The guide contains tips and recipes from a team of passionate volunteers, who perhaps like you or a family member, face the challenges of celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity during a time of the year when food-centred activities take place.

​If you have enjoyed the support, education and information from CCA over this past year, we hope that you will consider a donation towards our annual Festive Campaign. Donations allow our charity to continue to advocate on your behalf, increase access to safe foods and improve the quality of life of people with CD and NCGS through investing in research and education, and more.

Wishing you all a fun and gluten-free holiday season!

Best wishes,

Gluten-free Christmas baking workshop

There are few gifts more heart-warming than a gift of home-made Christmas goodies. Come and learn the stress-free way to make delicious Christmas treats for your friends and family on our gluten-free Christmas baking course.

Whether baking for friends and family or baking for yourself, you’ll be introduced to flours and techniques that will help demystify the process of gluten-free baking, and help you produce top-quality treats, no matter the season.

Hosted by Angela Petrie of Okanagan Gluten Free Consulting and gluten-free pastry cook Elana Westers, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of baking while having your questions answered about living a gluten-free or dairy-free lifestyle.

Workshop Overview:

  • Get hands-on and help bake delicious Christmas classics – all made gluten-free in a celiac friendly kitchen
  • Learn how to adapt existing recipes, by exploring a range of gluten free flours and starches, and how to combine them to get the results you want
  • Learn the secrets behind baking chemistry, and the properties of common baking ingredients including substitutions for eggs, dairy and sugar

Everyone will leave with a tray of yummy Christmas treats for all the family to enjoy. Desserts covered on the course may include brandied fruit and streusel bars, hazelnut chocolate orange biscotti, chewy ginger cookies, and apple almond puddings with a spiced vanilla cream.
