Gluten Free, ain't a problem
Along a quiet Paris side street, I stepped into a pastry shop advertising gluten free baked goods. The case was full of amazingly beautiful French pastries (and probably not gluten free.) I sighed as I eyed the case looking for the allergy-friendly section. Nothing was labeled. “Excusez-moi, Monsieur, which pastries are gluten free?” I asked the man behind the counter. He smiled at me, “Mademoiselle, everything. Everything is gluten free.”
He leaned forward and said in a whispery French accent, “Here, you can eat it all.”
I thought I would burst into tears! I was so used to being told, “we have ice cream that is gluten free” or “This salad is gluten free.” Life with food allergies can be so isolating, but not anymore.
Here at The Gluten Free Baking Company, we know how complicated each day is when you simply cannot eat certain foods. We strive to make amazing baked goods that taste so good you want to share them with your family and friends.
Announced by the Union Tribune, as one of the most highly anticipated openings of 2020, our dedicated gluten free retail location opened its doors in February 2020, in North Park. The GF collective, our second location, opened its doors in May 2022 in our bakery facility in Clairemont.
Here, you can eat it all.
