Healthy Cooking Series

In partnership with the UT Culinary Institute, Be Well is happy to announce the sponsorship of a series of healthy cooking classes. The classes are offered to UT Employees free of charge to educate the community and share new and healthy culinary tips. Class spaces are very limited so registration is on a first come, first serve basis until all available spots are filled. Any additional registrations will be added to a wait-list. Available classes are listed below. Registrations will open 3 weeks before the class time. 


In this hands on class you will learn how to prepare delicious baked goods using Gluten Free (GF) Flours. You will learn tips for successfully baking Focaccia, Buttermilk Biscuits and Triple Chocolate Cookies using all-purpose gluten free flour, white rice flour and/or almond flour. We will discuss the differences in GF flours and what flours make up the all-purpose blends. Please Note: The kitchen is not a GF facility.
