Before I dabbled in the gluten-free bread baking arts, I had no idea that Pinoys would crave this stuff. More and more people are experiencing the benefits of the gluten-free lifestyle or are trying to heal whatever health problems they have holistically through diet. I’m thrilled to help out in any way I can – if my obsession with alternative (and vegan) cooking and baking can support people’s health goals, well and good.
Enter: gluten-free bread. Two establishments are currently carrying my bread: Edgy Veggy Cafe in Kapitolyo, Pasig and Corner Tree Cafe on Jupiter St, Makati. Edgy Veggy delivers to select cities in Metro Manila – see my previous blog post on the bread for more details. You can also pick up from Corner Tree Cafe in Makati.
And, if you frequent the southern Metro Manila areas, I carry my own bread too! Send me a message 0917-894-5086. This is perfect if you desire freshly baked bread straight from the source (Alabang). P130 per loaf.
One last thing: apart from 1 pound oval loaves, I also carry gluten free baguettes. I know it sounds impossible, but it ain’t. P130 per baguette.
I’m currently experimenting with more gluten-free alternatives and more bread for sure. Who knows, maybe you’ll see me purvey gluten free pan de sal, ciabatta bread, pizza dough crusts… desserts are somewhere on the horizon.
Okay, second last thing:
I do occasionally bake gluten-free sweets. These chocolate chip cookies taste exactly like the regular stuff (some say even better). I’ve made ’em with cacao nibs as well – less processed than chocolate but with the same chocolate goodness – and they are amaze-balls. Not that I encourage you to eat cookies to enjoy the health benefits of cacao nibs… More on why cacao nibs are awesome here. P375 for a box of 14 cookies.
These are sweetened with coconut sugar too, because I hate diabetes just as the next person.
If you are a fan of gingersnap cookies, you’re in luck because I make those gluten-free, too (no photo, unfortunately). P325 for a box of 12 cookies.
How to get said cookies? Order through Edgy Veggy (0917-847-4831) or send me a text (0917-894-5086).
