Thursday, December 15th | 6:00pm-8:30pm | Gluten Free & Vegan Holiday Sides


Under the guidance of a gluten-free chef, learn simple techniques and tricks for three make-ahead sides – a seasonal vegetable, casserole, and stuffing – perfect for holiday meals. Students will learn how to save time, energy, and headache as the sides can be reheated in the oven and served at a future gathering.

Please note: Participants will have the option to enjoy pre-made dishes during class time, however students will be taking their individual portions home to heat and eat later. Please bring three 6" x 6" pans or containers to bring your sides home in, a couple additional single size to-go containers, and an apron. All recipes made in this class will be vegan and gluten free, however the kitchen is not an allergen-free environment.

This class is appropriate for ages 16+. Anyone under the age of 18 must attend with a parent or guardian. Please purchase one ticket per person attending.

This class will take place at Eat Me Ice Cream located inside The Hungerford Building at 1115 East Main St. Suite 148. Please enter through Door 1.
