First, the updates. Last weekend, I taught an allergy-free baking class at the FAAN conference in Baltimore, and was thrilled to see a packed house, and so many enthusiastic new allergen-free cooks. The Q & A was fantastic, and I had a blast demoing the alchemy of baking without gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, tree nuts and peanuts.
For those of you in the Chicago area, I encourage you to come take my class “Comfort Foods to Warm Your Soul” where I’ll teach you how to make an allergen-free cream sauce, homemade Mac n’ Cheese, and Red Velvet Cake, all top 8-Free and Gluten-Free. My class is on Saturday, April 30th, from 3-4, at the Gluten & Allergen-Free Expo. I will also be signing copies of my Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook both Saturday and Sunday at the Vendor Fair, for the slamming price of only $15! This is $10 dollars LESS than in stores, and even cheaper than Amazon, because you don’t have to pay shipping.
THANK GOD IT’S ALLERGY FRIENDLY FRIDAY
Happy April Fools Day, and Happy Allergy Friendly Friday! The first day of April has always felt like the true beginning of spring to me. I love spring, it’s my favorite season. It’s all about beginnings. The budding leaves are that “new” shade of green, and crocuses and daffodils make me grin.
In honor of spring having sprung, let’s devote Allergy Friendly Friday this week to spring recipes. Anything having to do with spring, whether it’s Easter and Passover recipes, or ways to incorporate the lovely local strawberries that are starting to pop up at the farmers market. Your recipe can represent whatever spring means to you, Allergy-Free.
And remember, I specialize in creating gluten-free recipes that are free of the top 8 food allergens, but yours don’t have to be. They just have to be allergy-friendly in SOME way.
THANK GOD IT’S ALLERGY-FRIENDLY FRIDAY!
