Flavor Flours with Alice Medrich

September 15, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Set aside your all-purpose gluten free flour blend for a minute! This class will introduce you to baking—cakes, cookies, and tarts—with individual, flavorful non-wheat flours, including rice flour, corn flour, buckwheat flour, oat flour and teff. This game changing approach—with very simple recipes— introduces a world of new desserts for the home baker with compelling ideas and inspiration for the professional. Alice’s book, Gluten Free Flavor Flours was the James Beard Best Baking Book (2015) and appeared on New York Magazine’s list of Best Baking Books, according to pastry chefs and professional bakers, in 2018.

To introduce this unique approach to non-wheat baking, the class will begin with a simple tasting of 5 sponge cakes—each made with a single non-wheat flour.


Dessert menu:

Orange Blossom Corn Flour Chiffon Cake with Shredded Halvah and Strawberries

Yogurt Tart with oat flour crust, garnished with dates, pomegranate seeds, and pistachios

Buckwheat gingerbread

Coconut Chocolate Tartlets


You do not need to be gluten free to enjoy these desserts.

Beginners and professionals welcome. This will be a demonstration class.
