No, not about New Year’s Eve, but about the Fresh Approach Cookbook Club which begins in January.
We’ll be meeting at Ellen McDowell’s The Cooking School to make all those comfort foods you love -fried chicken, chocolate raspberry layer cake and cinnamon rolls, to name a few. But get this, the recipes are all gluten-free. Yes, it’s possible to follow a gluten free diet without sacrificing one dollop of flavor or texture.
If you’re signed up to attend in person, you already know the drill. We’re using two cookbooks, The Lagasse Girls’ Big Flavor, Bold Taste–and No Gluten!: 100 Gluten-Free Recipes from EJ’s Fried Chicken to Momma’s Strawberry Shortcake by by Jilly Lagasse and Jessie Lagasse Swanson (yes, THAT Lagasse family) and Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great by Danielle Walker. We’ll each make a dish from the cookbook and serve it at our dinner party, with lots of suggestions and input from Ellen and nutrition experts and discussion from you as you develop the knowledge and cooking skills to maintain a gluten free diet.
Every month check back here at Kees To The Kitchen for inspiration, recipes and a recap of our dinner, including pictures and comments from other cookbook club members. And make sure you have an Instagram account, follow thecookingschool and keestothekitchen and use the hashtag #freshapproachclub, so we can share pictures of our dinners.
