Observing a specific diet, avoiding dairy or being allergic to gluten doesn't mean you have to deprive yourself of delicious dessert. Or perhaps you find yourself cooking for a family member or guest with a dietary restriction that throws your dessert plan out the window. In this class, you will add to your repertoire of gluten free, dairy free and vegan dessert options. We will expose you to recipe formulas for classically gluten free and vegan desserts, that you can adapt to a variety of seasonal produce and flavor profiles. You will learn techniques and substitutions for replacing gluten, eggs and dairy with simply delicious plant-based alternatives.
Menu will include:
Dairy Free 2-Step Fruit Sorbet
Seasonal Fruit Galette with Gluten Free[form] Crust
All menu items above are dairy free and 100% plant based. This is a virtual hands-on class. We will provide a list of ingredients and materials at least 2 weeks in advance of the class.
Special equipment: a food processor and/or blender is highly recommended for this class.
