Before being diagnosed with Celiac Disease this past May, I enjoyed the quick take out meals or hot pizza delivered to the house after a long day at work. Unfortunately, Celiac Disease has put a quick stop to that and I now have to prepare fresh meals each day. O.k., I'm sure I can prepare them in advance and freeze them for those nights when I'm too tired to cook, but I still have to prepare them.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a cooking school somewhere in the U.S. that teaches gluten free cooking. I am aware of the video tapes and the online schools, but I find that attending class-room instruction has always been more beneficial, especially since there's a teacher and other students in attendance.

At 52 years old, it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks, as the saying goes.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,

H.

Thanks for these suggestions. I'll let you know what I find out. I'm in Northern California, but am willing to fly anywhere in the US to learn how to cook. My goal is to have all my meal planning and cooking second nature to me. I'm getting a little tired of being a slave to my binder ;)


Thanks again.

Our school district has community education classes (computers, languages, cooking, etc.) and just started offering a gluten-free cooking class. So many people signed up that they had 3 sections of it, and now have added a Gluten Free II class for more ""advanced" cooking. You might call a local university or school district and see if they might be interested.....

Ryebabyo,
Where do they have these classes?
I have emailed Elephant Walk in Boston (they have a gluten-free menu... and offer cooking classes...) but they haven't gotten back to me yet.
Any others in the Boston area interested in cooking classes? Where do you go?
Thanks,
Ruth

There are about 15 Whole Foods in Northern California and many of them have cooking classes. You can look on their website to see if one is near you. If they don't have a gluten-free class, ask them if they will add one. Someone posted not to long ago that the one in San Mateo has had a couple gluten-free classes.

I live in the South Bay and I did ask the Whole Foods in Campbell if they had a gluten-free cooking class. The person I asked was very knowledgeable about the disease and I thought he'd immediately say, "yes, we have gluten-free cooking classes!" Alas, he just said that they were looking into it.

But, to hear that the San Mateo WF might offer a gluten-free class is good news. I'll check their site out today.

I live in central PA--I gotta believe Whole Foods will have a class someplace near you. I wish we had them out here, although while we were in Baltimore I heard there was a hotel that actually had a Whole Foods convenience -style store inside!! Wouldn't that be wonderful?
