Who is the Gluten-Free Course aimed at?

Mama Florence’s gluten-free cooking class is not just dedicated for those who suffer from gluten sensitivity or coeliac disease, but also for those who live with people following a gluten-free diet or are just curious about how to reduce the gluten they are currently consuming.

Your expert Italian florentine chef will provide you with useful information about gluten-free ingredients, their nutritional and organoleptic characteristics, how to select them and of course give you important tips on how to avoid cross contamination with gluten during meal preparation.

What will be taught in the Gluten-Free Cooking Class?

You'll learn how to prepare various dishes with naturally gluten-free rice, millet, corn, amaranth, quinoa, and how to turn them into rich and flavorful dishes. As you make your way through an entire Tuscan menu, from appetizer to dessert, you will learn about how to substitute gluten-free ingredients in the place of regular ingredients to ensure a rich and varied gluten-free diet.

There are so many wonderful naturally gluten-free ingredients that we choose not to use industrially prepared premixed gluten-free flours or mixes. Your chef will show you how to make everything you need for a scrumptious gluten-free meal from scratch!  Of course please do let us know ahead of time if you have any special requests or other dietary needs and we are happy to accommodate you.
