Lately Chef Laura Wilson of Grow Local Kitchen at the Nashville Farmers' Market downtown has been scheduling interesting cooking classes faster than we can report them.
, set for 5 to 7 p.m. this Saturday, March 17, stars the excellent chef Sam Tucker. He's the pastry chef at Watermark and used to be Wilson's sous chef when she was at Turnip Truck Urban Fare. (They're the dynamic team that won last year's Iron Fork.)
Here's the class synopsis:
The amazing baker and pastry chef from Watermark, Sam Tucker, hosts a gluten-free bread baking class featuring Irish Soda Bread. Sam was already an almost 20-year kitchen veteran when he found that his wife and son both had celiac disease. Since then, he has made it his mission to develop delicious gluten-free bread recipes. Reservations are required and space is limited. The cost is $25 a person.
Soda bread? The class even has a St. Patrick's Day angle. Register here, and don't dally: These classes have been selling out.
(However, if you can't make it, Tucker is expected to teach more gluten-free classes in the future.)
