A Must share - GluTEN FREE BAKERY

Andrea MaaseideComment

A couple of weekends ago I was in NY visiting the in-laws.  When we arrived after our 4 hour drive, my father-in-law surprised me with goodies from a local bakery, Wild Flours Bake Shop.  For those of you who know me well, you already know my whole sob story of having been a carb addict diagnosed with celiac a few years ago.  Obviously going gluten free was a game changer for me.  Not having stomach pain anymore was huge, but it was challenging to think that I would never again taste (really) good bread... until now.  Seriously, all it took was one bite of the Wild Flours dinner rolls and I was back in the car going to buy more bread to store in my freezer.  This stuff was amazing!

Wild Flours Bakery is a mecca for people with celiac or gluten sensitivity because their food is entirely gluten free (some of their items are even dairy free) and it is GOOD!

Here's the saving grace for those of us who don't live on Long Island... THEY SHIP!! You can order their baked goods and have them shipped directly to your door.  I don't have to drive 4 hours to get their delicious fresh baked goodies.  I know there are shipping costs, but it is worth it!  

With that said, if you don't want to go through the hassle or expense of shipping and you're a better baker than me (that's not too hard), there is hope.  The other morning, one of our clients gave me an equally good homemade gluten free bread.  The bread, a traditional Brazilian bread called Pao de Queijo (basically translated to cheese bread), is delish.

And I have the recipe (use tapioca flour where it says tapioca starch and 230C is ~450F)!  It's especially yummy on these cold, never-ending, winter days.  Enjoy!
