In The Kitchen with Beth Bakes

 

 

I was introduced to the gluten-free diet when my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Not as many store bought options back then and since I was an avid at-home baker I dove into gluten-free baking to provide her with the staples of a six year old’s social life. I’ve spent the last seventeen years experimenting with gluten-free baking (using friends and family as guinea pigs!) and developing recipes that are equal to, maybe better, than their gluten versions. I’ve also studied nutrition, whole grains, lower sugar content and have incorporated these things in to my own diet and baking.

Uncommon crackers that make everything taste better.

About the Bands

Lafayette, LA-based Beausoleil avec Michael Doucet has been one of the most esteemed Cajun groups in music since forming in 1975. BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet take the rich Cajun traditions of Louisiana and artfully blend elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues and more. From The Grand Ole Opry to Newport Folk, from concert hall to dance floor, the music of BeauSoleil captivates audiences the world over. Michael Doucet sings and plays violin, guitar, accordion and mandolin.

Accordion master Nathan Williams, of Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas, was mentored by one of the greats, Buckwheat Zydeco. He has been inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and has been honored with the Zydeco Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Formed in 1985, the band has brought its unique take on regional South Louisiana music around the world. Dennis Paul Williams, Nathan’s brother, brings his jazz-influenced guitar to the band.

The Knickerbocker All-Stars is made up of legends of the blues community who have found their home at the Knickerbocker, the historic venue in Westerly, R.I., that gave rise to Roomful of Blues, which launched the blues revival in the 1970s. Musicians in the All-Stars have included Jimmie Vaughan, Duke Robillard, Al Copley, Monster Mike Welch, Ricky Russell, Willie J Laws, Brian Templeton, Sugaray Rayford, Rich Lataille and more. For the Mardi Gras Ball, The All-Stars will be showcasing a set of New Orleans music classics with a special tribute to recently passed Fats Domino.

Vance Gilbert to appear at Tree of Life Coffee House

Last spring, it was announced that the long-running UU Coffeehouse folk and acoustic music concert series hosted by the Unitarian Universalist congregation would not continue. But apparently there was enough support for it that organizers have arranged to move it to the Tree Of Life synagogue on North Trenholm Drive, renaming it the TOL Coffeehouse Series.

Over nearly two decades, the concerts in their original form presented national touring musicians, mostly in the folk realm, and brought both well-known artists and new faces from Tom Russell to The Honey Dewdrops, The Kennedys, Dayna Kurtz, and many more.

The first season as TOL Coffeehouse offers a lineup very similar to the last few years, however, with Jack Williams (Jan. 6), Harpeth Rising (Mar. 17), and Vance Gilbert (April 21) also on the calendar.

The biggest change may be more on the culinary front. TOL has partnered with Groucho’s Deli to offer optional, additional-charge food options, meaning one can now make the coffeehouse an opportunity for a dinner and a show, possibly widening its appeal outside diehard folk fans.
