Want to bake for someone who needs gluten free or wheat free? This all day course will offer practical ideas and tips for baking tasty treats. You will be guided through recipes including cakes, flatbreads and pastry to help you feel more confident cooking for friends and family with dietary needs.

Please note: the course takes place in a kitchen where gluten and wheat flours are regularly used so is not recommended for anyone with very sensitive allergies and any products made as part of the course are likely to contain traces of gluten and wheat. This course is designed for those wanting to bake at home for specialist diets – we would like to know when you book what dietary requirements you have or are baking for so we can make sure all recipes are appropriate. All recipes will be vegetarian and can be vegan if required – if there are any further dietary needs we will do our very best to meet them.
