Gluten-free Cooking Lessons with Karen Kelso (Booking a room not required; additional fees will apply**)
At Little Aruba B&B, Karen will offer the unique opportunity for gluten-free dining and instruction. Karen was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2014 and our daughter was diagnosed a year later. Our hearts go out to those newly diagnosed with Celiac disease and/or just beginning the gluten-free lifestyle. Despite feeling overwhelmed with her new diagnosis, Karen worked hard to master gluten-free cooking and it is her goal to help others achieve this as well.
The cost for our gluten-free cooking lessons will vary depending on the unique needs and wants of the individual booking the lesson. The expense of the ingredients and the intensity of the labor involved in the chosen recipes will dictate the charge. Potential guests would decide with Karen (prior to booking) what recipes/dishes would be prepared; Karen will then be able to give a quote and make adjustments to the menu if needed to help make sure guests get the best experience possible for their investment.
At Little Aruba, we have a 100% gluten-free kitchen that will hopefully give our guests the peace of mind they need to truly relax and enjoy their stay with us, and it will give those interested in learning more about gluten-free cooking the perfect venue for learning.
