Cooking Class In Ca

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I am looking to take a gluten free cooking class in the CA bayarea, does anyone know of anything?

I am a 21 year old and a fairly new celiac and I need to learn how to cook! My family isn't very accomidating to gluten-free, and I am living at home for the summer so I would love to be able to cook some good gluten-free meals so they realize gluten-free isn't so bad!

Thank you for your time!

I don't know of a cooking class but some things that might be good are stir fry (San J makes a gluten free soy sauce-I found it at Safeway) and things like spaghetti (buy Tinkyada noodles from Vitacost online for less). Tostadas is another great idea. Mission foods' line "Guerrero" has a gluten free corn tostada rounds - found those at Winnco. Anything with pasta and cheese (fettucinni), etc., is great. Since you're online there is a wealth of information there. I'm sorry to hear your family is less than enthusiastic. Perhaps if they realize that a lot of meals are already gluten free that they probably like it might help. You pick the recipe and ask them for help in fixing it.


Mom to Nathan (5) and Joshua (6 months).

Nathan diagnosed Celiac through positive dietary response and bloodwork.

In search of the best gluten free recipes. I get discouraged, then pick up the measuring cup again and try some more.

Praying Nathan has a good year in Kindergarten!

Hi,

It's me again because I wanted to be clear about some things since you are newly diagnosed. When I say anything pasta and cheese is good, of course I mean to say rice noodles and make sure all the other ingredients are gluten free. I believe this site has a FAQ list of safe and forbidden foods. My point is that a lot of meals can easily be made gluten free. That way your family doesn't have to start eating completely new foods or recipes- just meals that have some adjustments. Perhaps they would agree to help you fix a couple of meals a week that have been adjusted. Approach it from the angle of needing help learning how to cook. Might seem less threatening to them. Food is a hot issue when people feel forced to change - don't we know!!!
