test in some simple recipes!
