May 29- Gluten-free Pasta A/TX

70.00

In this hands-in class, you will learn to make delicious gluten-free pasta using a traditional pasta machine with rollers. You will learn which gluten-free flours make the most successful dough, and I will introduce you to less commonly known flavorful gluten-free flours that can be used to create pasta that adds to the flavor of the dish rather than acting as passive carriers of the sauce. 

Since making gluten-free pasta is just the beginning of creating a perfect pasta dish, you will also learn how to cook it perfectly, season it and apply the right sauces. We will learn the pasta making and cooking methods of Italian cook extrordinaire Marcella Hazan, whose methods are easily adaptable to gluten-free pasta making. We will put her methods into practice by adapting a pasta recipe by Yotam Ottolenghi as well!

May 29 | 7-9 PM

This small, intimate class will be taught in my South Austin home 1 mile south of the river in my completely gluten-free kitchen. Address and directions will be emailed 48 hrs. before class.

Allergy info: Although all the ingredients I use in my kitchen are gluten0free, I do regularly use peanuts and tree nuts  in my kitchen. The food we sample will contain eggs, dairy and tree nuts.

After years of teaching freshman composition students how to write academically, Teresa left her academic career at UTSA to pursue her passion for all things food-related. Always an avid cok, she has baked from scratch since childhood using only quality, non-processed, non-engineered ingredients. When she was diagnosed with Celiac disease, she worked to adapt her family's favorite recipes to be gluten-free while upholding her philosophy that natural ingredients are superior. She includes butter and sugar under the category of natural and fights to slvage the reputation of these 2 essential elements of palate-satisfying baked goods. Living without gluten doesn't have to mean living without rich, delicious food, and as 2 of Teresa's children have also been diagnosed with Celiac disease, her resolve has strengthened to provide her family with gluten-free savory dishes and desserts to delightfully scrumptious that even non-Celiacs prefer her dishes! These days Teresa spends her time writing about food, maintaining a gluten-free blog, her membership to the Austin Food Blogger Alliance, developing recipes, and teaching her grandsons how to cook and bake.
