The popularity of eating gluten –free does not appear to be waning; whether going gluten-free for health reasons or merely opting in as part of a lifestyle choice, there is no getting away from the inflated price of gluten –free food, so why not learn to make your own? D&D owned Cantina del Ponte, a rustic Italian trattoria next to the River Thames is running gluten –free master classes, dubbed the ‘Three Generations’ masterclasses due to the family friendly vibe; the classes are suitable for families ranging from young children to grandparents, providing the ideal opportunity for family members to bake and cook together. Despite the family friendly spin, everyone is welcome to learn the staples of maintaining a gluten free diet, Italian-style; think gluten –free pizza, pasta, bread and cakes._DSC3617
