I am leaving in a little bit and heading up to Hyde Park so that I will be bright-eyed for my gluten-free pastry class tomorrow at the Culinary Institute of America. Chef Richard Coppedge, Jr. C.M.B. is going to be our second interviewee of the year and I am the lucky interviewer.
He thought it would be best if I came and participated in the class so that I could further understand what it’s all about…I’m going through his cook book now and I’m really amazed at some of the gluten-free pastries here.
As a huge fan of the Food Network and a pretty decent home cook, I am just over the moon at this opportunity to work in a professional kitchen and learn some new tips. But I’m also terribly nervous because I hate baking and I really stink at baking.
The interview will run in our next issue, which ships in June. I think it is going to be a really great day.
