Gluten Free & Vegan Baking 101 - March 5th
The World of Gluten Free & Vegan
March 5th 3-5
Instructor Stacie Bennett
A super nerve wracking topic for those that aren't sure how to bake it! I am going into my Fourth year of teaching this class and It's one my favourite to teach!
This class is very personal for me, I found out I had a Dairy & Egg allergy at the age of 21. Which to a baker and sugar lover it was devastating! 15 years ago ( yes yes I look no older than 24 ;) ) Vegan desserts were... How can I say this nicely.. TERRIBLE! I decided at that moment that I NEEDED to learn how to recreate all my favourites.
Fast forward to a couple years ago, We found out that BOTH our daughters had Dairy & Wheat allergies. This threw a curve that I was excited to adapt to! How to make Vegan & Gluten free things that will fool people. After many trials and months of errors I figured it out.
Being able to offer my customers something they can eat or something they can keep in the freezer so their child at a birthday party isn't left standing there with a fruit platter ( kind gesture... BUT IT'S NOT THE SAME THING!! trusttttttttttt me. Fruit is NOT the same as stuffing your face with cake or cookies.) Seeing the happiness of a customer who has to double check with me that it is in fact Gluten free and/or Vegan is my ultimate joy.
In this Class I will cover everything you need to know about Gluten Free, Gluten free & Vegan and Vegan. I will go over what to use and what NOT to use. Changing our mind set will only increase your business and/or impress that family member ( or yourself) But it will set you apart from other bakers who DON'T offer this!
Can you imagine, taking a Vegan Cheesecake to someones birthday and no one knows till after that it's Vegan. With a couple tweaks this could be GF Vegan Cheesecake.
There are SO many ways to change up recipes and I can't wait to help you on your way!
Please come with all your questions for our Q&A after the class.
Sampling of multiple Vegan GF desserts will be available.
