Virtually meet one of our stellar new Sales Associates, Stephanie, as she makes her famous Gluten-Free Brownies. She brought them in for us to try and we were blown away and we insisted she host a cooking demo to share the recipe. She developed the recipe with her former colleague, Franzi while she was the chef at Local in Brunswick. The name Franzi’s Gluten-Free Brownies stuck and now you get to try them, too!
