Train With the Professionals...

The Culinary Institute of America is has Gluten Free Baking Classes! Yes, it is true. I have been cooking gluten free for about 5 years now and I think I have a good sense of what works and what doesn't, but there is still so much to learn. It is a great opportunity to train with a Chef that has the resources of one of the largest culinary schools in the world. Just imagine the recipe testing he has been able to do with no worries of how many batches come out poorly. And hurray for the CIA, creating a class to train chef's and home cooks on how to work with gf ingredients. This is indeed a good sign.

There are 2 classes coming up at the Hyde Park, NY location, February 28th and March 14th. The class costs $325.00 and you will receive a signed copy of Chef Richard Coppedge's cookbook,
"Gluten-Free Baking". The class will cover yeast-raised breads and pastries, cookies, brownies, cakes, pies, quiche and pizza. The day will also include a light breakfast and lunch, lecture, hands-on-baking and a specially prepared GF dinner at one of the campus restaurants. I am signed up for the Feb 28th class, so if you do not get to go, I will let you all know how it went.

Read more about the class and register here.

Here is a review of the class in the NY Daily News, which is also where I borrowed the image above from.
