I have several classes to come in the future and would love for all of you to attend if you have the time/energy.
I LOVE to teach!
So in order of timing:
Our First for Whatcom Community College!
A Harvest of Gluten Free Desserts
Have you recently discovered that you or someone you know is gluten-intolerant? If so, this class is designed for you with the upcoming holidays in mind when we all enjoy sharing luscious goodies with friends and family. Dr. Jean Layton will unveil three stunning recipes–all are elegant and tasty, use seasonal fresh products, can be prepared ahead, and, best of all, no one will ever guess they are gluten-free! You will sample a divine Molten Lava Cake, a Fall Harvest Fruit Tart with almond paste, and a yummy Pumpkin Cheesecake with glazed pecan topping. Dr. Layton will be joined by Kelle Rankin-Sunter, support leader for Bellingham Gluten Intolerance Group, to answer questions and give tips and tricks to cooking and living with gluten-intolerance. You will leave with a wealth of information and the confidence to serve stunning gluten-free desserts for your friends and family during the holiday season ahead. Class is held at Sehome High School.
