Learn to Make Healthy Desserts for the Holidays

Amy Nadeau

Chef Amy Nadeau, owner of Amy Nadeau Food and Nutrition, is teaching a two-part cooking class featuring healthful and delicious desserts, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., on November 15 and 22, in Minneapolis.

Nadeau, a chef, caterer and nutritional therapist, offers classes as well as one-on-one support for those wanting to improve their health through nutrition. She is also a personal chef and has been working in the food industry for more than 37 years.

In the first week, participants will learn how to make decadent chocolate pudding with a creamy secret ingredient, a tart and delicious lemon curd, a spicy and sweet pumpkin dessert and more. The second week focuses exclusively on scrumptious, velvety European style chocolate truffles suitable for gift giving.

“Unfortunately for some, eating sugary treats can cause very unpleasant side effects including digestive upset, mood swings and a general feeling of sluggishness. People who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance aren’t able to enjoy many of these foods and feel left out of the fun,” explains Nadeau. “I can help you prepare sweet treats that all of your holiday guests can enjoy—even those with dietary restrictions and food intolerances.”

Cost: $125 for both classes or $80 for one. All recipes are included as well as multiple tastings. Location: SpringHouse Ministry Center, 610 W 28th St., Minneapolis. To register, call 612-239-7525, email [email protected] or visit
