Gluten Free Cooking Classes in NYC Today until Monday!

I went to a gluten free cooking class with Rebecca Reilly at the Natural Gourmet Institute. It was a glass on gluten free dumplings! We learned how to make asian dumplings, gnocchi, apple dumplings, matzah and matzah ball soup, spaetzle as well as a bunch of sauces. (She even gave instructions on how to make pop tarts from the gluten free apple dumpling recipe.) It was the most fun thing I have been to in years. Even though, I attended cooking school years ago and cooked professionally in restaurants, I learned so much from Rebecca, who has been cooking gluten free food professionally for over 15 years and is the author of . The bonus--at the end of the class the students all got to enjoy a gluten free FEAST together with gnocchi with a red pepper sauce, gnocchi with sage butter, asian dumplings and apple dumplings. I can't remember when I had this many tasty gluten free dishes that I hadn't prepared myself. After cooking gluten free food in my kitchen on my own for three years, the cooking class was a dream come true. And Rebecca Reilly has three more gluten free classes this week that you can still sign up for:

Sat., Feb. 13, 11-5 Gluten Freedom: Reclaiming Our Daily Bread
Sun., Feb. 14, 11-5 Amazing Gluten Free Pies, Tarts and Quiche
Mon., Feb. 15, 11-5 Gluten Freedom: Reclaiming Our Daily Bread

Wow, it was the most fun thing you have been to in 2 years! I guess you don't do very much fun stuff with you family.
