I personally do not live a gluten-free diet, but I do enjoy many gluten-free dishes on a weekly basis. I do however, know many people who suffer from a gluten allergy, so I’m always trying to come up with trying new dishes they can eat. I’m also always browsing the internet for gluten-free cooking classes in the area so I can brush up on my skills.
This class that I found looks pretty awesome:

11:00am to 2:00pm
Hands-on (Limited to 16 Students)
The class is offered at Ramekins, which is a gorgeous cooking school located in Sonoma, aka land of wine and cheese. I wish SoCal would offer more awesome classes like this. I’ve seen a few offered at Sur La Table that focus on gluten-free cooking but even those are kind of limited. So I’ve decided to start the Great Gluten-Free Cooking Class Hunt – a quest to find the best gluten-free cooking classes in the Southern California area. Recommendations/Suggestions are greatly appreciated, so if you know of a good class please let me know! I’ll be sure to update my progress as I find fun Gluten-Free Cooking Classes to take.
And to any Bay Area readers – you should check out this class at Ramekins (along with other cooking classes they offer). It looks like it’s going to be quite the yummy event! Perhaps next time I am up north I will have to check this place out for myself…
Let the hunt begin!
