Gluten free course

Gluten free course

Surrounded by the pleasant and evocative atmosphere of the Castle of Costigliole d ‘Asti, academics and qualified chefs guide the participants through an educational path towards knowledge of a subject which we encounter daily in modern society.

Learning to cook gluten-free is a way to approach food intolerances and those who suffer from them. The purpose is to help those who live with this condition and who have to follow a specific diet which can sometimes be demoralizing and result in loss of appetite.
