Fruits and vegetables are in full swing so join Award winning independent chef/instructor Oonagh Williams for a presentation on gluten free cooking followed by a gluten free vegan meal. Everyone is meant to be eating more fruits and vegetables, not just vegetarians, so join us and discover how delicious (and healthy) a meatless meal can be.
Chef Oonagh has a gluten and lactose intolerant son and has always cooked from scratch with real ingredients. It is wheat flour baking that has to be adapted to gluten free and Chef Oonagh has successfully done this.
At the Vegan Community Kitchen of Concord we welcome everyone. You don't have to be vegan or even vegetarian to participate in our programs and events. It's all about sharing great food and building a community of people that believe in making good lifestyle choices.

Gluten Free Living Presentation and Gluten Free Vegan Buffet Dinner, prepared from Chef Oonagh's recipes. British born, Award winning Chef/Instructor Oonagh Williams has a gluten and lactose intolerant son. Chef Oonagh successfully adapts regular flour recipes to gluten free, while cooking from scratch with easily obtainable real ingredients.
Chef Oonagh has been a featured Chef on WMUR's Cooks Corner for 10 years and all her recent recipes have been gluten free. Go to her web site www.RoyalTemptations.com to see clips on YouTube, plus gluten free credentials and some of the baked goods Chef Oonagh already makes.
We will also discuss the minefield and maze of trying to live gluten free affordably. All the recipes will be prepared with gluten free ingredients (and of course vegetables are naturally gluten free).
However, please note that the Vegan Community Kitchen is not a dedicated Gluten Free kitchen, but every care will be taken in preparing the buffet. Baked goods will be prepared in a Gluten Free kitchen.

More about Oonagh
Oonagh is a British Born award winning TV chef/instructor with a Culinary Arts degree from training in London and Switzerland, based in Merrimack NH. She has a gluten intolerant son, so she cooks from scratch with real ingredients, and successfully adapts regular flour baked goods to Gluten Free. Even though her son no longer lives at home, apart from buying regular flour bread and cereals, she cooks and bakes gluten free to make life easier.
Presentations and food demonstrations that Oonagh gives on gluten free foods have waiting lists since there is such a need for this information and few local resources. She has spoken with many people (predominantly women, who are statistically more likely to be celiac) who are trying to follow a gluten free diet and they find that few nutritionists are able to help them. There are not many that actually cook gluten free or have tried any of the gluten free products. They are told of nutritional deficiencies they need to address, but very few nutritionists (unless they are celiac themselves) can actually help them with cooking, baking, safe products etc.

Oonagh has been the featured chef on New Hampshire's WMUR ABC Channel 9's Cooks Corner for over 10 years. Clips from Cooks Corner and her 'Cooking with Oonagh' show are on the Videos page of the web site. Her last few appearances on Cooks Corner (on YouTube) have all been with gluten free dishes, either naturally gluten free or with gluten free flours.
