Laconia Adult Education Gluten-Free Cooking

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education will offer a class on Gluten-Free Cooking Made Simple. The class will begin on Tuesday, January 28, from 6- 7:30 p.m. and will run for five weeks.

Sarah Baldwin-Welcome, a culinary graduate of Newbury College, will teach the class. She is the owner of Provincial Palate Inc. specializing in mustards and specialty catering.

Over 1 million Americans may have intolerance for gluten, a common ingredient in more foods than people may realize. Gluten is a protein found in all wheat, rye, barley, and oat products.

Wheat allergy is an abnormal immune system reaction to one or more proteins found in wheat. Allergy to wheat is one of the more common food allergies in children. Avoiding wheat is the primary treatment for wheat allergy. Wheat allergy is different from a disorder known as Celiac Disease, an immune system reaction that causes inflammation in the small intestines when a person eats any food containing gluten, one type of protein found in wheat.

People can learn to live without some of these things by replacing them with Wheat/Gluten-free ingredients and still enjoy pasta, pizza and crepes. Participants in the class will learn how to prepare basic recipes with gluten-free replacements as well as how to explore new gluten-free ingredients.

Call the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712 to enroll in this class.
