Gluten-Free Baking! at Kookoolan Farms

This is an all-day class that runs from 9AM to 3PM and includes coffee or tea with GF pastries, full GF farm lunch made with all-Kookoolan ingredients plus the baked goods produced during the morning session, and afternoon snacks. Come hungry and expect to leave full!

DSCN9622 150x150 Fall 2012 Gluten Free Baking Classes with Dori; Holiday Baking, Sourdough Baking & 1 Day Kookoolan WorkshopSuccessful GF baking requires two significant changes to wheat-based baking: gluten is the “glue” or “stickiness” that keeps baked goods together; without gluten, other substances must be used as the glue. Dori discusses the pros, cons, and best usages for all. The second modification is pH. All wine and beer makers know that a proper pH range is crucial for good yeast growth. Baked goods also use yeast, and bread yeast has been selected by humans over thousands of to perform best in the pH range naturally present in wheat flour doughs. GF ingredients typically yield a dough in a different pH range. By modifying the pH of the dough, you can help your yeast to thrive.

Beyond these two technical details, you’ll participate in producing (and eating!) a variety of baked goods, and you’ll go home both with technical notes and with a booklet of detailed recipes. This class is ideal for you if you or someone you love is GF; if you have recently been diagnosed GF; if you are GF but missing your baked goods. You’ll get lots of camaraderie and support from instructor and classmates alike, and you’ll get many tips on GF lifestyle not just in your own kitchen, but also for eating out at restaurants, grocery shopping, and social situations such as managing your family members and going to friends’ houses for dinner.
