Fancy your hand at a gluten free cooking course? Take advantage of a discounted one in Essex this september.
As Coeliac awareness has grown and people have learnt more about gluten intolerances, more and more cookery courses have started popping up, mostly through local support groups, Juvela often set up cookery classes around the country, or local colleges with evening classes. Wherever they are taking place, there is no doubt that there has become a demand for them, as processed food prices climb up and hit all time highs regarding their sugar levels people have taken to cooking their own meals from scratch where they know exactly what is going into their food and can cook it for a fraction of the price supermarkets charge for it ready made.
Here at Coeliac Sanctuary we have a range of recipes
that we hope people like trying to make, but cooking and baking itself doesn't come naturally to everyone, leading many people to take up the challenge of attending cookery courses specifically targetted at gluten free food.
We know of a fair few courses going on around the county, having looked at some ourselves, we might be able to cook but we still wouldn't mind advancing our skills, but the best place to go to learn is always a proper cooking school. Although the likes of Groupon may hold special deals for cooking courses they aren't always trustworthy, we've been told a few times about some bread courses where the chefs baking has been far from satisfactory never mind the students attempts!
The lovely people over at The Cookery School at Braxted
in Witham, Essex have two excellent courses going on in September where you can learn to bake gluten free bread and perfect gluten free pastry (something that isn't easy and took us a long time to master!). Whatsmore they have been kind enough to give Coeliac Sanctuary readers 10% off the £145 course prices. To receive the discount of the courses simply use code GLUTEN10
when you book a place on either course. Here are the details of the courses.Gluten Free Bread Course - 23rd September 2015
