Gluten Free Goodies - A Baking Class

Well, it's almost holiday time and that means the ever-impending onslaught and mass abundance of goodies and sweets that begin to appear in all corners of the office, at social gatherings and everywhere in between. For Celiacs, the holidays do seem to pose their share of hidden dangers and holiday blues, especially because eating anything "mainstream" is on the no-no list...but have no fear, the answer is here...well, that is if you live in the Reno, Nevada area.

Whole Foods Market in Reno (and I'm sure all over the nation - check with YOUR local market) is offering a "Gluten Free: Savory and Sweet"(Hands-on)baking class this Friday, November 14th from 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m., in their Culinary Center located at 6139 So. Virginia St. They are charging $25 per person which includes all instruction and baking materials/ingredients.

The evening class promises to make "sweet" dreams come true, as the culinary staff will be guiding us through the steps of how to bake a Black Bottom Cake with Cherry Compote, Cheddar Cheese Scones and delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies - now what Celiac could pass that up - not I!

For more information or to sign up call (775) 852-8023 or email: stacey.wittek@wholefoods.com

See you there - and 'tis the Season!

Aimee...thank you so much for the tip on the Whole Foods baking class! I am very much looking forward to it, in the event that the class fills up or else they will cancel. Spread the word :-)
