Have you heard about Haven’s Kitchen? It’s a brand spanking new recreational cooking school near the Union Square Greenmarket…and it’s gorgeous!
Here’s the description from the website:
Haven’s Kitchen is a recreational cooking school, specialty food shop, and event space. Located in a charming carriage house two blocks from Union Square, Haven’s Kitchen is dedicated to the preparation and enjoyment of delicious, sustainable, seasonal food.
The first floor is the cafe/kitchen shop and professional kitchen classroom. Up the original marble staircase on the 2nd floor is a great private event space complete with a swanky bar on one end and a hidden kitchen for your personal chef. The 3rd floor is an even larger event space and the rooftop is going to bloom soon and will have its very own apiary!!!!!!
Talented and respected chefs and food educators teach there, like Andrea Beaman (you know she attended IIN too?!) and Top Chef Hung Huynh. Whoa!
I’m honored that Alison Schneider, the founder of Haven’s Kitchen, has invited me to teach a Gluten-Free Baking 101 class there this coming May 10th (Thursday) from 9:30am – 12:30.
My schedule is jam packed with other projects these days, so this very well may be the only time I’ll be able to do this. I’ve squeezed this one class in because I think it sounds like so much fun! These are meant to be intimate classes with only 12 spots total.
Are you intimidated by gluten-free baking?
Are you afraid of the kitchen?
Do you only use store bought gluten-free baking mixes? (Not that there’s anything wrong with that! ;))
Then this class is for you. It’s a beginner’s introduction to gluten-free baking.
I’ll have a little gluten-free breakfast snack waiting for you when you arrive and there’s a fabulous coffee bar there in the kitchen shop/cafe area.
We’re going to cover the basics:
-Introduce you to a large variety of gluten-free flours and explain their nutritional attributes
-Introduce you to key ingredients that work like gluten in baked goods
-How to mix up your own all purpose gluten-free flour mix
-How to convert a regular recipe to gluten-free
-And of course, we’ll be baking!!
Blueberry Muffins w/ lemon zest
Chocolate Chip Cookies
The last half hour we will all sit at the communal dining table and enjoy the fruits of our labour along with each others company. That’s how things roll at Haven’s Kitchen.
I’m SO excited!!!!!!
SIGN UP – ONLY 12 SPOTS!

THIS CLASS ISN’T FOR YOU IF…
You are super sensitive to cross contamination. Of course the ingredients will be hand chosen by me and are sure to be gluten-free and we won’t be using their KitchenAid mixers. I’ve purposely chosen recipes that do not require the use of a KitchenAid mixer. I will be bringing my own food processor. The utensils, baking pans and ovens are not dedicated for gluten-free use only. I will be using parchment paper. We will be the only ones using the kitchen during the class.
