Summary Everyday Eating: Gluten Free and Dairy Free


  • Mon 12 Mar 2018   10.00 - 14.30

Whether you‘ve had to adapt your diet due to an intolerance, or you simply want to explore the amazing alternatives available to you, this one day workshop is an accessible introduction to gluten free and dairy free ingredients, including tips on adapting and altering traditional recipes. 

Through a combination of informative demonstrations and hands-on cookery guided by the Leiths chefs, you’ll discover interesting, nutritious dishes that you’ll want to create time and time again at home.

You’ll learn about nut butters and milks, and how to make appetising breakfasts such as Buckwheat pancakes with blueberries.

When it comes to baking, you’ll be introduced to an array of gluten free flours. We’ll explain how the properties of each ingredient will affect the finished bake, equipping you with the confidence and enthusiasm you need to use them in your everyday life. 

On top of learning about the alternatives, you’ll also discover fabulous recipes which simply don’t rely on the inclusion of dairy and gluten in the first place. 

Typical recipes might include:

  • Roast cashew and sunflower seed butter with cardamom, sea salt and vanilla
  • Acai bowl with hemp protein 
  • Mackerel with roasted baby beetroot, sous vide carrots, pickle and black garlic
  • Vegan salted caramel slice
  • Quinoa pizza

Please note, recipes might change.

Class structure

Cooking with your classmates is an integral part of your Leiths experience. You will cook some of your recipes in pairs, and some independently – whatever the ratio, there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too (foil containers and bags provided). 

Your evening will comprise of a mixture of hands on cookery and demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and, in the case of visiting chefs,  their  individual teaching style.

Unless otherwise stated, you will be eating the food that you have cooked during your class for lunch, usually with wine or elderflower cordial around a communal table. If your class does not involve cooking lunch you will enjoy delicious sharing platters prepared by the school.
