New class dates for Nov 2017 – Jan 2018

classes | October 26, 2017 | By

After a fantastic October in California and a summer spent working on lots of yummy recipes for next year (some of them photographed above!) it’s time to get back to teaching!

I’m so happy to schedule the next round of GF baking classes at my home in Le Mesnil le Roi, just to the west of Paris. I’ve kept to the same themes and recipes this time around, so if you’ve taken a class with me before, you won’t be repeating any recipes if you sign up for a different class in this series. 

What will you learn at one of my classes?

  • how to blend your own blend of GF flours, without all the others you’ve bought going to waste
  • how to convert regular recipes to gluten free
  • how to substitute natural fibres and ground seeds for gums in most of (but not all) the recipes
  • how to make delicious baked goods that ALL the family will be happy to eat
  • to troubleshoot problems you’ve had GF baking to date
  • lots of little tips and tricks to make GF baking easier
  • and know that you’ll have me on hand via email to answer any post-class questions

PLUS you get to meet a great group of like-minded people, eat a delicious lunch and to take some goodies home for the rest of the family to try!

Group class runs 09h30-14h approx. and include lunch. Please see here for full details of how to book classes and to be added to the mailing list for future classes. The fee is €75 – a deposit of €25 is required to book your place and the balance of €50 is payable on the day.
