I recently took the Gluten Free Mama Florence course and was extremely impressed with the quality of the content and instruction. The course is taught by Mama Florence, a professional chef with years of experience in gluten-free cooking. She is knowledgeable, patient, and has a great sense of humor, which made the class enjoyable and easy to follow. The course covers a wide range of topics, including how to identify gluten, how to prepare gluten-free meals, and how to create delicious gluten-free desserts. Mama Florence also provides tips and tricks for living a gluten-free lifestyle and shares her own personal experiences with gluten intolerance.Andrew, 33
One of the things I appreciated most about the course was the variety of recipes and techniques that were taught. We made everything from pasta and pizza to bread and pastries, and I was amazed at how delicious and indistinguishable from their gluten-containing counterparts the gluten-free versions were.Julia, 22
