The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
Emma has made it her mission to ensure that those with gluten-free diets and sensitive guts can have their cake and eat it.
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:
- fluffy sponge cupcakes 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
Dietary information: The menu for this class is gluten-free, but please note we cannot guarantee the kitchen is a fully gluten-free environment. We can adapt the menu for dairy-free diets, but this must be specified when booking. For any other allergies or dietary requirements, please contact us to discuss before booking.
