Do I like it gluten free or do I like it with gluten?
Hello I am Miss Zen, the insider / outsider in the gluten free world for Baci di Dama. Living gluten free!
I keep going through my journey into this world that is new to me as I regularly eat gluten.
This time, I wanted to test gluten free pasta. I asked some advice to my favorite expert Chiara and went straight to my organic store Sequoia in Brussels.
Maybe it was the Summer or the growing success of the “no-gluten movement” but I could not find any gluten free pasta: the aisles were empty. I did not want to try corn/rice/whatever pasta.
So I changed my plan I decided to try bread and cookies.
I already knew the delicious “Generous” cookies brand (which I’m proud to have introduced to Chiara) so I opted for another brand to try “Les recettes de Céliane” the nuts variant (http://www.lesrecettesdeceliane.com)
The bright side, I could not tell any difference in terms of texture: it tasted exactly the same as the regular brands.
The down side: those cookies were awfully sweet, too sweet for my taste.
As usual, I asked my son to taste and he liked them a lot. He has a serious sweet tooth… So if you like sweet treats, you should try them….
Then I picked up my first gluten free bread. The fresh bread aisle was almost empty too. I was so disappointed!
I found some industrial version from the brand Schär. It was the only choice I had and I needed bread to prepare the picnic for my son summer camp. So I went for it……(I hope that my friend Chiara will not be too upset as she suggested better to start with artisanal, fresh gluten free bread)
