Einkorn Cookbook Author-Led Discussion and Tasting

Date & Time: 
Aug 17 2017 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Join Carla
Bartolucci, founder of Jovial foods and Bionaturae products and author of
"Einkorn, Recipes for Nature's Original Wheat," to learn of her
personal journey bringing health and wellness back to her daughter. The
Bartoluccis re-discovered einkorn after their daughter was diagnosed with
severe gluten sensitivity. Because einkorn has never been hybridized, it is
much weaker and easier for our bodies to digest (it is not recommended for
those with Celiac Disease). Carla will discuss einkorn, her cookbook, and open
up to Q&A's, and offer samples of freshly prepared einkorn breads and more.
You'll receive a free bag of einkorn flour with the purchase of her book after
class (purchase not required to attend class).

Presenter:
Carla Bartolucci
