WPL TEST KITCHEN
Our cooking series continued with a recent Gluten-Free class held at the Main Library, with Johnson and Wales culinary student, Jordan L’ecuyer. She demonstrated how to make gluten-free flour from scratch and techniques on how to mix and roll out pie dough. Each participant got to roll out their own piece of dough, wrap it up and then take home the ready-to-bake pie crust. Samples and recipes were also provided!
| The program concluded with a Q&A session about community |
