Together with Laurie Moore of Moore Farms & Friends (a local CSA), on August 22nd, I’ll be teaching a local-foods-based cooking class that’s free of gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, peanuts, fish and shellfish. The recipes will not be free of corn or tree nuts. The class will be held at Cooks Warehouse in Midtown Atlanta.* The class is being partially sponsored by Return to Eden, which I consider Atlanta’s best grocery store for the gluten-free. (They even have a staff member whose job is the gluten-free market!)
The menu, designed around the idea of a Labor Day picnic, will include barbecue made with pastured meat; macaroni and ‘cheese’; fresh bread; roasted veggie salad; and berry galettes—all made with as much locally grown, pesticide-free produce as possible.
If you’re interested in attending, you can reserve a spot at the Moore Farms special events page. Rumor has it that it’s going to sell out pretty quickly, so if you’re interested in attending, I’d encourage you to sign up in the next couple of days. The cost is $40 with an additional $10 if you also want a pre-made bread mix using the recipe we’ll utilize in the class.
I’d love to see you there! We’re going to cook up some great food and share some lovely recipes, but we’re also going to have a wonderful discussion about gluten-free and allergen-free lifestyles, including their pleasures and their challenges.
*The demo kitchen will be thoroughly cleaned, and we’ll be using my safe pans and utensils, but we can’t guarantee the kitchen will be free of traces of the offending foods.
