Baking a Difference Gluten-Free Baking Master Class
a fundraiser for GIG of Marin
Saturday, July 12
11 am to 4 pm
at a gorgeous private kitchen in Tiburon, CA
Purchase tickets ($200 donation)
Space is limited!
Take the mystery out of gluten-free baking and learn how to make satisfying bread and pizza at home while connecting with a sought-after teacher and a small group of others who share your interest in all things gluten-free.
Only 11 tickets will be sold for this exclusive chance to learn hands-on how to make bread and pizza, the gluten-free items that frustrate people most.
Jeffery will lead you step-by-step through the recipes he’s spent years perfecting; recipes that create bread and pizza you will be proud to serve to anyone (without using xanthan or guar gums, additives you’ll find in most store-bought GF items but which can cause allergic reactions for many people).
- Comprehensive review of gluten-free baking – flour varieties, baking techniques and tips, setting up a gluten-free kitchen
- Demonstration and hands-on instructions on how to make
- whole grain bread plus dinner rolls, hamburger buns and hot dog buns
- rye bread created in a bread maker
- everyday bread – an easy weeknight bread made with baking soda (no yeast)
- pizza and focaccia – deep dish and thin crust
- crackers and breadsticks
- scones and biscuits
- Tastings and special instructions on converting your favorite recipes
After your in-depth hands-on class, you will leave with 11 recipes for the items you’ve made and tasted (recipes for breads, pizza, biscuits, scones and crackers–not available any where else) and a folder full of baking techniques, resources, tools and simple ideas for recipe conversion that Jeffrey has perfected over years of experimentation.
Bring your apron and a notebook and get ready to gain a new understanding of gluten-free baking that you can put to work in your own kitchen! Your whole family will enjoy these recipes and no one will miss the gluten-filled stuff.
