Gluten-free Cooking Schools

8 posts in this topic

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?

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
