If you have celiac or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, you know how difficult it is to find ready-made gluten-free foods. I have had the opportunity to attend meal assembly classes with my daughter, Sara and thought it would be great to offer that opportuninty to our customers.
I had 5 individuals enroll in the class. They each made 5 gluten-free entrees, that served 4 servings each, so a total of 20 meals each for $70.00. They were freezer-ready to have later. Two customers have surgery coming up and needed frozen gluten-free meals they could count on for later.
I have attached a photo of most of the shopping items and the shopping list. I prepared for 100 meals that day, with the help of Nicole, my assistant and Chef Casey Jensen.
