  • Alternative Baking – Gluten Free with Raju:
    Sunday 4th May 11:00 am-4:00 pm

    We will be using only gluten free flours (such as buckwheat, rice, chestnut, millet, quinoa, tapioca, potato and lentil flours) to create baked goods, learning how to work with these flours a little differently than we would with wheat.

    We will be making a basic loaf, pizza and sweet, naughty and nice treats.

    This course is perfect for people who have intolerances or allergies to gluten, those who want to reduce their intake of wheat and use varied grains or learn how to bake for their intolerant friends. This will also be a great opportunity to meet others with similar diets and share ideas and recipes.

    We will use both organic yeast, naturally fermented yeast (starter cultures) and non-yeast recipes. We will also use alternatives to sugar and dairy.

    £30 Booking essential.

    Please book in advance – email hornbeambakers@gmail.com (with the relevant course in the email subject).
