Whether you are avoiding gluten or just looking for ways to transform them into innovative, modernized dishes, they are the perfect complement to your diet. Learn to identify, select, and prepare grains including millet, buckwheat, sorghum, teff, black quinoa, and amaranth. These small powerhouses boost nutritional density of foods and are full of flavor to compliment any meal of the day. From soaking to toasting, you will be able to take away tricks of the trade and ready yourself to incorporate these ancient grains into your cooking repertoire.
*Each class is built upon techniques, with multiple recipes covering the various techniques. Although students will not have hands on experience with each recipe, they will learn techniques for each and be able to taste all completed dishes at the end of the class. All students will leave with a complete recipe packet at the end of the class.
