GLUTEN FREE BREAD
























































Last October I wrote a post in here about the Top 5 bestsellers at GF Patisserie. Not much has changed really in that ranking, maybe the selection has gotten bigger, people buy more different sweets now. But still, undisputed in the #1 spot, are GF Patisserie's breads.

It is a daily staple after all, and Celiacs do enjoy a good slice of it, Hamburger or Panini, very much like the rest of us.
Victoria and Lauren keep producing bread at a great pace, every week. Wednesday, Thursday there is a bit of a rotation with the selection, but come Friday & Saturday, they go all out with every bread available.


Especially on Saturday, by far the busiest day, Lauren starts much earlier to bake so she can make as many loaves as their ovens will let them.
And yet, sometimes, when clients come in after 2pm, all there is left are some frozen loaves or Hamburger buns.


Incredible really, if you think that not even a year ago Victoria was just starting to have this plan about going to the farmers' market and sell her gluten free baked goods. She has not decided yet which Farmers' market in Calgary to pick in this upcoming season, but I will let you know for sure.


Here are some images (best to click on them) of gluten free bread from GF Patisserie.

If I may weight in on the farmer's market decision - Calgary Farmers Market on Currie Barracks. Slowly but surely there are more and more GF products being offered there. And from a totally selfish point of view - I'd love to be able to get my GF baked goods, GF meats, and fresh fruit and veg all in the same stop! But really, in the end, we'll go wherever you are. I think you might have your own cult following!

Wouldn't that be nice.
Victoria lobbied very hard to get a spot into that location when she started looking two years ago, but at that time they turned her down due to competetive reasons.

Yes, I know there is no GF Bakery in there. Let's just leave it at that.
So now, I am sure you can imagine Victoria's opinion of THAT market...

Thanks Allie. It actually is somewhat of a hit around here.

Hi Shirley,

the weather in Calgary is very capricious, so all teh outdoor markets are very weather depending...plus a very short season. I think Victoria will find a good one.

Carbs are OK. Binges...well, what can I say?

The bread seems to be so good to Celiacs, tehy don't mind driving hours from around Alberta to visit the bakery....
