As Allergy Awareness Week draws to a close today, I thought it would be a good time to suggest some gluten free cooking courses coming up in 2015.

Even if you’re able to eat gluten safely (which most people are), these courses can introduce you to some new kitchen skills and help you be more adventurous with different grains. Sweet and savoury options are available to cover a variety of gluten free tastes.
