Italy Gluten free Food Tour with Niepi: Turin

 

Gluti is one of my favourite gluten free coffee shops in Turin and I am very happy today to be able to show it to Frédérique and Fabien from Niepi magazine for our Italy gluten free food tour.

Gluti is situated in the beautiful and elegant Via dei Mille, in the city centre.

The design is so cosy that is makes you feel well just by stepping inside.

Monica – owner and founder – created Gluti 4 years ago.

She used to be a dietician and worked for a big international company, which made her travel all over the world. One day she decided to rest a little and most of all change her lifestyle. One of her best friends has celiac disease and that made her aware of this food issue. At the time in Turin there were no places where you could buy fresh gluten free food for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

When she decided to open a coffee shop in Turin, Monica chose to propose both gluten free food and food with gluten.

But for those of you who are celiac like myself, there is no risk of cross-contamination because Monica worked also for the AIC – the Italian Celiac association – and leant very quickly how to make safe gluten free food. Her kitchen is equipped with two ovens and two working tables for example. She personally buys the delicious gluten free pastries that you can find at Gluti from renowned pastry shops in Turin that have been trained by the AIC as well. This means that the ateliers are suitable to make gluten free pastries with no contamination. Besides they are among the best pastry shops in town like Cravero: you can have a look at my older post about this place right here.

I love + love + love the gluten free brioche at Gluti.

It’s so moist and soft!

I have never ever eaten one that is gluten free and so good! You can have it also stuffed with chocolate or cream.

I also like the gluten free biscotti that are lactose-free.

At Gluti, you can always find Italian typical cakes like the crostata with fruit jam or the hazelnut cake made with the famous IGP round hazelnut from the Piemonte region.

The coffee shop is open for breakfast and for lunch.

For lunch there are fresh artisanal Italian panini and focaccia stuffed in several ways. There are also salads and soups that vary with the changing seasons and the vegetables that Monica finds at the market.

The wi-fi is free and works beautifully if you need to catch up with some work.

If you happen to travel to Turin, you can’t miss a gluten free breakfast at Gluti: it’s simply great!

Besides coffee is fantastic too and the cappuccino is also available with soya or rice milk if you can’t drink milk.

A big thank you to Monica and her husband: they always welcome me in with a smile and for me it’s a true pleasure to go back and see them every time I am in town.
