Dairy Free Desserts Seminar NEW!!
9am - 3:30pm
Taught by: Malcolm Stogo
For the past three years we have successfully presented Dairy Free Ice Cream Seminars too sold out classes. We are so proud of this success because we have been able to create a niche category in the dessert business that is becoming hugely more popular every year.

From the comments and advise of many our students, they have asked us to expand the seminar to include dairy free baked goods, so that when entering the dairy free dessert business they can have a fuller menu to present to their customers.

We listened, and now this coming October 28 thru 30th, we will present our first DAIRY FREE DESSERT SEMINAR.

We hope if you are interested, you will join us!
