Gluten-free baking workshop scheduled for March 8 in Eureka

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

EUREKA SPRINGS -- Given up gluten? Probably the things people miss most when they go gluten-free is bread, followed closely by pizza, then goodies like pie.

Join us at the CulinArts Centerat the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow on Saturday, March 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. to solve some of the mysteries of baking without gluten.

In a hands-on class, you'll learn how to make whole-grain bread, pizza crust and pie crust that is every bit as good, if not better, than those containing gluten.

Writers' Colony Cook Jana Jones and Director Linda Caldwell will lead you on this journey. Jones grew up in the Czech Republic and has been cooking since she could reach the kitchen counter. She's worked in a number of restaurants around town and owned her own restaurant, The Daily Planet, on White Street until the recession took hold.

Caldwell owned a bed-and-breakfast in Sedona, Ariz., for four years, cooking for and serving up to 14 guests at a time.

Pre-registration for the class is required. Call the Writers' Colony at 479-253-7444 or email director@writerscolony.org to reserve your spot. The class fee is $25 and must be paid in advance. Cancellations less than 48 hours before the class won't be refunded.
