Pampered Chef Party

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been wanting to host a party. I have been to one years ago and the representative demonstrated the products by using and making a few food items. Has anyone hosted a party gluten free? I could easily get with the rep and substitute ingredients, but what about the bakewear etc? would it be alright? I would say no to anything done on stonewear. Do you think it would be alright if we lined with parchment or aluminm foil. I would be the only one that is gluten free, but since I would be the host, I want the whole thing gluten free. I don't tust anyone but myself, and maybe hubby to my kitchen. It sounds like a lot of fun and a good way to let people know gluten free food is not as weird as they thought.

Seems most of the recipes they do at parties use crescent rolls. I wonder what sort of recipe you could do... even w/ all the precautions?

Yeah, I am with you on the lining things with parchment and tin foil! You dont want cross contamination. And good for you for wanting to introduce people to gluten-free food. My family used to be afraid of it but now my mom and sister and friends think ''my'' food tastes better than a lot of what they have! LOL! OR perhaps you could preorder some of your bakeware and have your gluten free ones to bake on when the party comes!

Good luck!

Let us know how it goes down!

Ive heard that the Chebe bread mixes are quick and could approximate those little crescent rolls from a tube they always use... maybe give that a shot, or just come up with some easy flatbread of pizza recipe!

Yes!!! I have hosted a gluten free pampered chef party. I did one this past July. I chose "chicken jerk nachos" and we did a whole chicken in the deep covered baker.

I would highy suggest doing a chicken in the baker along with another dish. This was such a huge hit because you can cook a whole chicken in the microwave in about 30 minutes or so. A large percentage of guests at my party bought that piece and its $70 a pop.

The last time I looked the only seasonings that they have that are gluten-free are the chipotle and the jerk seasoning.

There are alot of other recipes that can be adapted. My cousin has a party after me and for her party they made a pasta salad (just sub gluten-free noodles) I couldn't eat the salad because they served it in a bread bowl, but that recipe could have been totally made gluten-free.

It can definately be done. I love, love, love pampered chef. Just work with your pampered chef person. Mine was great with me, but she also had a little bit of knowledge of gluten. She had a family member with celiac, so that helped.

Go for it and good luck. I know you mentioned the stoneware, and I have to say, they are my absolute favorite pieces. I do not allow ANY gluten to touch them. All of the gluten eaters in my house have to use the crappy old stuff that I have. LOL As a matter of fact I made a gluten free mac and cheese in one of the stoneware pans tonight!

I think Feb is a good month to host a party as I think the special for that month is the stoneware.

Did you have your own baker or did the rep bring one and use it? I currently do not own any pampered chef stoneware or bakewear. I do however have lots of parchment and aluminum foil. :lol: I am going to have to get into contact with an rep soon. I've been wanting to get some more pampered chef items.

I had my own baker at that time, but I used her bar pan for the nachos. I did not get sick. But I also wasn't eating off the bottom of the pan. That baker is such a HUGE seller. But you have to demo the chicken. It makes everybody ohhh and ahhh. LOL! When my cousin did her party she didn't do the chicken and no one bought the baker.

There are many recipes that dont have the cresent rolls. They give you a list of recipes to choose from. There was another dish that my friend did, which used the baker as well. It was a pasta dish made in the microwave in the baker. YOu actually dump uncooked pasta in. It was really good and I've made it before with gluten-free pasta. There are many many options.

Good luck!
