Fresh bread for the family. No better time to make sandwiches. A quick egg salad, sliced radishes and and some Soppressata, dinner is done in 10 minutes.

good idea, it looks great!

Just thought I'd let you know that I have given Victoria's name, email address, and your blog address to a few people... one of whom is a contact for Sweetgrass Market. I'm not sure if you have heard of it, it just opened up in the Westhills area in Calgary on June 14th. I just found out about it last week, and got in contact with Anne Lambert to inquire if they had gluten-free items available. They don't, and she was quite interested to know if I knew of anyone that would possibly be interested as she gets asked the same question a lot.
So, she may be in contact with Victoria, it may not be the right situation to get into, basically just a shot in the dark, but who knows??!! Any opportunity is a great one... by the way, the web address for Sweetgrass is http://www.sweetgrassmarket.ca/
I haven't been there yet, but I plan to tomorrow.

Cheers,
Christa

hahaha... in all honesty, making sure the 'gems' in the gf community are recognised and heard about, is very important to me. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about 6 years ago and have seen huge improvement in products and knowledge in the community, but it could always be better. I have mentioned that I have 'tried' my own baking, and truly appreciate those who actually do it well!

It's all in putting yourself out there... I think creating a Facebook page would be huge, and would be a great promotional tool for GF Patisserie, and to advertise your blog on the Facebook page as well. As for the blog itself, I think it's great! Any advice, or info you can give others as far as your experiences, and places you have found that are knowledgable about Celiac/gluten, is golden. I've searched the internet for blogs about Celiac disease, and either I can't find any local ones, or the ones that are local, have stopped completely.

Keep doing what you're doing... it'll snowball faster than you think! I don't know if you have ever heard of 'Gluten-Free Girl', but I think she started out the same way, and ended up writing an amazing book! Her entries can get a little long-winded, but it's a great blog with a lot of fantastic recipes. The address is http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/

And, I'm very sad to say that I won't be there on Sunday to stock up! My husband and I will be out of town (as long as the rain lets up!). So, I will have to wait until the next Sunday for the famous bread and lemon loaf... good thing it's worth the wait!

Hi Christa,

please send an email to Lauren. She created a Facebook page already. She would love to add you. That is a bit more advanced than I can handle.
