Gluten-free baking class (in person)

  Saturday 5 Feb 2022

  1:00 pm  - 5:00 pm

Emma has made it her mission to ensure that those with gluten-free diets and sensitive guts can have their cake and eat it.Emma Hatcher

In this class, Emma will share the tips and techniques behind successful gluten-free baking so you can say goodbye forever to dry, flat, crumbly messes. She’ll reveal the role of xanthan gum, explore different gluten-free flours (and teach you how to blend them) and explain why resting your cookie dough is so important. And her go-to rules for gluten-free will be complemented with tips for baking dairy-free as well.

By the end of the class you will takeaway:

  • a fluffy sponge with whipped cream and rhubarb & vanilla jam – showing how gluten free cake recipes can actually be quite forgiving
  • perfectly soft, crumbly scones – with tips for how to create layers as they puff up in the oven
  • classic chocolate chip cookies – learn how to ensure they are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside

Emma created because she believes delicious food should be for everyone and we’re looking forward to tasting the results in her new classes. Find out more about Emma and the other cooks who teach in the Community Kitchen.
