We’ll be making shakshuka, a wonderful dish that originated in North Africa and then became popular in the Middle East. Shakshuka roughly translates to mean “mixture” and the dish is made up of simple and healthy ingredients (tomatoes, onions and spices) with eggs poached on top. Traditionally this dish is vegetarian, but in this class we’ll add a little spin of our own and incorporate some sausage. This is one of Jenny’s favorite dishes because of its versatility and because it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
ABOUT JENNY & LAULIMA KITCHEN
Jenny is dedicated to empowering people to feel confident in the kitchen. She currently is the owner of Laulima Kitchen, where she teaches virtual cooking classes specializing in simple, nourishing, and tasty gluten free foods. Jenny understands the difficulties of living with Celiac Disease and knows that learning to cook celiac-safe meals is more than just using gluten-free ingredients. During her classes, she incorporates kitchen safety tips, gluten free product recommendations, and time-saving cooking techniques.
The term “Laulima” in Hawaiian roughly translates to mean “many hands working together.” Jenny knows that Celiac Disease doesn’t just impact the life of the person diagnosed, which is why she encourages inviting friends and family members to also join her classes! Can you imagine yourself at a future gathering with loved ones where you feel confident in eating anything on the menu? With a little bit of time spent in the kitchen together, she believes that we can make that dream become a reality.
HOW IT WORKS
A few days before class:
- Purchase all of the necessary ingredients/equipment and make ingredient substitutions as needed. For substitution ideas, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Download (or update) your Zoom – it’s a free video software we’ll use for class.
On the day of class:
- Gather your ingredients and kitchen equipment. There’s no need to prep any ingredients, just have them available.
- Check back to the Eventbrite event page for access to the Zoom meeting link.
- Sign in to the meeting ~5-10 minutes prior to class to ask questions and make sure your technology is working.
- We’ll start class promptly at 6pm and enjoying cooking a delicious meal together!
- Do I have to be gluten-free to join the class? Nope. This class is designed for those who are gluten free, but you are more than welcome to come and learn some new cooking skills and make some delicious food together.
- Why should I take this gluten free class rather than just follow a recipe? Cooking celiac-safe meals is more than just using gluten-free ingredients. During her classes, Jenny incorporates kitchen safety tips, gluten free product recommendations, and time-saving cooking techniques. There are a lot of skills / tips / and tricks to take away that will make you an even better cook!
- Do I have to cook during the class? Nope. You are more than welcome to come to class to gain some new knowledge from Jenny. We just prefer to learn through cooking!
- How many people can join for an event? Each ticket is valid for one device, but it doesn’t matter whether it’s just you or your family watching through that device.
- Can I log onto Zoom through my phone? It is possible to sign into zoom through your phone, but we do recommend using a computer if you have access to one.
- Does it matter which time zone I’m in? Nope! One of the beautiful things about online classes is that participants can join in from anywhere as long as they have access to Zoom!
