I shouldn’t say of course. You know we wouldn’t post a photo of food that contained gluten on this site. Still, you probably wouldn’t guess this is a gluten-free baguette. Look at those air holes. That crust. That bread is pliable and soft in the crumb and crisp on the outside. It’s a baguette.
Of course, if you’d like to learn how to make that baguette, plus sourdough bread, great pie crust, and any other gluen-free baked good of your choice, there are a few pledges that might interest you.
Tickets to the gluten-free Thanksgiving baking class ($250) we ran last week have all been snapped up. There was so much interest that we’re adding a December holiday baking class, for a pledge of $250. (That gets you two tickets!) It will be in Seattle this time, at our favorite bookstore/teaching space, Book Larder. We’ll be offering the class the evening of December 2nd, at 6:30 pm. You’ll learn how to make this baguette for holiday party appetizers, plus pie! And other delightful goods. If you pledge to Kickstarter soon, you could be part of this exclusive baking class.
Of course, if you want us to bake for you, there are a few options left.
We have the holiday gift basket for $250: copies of all three of our books, the 10 recipes exclusive to the Kickstarter, and a tin of gluten-free biscotti. There is only one left!
And if you are feeling concerned about a gluten-free Thanksgiving, let us make your pumpkin pie. This is a limited offer for only 10 people. We’ll make your gluten-free (and dairy-free, if you need it) pumpkin pie. Pickup will be on Vashon and in Seattle.
For months on end, Lucy’s favorite book when she was 2 was The Little Engine That Could. Every night I would read her that story, emphasizing the chugging noises as the only kind engine of the bunch, the tiniest engine out there, tried to pull all those train cars up the hill. I think I can I think I can I think I can. Lucy always cheered when they made it.
Tomorrow we’ll be halfway through our campaign. And if you help us push forward today, we could be more than 50% funded! We are so grateful to every one of the 643 backers so far who have pledged toward our goal. Thank you. But we still have a long way to go.
We want to give you a quick update of where we are so far and what we’re offering.
* We’ve been offering daily specials all week long and they have gone fast. Last week we offered a private dinner for 4 at our kitchen studio on Vashon. That sold out within a few hours! We also offered a Thanksgiving gluten-free baking class at our studio on Vashon, which went quickly too. This afternoon, there was a chance to win a ticket to an event honoring Mark Bittman’s new book, How to Cook Everything Fast: A Better Way to Cook Great Food and the launch of Gathered Table. (This new menu planning/grocery delivery service in Seattle is trying to make cooking easier for families. If you join, they create a custom-made weekly dinner plan for you, using your own recipes and their suggestions.) That offer was snapped up so fast from Instagram that the reward was fulfilled before I could publish this post.
* We are launching a new special today, since the private dinner pledge was so popular. We’re offering a private three-course brunch or lunch for 4 at our kitchen studio, on a date that works for you. We’ll tailor it to your food allergies/intolerance and food desires. We’ll also give you 1 box of the All-Purpose Flour mix for each guest and send you home with recipes for everything you ate! This reward could be yours for a pledge of $400.
Could you send the Kickstarter link to 40 people today? People who bake love to share. Please share this with your friends, family, and work colleagues today, if you can. Let them know why this matters to you.
