Next Santa Rosa support group meeting: Sunday, November 13th, 2-4 PM GLUTEN-FREE HOLIDAY FOODS
At our fall meeting, Jennifer Torrey will offer a presentation on getting those traditional holiday foods back into your diet by making them gluten-free, and the entire family won't even know they are eating gluten-free! Jennifer teaches many varied, delicious, well-priced, gluten-free cooking classes through the City of Santa Rosa and through her Gluten-Free Cooking Club in Bennett Valley. She is teaching three Gluten-Free Cooking Classes at the Finley Center this fall. For more information on her classes see the city's website and Fall/Winter Adventure Guide and you may also hear radio ads on KZST promoting the gluten free classes!
Information on her Gluten-Free Cooking Club is on our Bulletin Board under North Bay.
