Gluten Free

More people are beginning to switch to a lifestyle free of gluten whether for health concerns or otherwise. Many feel as if they are missing a staple in their diets and are unsure how to cook without it. This doesn’t have to be the case! This class will cover an intro to Gluten Free eating and talk about alternative solutions to Gluten filled foods and flours. We will make one Gluten Free savory dish and one sweet recipe.
 

Seitan, Tempeh, & Tofu

When going vegetarian, many of us miss the texture flavor and “main dish” feel that meat provides. In this class we will cover the basics of meat alternatives and make a dish using each of the types that are fabulous enough to fool any meat eater at your table!

Seasonal Produce

Eating seasonably allows us to enjoy vegetables at the peak of their flavor, creating more vibrant and healthy meals while supporting our local economy and environment (and saving us money too!). In this class we will work with a seasonal produce item and learn three different recipes that show how to make the ingredient shine.
 

Pet Food
