Gluten Free Cooking Class Featuring Lee Tobin

As a follow-up to a January Gluten Free Cooking Class, Lee Tobin will be hosting another one on March 10th @ 6:30pm.  Lee let me know that the class filled very quickly last time and had a waiting list so they decided to have him back for another.  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 second class, you definitely will learn a lot from Lee.
