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 planning a dinner party where at least one guest has 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 for binding without eggs, gelling without gelatin, whipping cream from cashews, and replacing dairy with plant-based substitutes.
Menu will include 2-3 of the following or other desserts by request:
Bright Blood Orange Tarts in a Toasted Pecan Crust
Flourless Chocolate Cake* with Berry Coulis
Vegan Zucchini Flax Bundt Cake with Chocolate Chunks
Poached Fruit with Cashew Whipped Cream
Spiced Sweet Potato Custard*
Apple Galettes with Cinnamon N’ice Cream
Almond Cookie Butter & Jelly Cups
All menu items above are dairy free and gluten free. Those with a * may contain eggs.
This is a virtual hands-on class. We will provide a list of ingredients and materials at least 1 week in advance of the class. Help determine our menu by registering now.
