La Oliva Gluten Free Kitchen Celebrates Celiac Awareness Month 2015

La Oliva: Gluten-Free Kitchen is the culmination of a lifelong dream for Edmonton's Alisha Duret.  This May La Oliva: Gluten-Free Kitchen is a new sponsor for our blog.  I was happy to welcome Alisha and her dream aboard as a sponsor because of all the great work she does in Edmonton, including all of the gluten free classes and gluten free pop-up dinners she hosts along with her catering.  Check out La Oliva's event line up for May:

Saturday, May 9th- Gluten free bread making class - 3 hour class- everyone will get to make their own loaf of artisan bread and they will also get to learn how to make wraps, cinnamon buns and english muffins. (SOLD OUT). *More bread making classes will be offered in the Fall.

Sunday, May 10th - Spanish Tapas Dinner- This dinner will include 8 Spanish tapas and 2 desserts, all gluten-free!  For more information or to buy tickets, please visit the link below: Click here to register.
