Gluten Free Cooking Class Featuring Lee Tobin

Just wanted to let you all know about an awesome upcoming Gluten Free cooking class featuring Lee Tobin from the Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse. If you are not familiar with Lee (shame on you), then check out this interview I did with him in February 2009. Lee Tobin is a great guy and has really been a pioneer in the Gluten Free world which has led us to the marketplace we enjoy today. If you get the opportunity to attend this class, you definitely will learn a lot from Lee.
