More people than ever are removing gluten from their diets, and manufacturers in the food industry are responding to this increased demand for gluten-free products. Following a gluten-free diet is easier now than ever. Many gluten-free processed foods contain undesirable ingredients, however, and hidden glutens in processed foods are still ubiquitous, Moreover, for people with certain health conditions that require they follow a strict gluten-free diet, even the kitchens of friends and relatives pose a risk though cross-contamination of gluten-free items with those containing gluten. In this class, you will learn to identify hidden glutens on product labels, identify unhealthy ingredients in commercial gluten-free products, and avoid cross-contamination in restaurants, as well as in the kitchens of friends and family. Additionally, you will learn the basics of gluten-free baking, including the function of various types of flours and starches in baked goods.

*Foods we sample in this class may contain dairy, eggs, and tree nuts.

**Feel free to bring your own wine; non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.
