Gluten Free FOCACCIA! With Conny/June19th

You think gluten-free tastes like cardboard? Come and join the class and find out how delicious it can taste!

We are learning about different flours to use in gluten-free baking and an awesome ingredient to hold it all together.

You will taste different focaccias, get your hands on making a dough and the best part is to decorate your focaccia to take home after baking!

Bring your own beverage and let’s have fun!

Please be aware the class is not situated for severe gluten intolerant people since there will be cross contamination with wheat flour.


My name is Conny. I’m born in Germany and lived there until my mid 30s. My Mom and Grandma were the first to teach me how to cook and bake. They did it so well my first idea about an occupation was to be a cook!

After I moved to America I was home to raise my boys. During this time I spend lots of time in the kitchen to feed my family. My boys know a lot of German dishes!

During this time I started cake decoration and made all the birthday cakes for my family. I also made petit fours for weddings and baked bread for a restaurant.

Later on I worked as a cook and baker in a wonderful tea house in Ohio, had an episode as head cook for a middle school in Waukee and recently helped prepare delicious dishes at the Wallace Centers of Iowa. 

I’m the owner of SunRose Bakery where I focus on baking gluten-free and vegan goods. 

I’m very happy to teach you my favorite German dishes!
