By now, you've likely heard me talk about The Inn on Randolph, a newly renovated and dedicated gluten free B&B in the heart of California's Napa Valley wine growing region.
Owner Karen Lynch, gluten free herself for 7 years, has transformed this historic 19th century home into a luxurious and modern retreat. It offers the perfect getaway for gluten free travelers wishing to spend some time in this beautiful part of the country. As a guest at the Inn, you enjoy fabulous gluten free breakfasts and late afternoon appetizers...and you'll have your choice of several nearby restaurants that are just as gluten-free friendly.
Karen occasionally hosts special events, and now she's offering a two-day Gluten Free/Allergen Free Baking Class with Master Chef Jeffrey Larsen from March 16-17, 2014.
You'll check in at 12:30 on the 16th and then enjoy a lecture on gluten free baking where Chef Larsen will discuss flour varieties, baking techniques and tips, and how to set up a gluten free kitchen. Then you'll participate in a hands-on baking class in which you'll prepare breads, pizza, rolls, hamburger buns, and focaccia. After a break to relax, you'll nibble on gluten free appetizers, followed by dinner and dessert and a demo on how to make six different cookies from one dough.
Monday begins with a Continental breakfast, followed by a class on making and baking gluten free scones and biscuits. The late-morning wrap-up is a talk on converting your favorite recipes to equally delicious gluten free recipes!
By the time this two-day retreat is over, you'll have learned how to prepare the following:
- Whole grain bread
- Rustic rye bread
- Everyday bread
The cost for this not-to-be-missed experience is $350. For more information, visit The Inn on Randolph's website or call 707-257-2886 for a reservation. But hurry...spots are limited.
