Free From Cookery Class

We had a really interesting and delicious morning, for our Free From Cookery Class.

We covered most of the intolerant and allergy foods such as gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, soya and nut.

We looked at the variety of alternatives, spoke about the different places that are available to buy ingredients both instore and online.

We made some crunchy chickpea nibbles coated in spices with a starter of mackerel dip.

Our main course was a gorgeous fish pie, topped with both potato and sweet potato.

After the demonstration, there as a tasting lunch of all the food cooked.

These meringue kisses were a huge hit, especially when everyone discovered that they were #eggfree and were made from chickpea water aka Aquafaba!

We made perfect pastry and had some little jam and nut butter tarts.

The kitchen smelt delicious from the Carrot Cake, full of sweet smelling orange and cinnamon.

To finish with we had an apple and chocolate crumble, heavenly, served with dairy free ice cream or oatly dairy free cream.

Everyone went home with a copy of the recipes and full tummies!

I will be running this class again on Friday 23 November
6:30pm - 9:30pm


Next week we have our Monday morning Yoga & Meditation classes and our new Introduction to Papercutting on Thursday (2 spaces left).
