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.
