One in three Americans is trying to follow a gluten-free diet. And whether or not they’re snubbing the grain protein for valid health reasons – fewer than one percent of the population is coping with celiac disease, the most severe form of gluten intolerance – their desire for eggplant parmesan, gravy and mac-n-cheese that don’t taste like sawdust is understandable.
Trident Technical College is trying to appeal to those discerning eaters with a pair of new workshops: Gluten-Free Kids’ Favorites and Gluten-Free Dinners. Both classes feature entrée overviews and a recipe exchange.
Gluten-Free Kids’ Favorites is scheduled for 9 a.m.-12 noon on Mar.22. Gluten-Free Dinners will meet from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on Apr. 30. Each class costs $59.
