    Tears of Celiac Joy as Paris Bakeries Slowly Embrace Gluten-Free


    Jefferson Adams
    • Tears of joy roll down the faces of many celiac customers who travel to Chambelland bakery in Paris, where everything they make is naturally gluten-free.

    Tears of Celiac Joy as Paris Bakeries Slowly Embrace Gluten-Free

    Celiac.com 07/11/2018 - For people with celiac disease, finding decent gluten-free bread is like searching gold. Many have given up on bread entirely and others begrudgingly relate themselves to the ignominious frozen aisle at their supermarket and content themselves with one of the many dry, shriveled, flavorless loaves that proudly tout the gluten-free label. 

    For these people, the idea of freshly baked bread is a distant, if comforting, memory. The idea of going to Paris and marching into a boulangerie and walking out with a warm, tasty, gluten-free baguette that was freshly baked on the premises that morning, is like a dream. Now, in some Parisian bakeries, that dream is becoming a reality. And the tear of joy from the thankful gluten-free masses are sure to follow.

    These days, a single sign on the awning speaks to hungry customers who peruse the tarts and chou buns, and the loaves that fill the cooling on racks behind a glass pane at Chambelland boulangerie and café in Paris’ 11th arrondissement. The sign lettered in French translates: “artisan baker; flour producer; naturally gluten free.” That’s right. Naturally gluten-free. At a bakery. In Paris. 

    Only the flat, focaccia-style loaves, and the absence of baguettes, tells customers that this bakery is something different. Chambelland opened its doors in 2014 and continues to do a brisk business in delicious, freshly baked gluten-free breads and other goods.

    The boulangerie is the work of Narhaniel Doboin and his business partner, Thomas Teffri-Chambelland. They use flour made of grains including rice, buckwheat and sorghum to make delicious gluten-free baked goods. Doboin says that customers queued in the rain on the first day, hardly believing their eyes, some began to cry. 

    For gluten-free Parisians, there was a time before Chambelland, and the time after. If you find yourself in Paris, be sure to search them out for what is sure to be a gluten-free delight.

    Or maybe book your ticket now.

    Chambelland is great, Paris also has a few other entirely gluten free bakeries. Sitron and Helmut Newcake are two others to check out while you're there!

    We just returned from Paris and Noglu was my go-to several times during our vacation. Delicious and safe, since everything in their shop is gluten free.

    I was born Toulon, and have relatives in France, and they have been raving about ces boulangeries and begging us to visit again soon. We have plans for the fall, so we are continuing our research. Many thanks for this article and for the wonderful and informative responses!

    I love, love, love Noglu. I discovered it in 2015 and have been back several times since then. It is amazing!

    Venice Bakery Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts
    I happen to love thin crust pizza. The other day I had the good fortune to get my hands on a 12” Venice Bakery Gluten-Free Pizza Crust, and it looked as if it was made exactly how I like it—uniformly thin  throughout the entire crust. I was impressed by how perfectly formed this pizza crust was, and I also like the fact that it was larger than most crusts I’ve tried—it was big enough for my family of four.
    My family and I prepared the pizza together, and we added our favorite tomato sauce, cheese and gluten-free pizza toppings. We baked it in the oven as advised on the package for about 12-15 minutes at 475F, and the results of our minimal efforts were outstanding! The crust had excellent texture and tasted exactly how I expect great pizza to taste. My non-gluten-free family members (who can be more picky about some of the gluten-free products that I bring home!), absolutely loved this pizza!
    I would love to do an experiment with with this pizza and serve it to unsuspecting non-celiacs—I am certain that they would not only not detect that it was gluten-free, but would consider it an outstanding pizza crust!

    New Gluten-Free Bakery with a Famous Name!
    Celiac.com 04/30/2013 - In March of 2013, celebrity Jennifer Esposito opened her very own gluten-free bakery named "Jennifer's Way Bakery." You may recognize her from movies such as Crash and Summer of Sam. Her new establishment can be found in Manhattan's East Village.
    When Jennifer first started showing her odd symptoms she had no idea they were caused by celiac disease. She went years without treatment because of this. Symptoms included losing a tooth, hair loss, panic disorder, and the inability to stand.
    According to Allergic Living, Esposito lost a role on CBS's Blue Bloods after requesting reduced workloads because of her health conditions while she was recovering from years of untreated celiac disease. The network came to the conclusion that she was not able to spend the needed time to be on the show, and after a dispute it was no more.
    Jennifer has also been blogging gluten-free recipes on her blog, jennifersway.org for some time. She now appears happy to be participating in such a full-filling cause.
    While Jennifer was removed from CBS you can still catch her and her bakery on a show taking place all around New York called Playing with Fire on the E! Network.

    Celiac.com 10/02/2013 - The sad word has arrived that Sugar Shack Donuts at Leigh and Lombardy streets in Richmond, Virginia will no longer craft delicious gluten-free donuts and other gluten-free delights.
    Despite tremendous popularity, or, perhaps because of it, Sugar Shack Donuts has ended its vegan and gluten-free Specialty Sundays, and ceased making gluten-free doughnuts altogether.
    It seems that for every customer full of praise for Sugar Shack's gluten-free treats, there was another full of complaints about long lines and low inventory.
    Co-owner Ian Kelley says that for ever comment he got that his gluten-free creations were ‘the most amazing tasting things…ever,’” someone else would say ‘these are really good but I had to wait in line 45 minutes and could only get four of them.’”
    All of which helped to dampen the enthusiasm of co-owner Ian Kelley, and to kill Specialty Sundays.
    This news has left locals with a gluten-free sweet tooth wondering what their next option might be. One local option might be WPA Bakery in Church Hill, which serves gluten-free doughnuts made on dedicated equipment. Although a purist might point out that WPA’s doughnuts are baked, while Sugar Shack’s were fried.
    Either way, Sugar Shack's Specialty Sundays will be missed.

    Celiac.com 05/06/2016 - For an indication of just how quickly gluten-free food products are revolutionizing the food and beverage industry across the globe, look no further than the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
    Citizens of the UAE have high rates of diabetes. In fact, UAE ranks in the 10 top countries worldwide for the percentage of adults with diabetes. Other auto-immune conditions, such as celiac disease are also on the rise.
    Enter Tawa Bakery, the UAE's first dedicated gluten-free bakery which has opened on the Al Muneera Development at Al Raha Beach in Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital. Tawa offers a completely new experience for food lovers in the UAE with its 100 percent gluten-free menu, specifically designed to provide good, healthy food for people with auto immune disorders such as celiac disease.
    Launched by Dubai-based Glee Hospitality Solutions, Tawa Bakery mirrors the rising popularity of gluten-free diets across the globe in general, and in the region, in particular.
    Tawa offers a wide selection of breads, sandwiches, healthy meals, super foods, cakes and pastry items, all made with quality, healthy, organic and gluten-free ingredients.
    According to Abdul Kader Saadi, the managing director at Glee Hospitality Solutions, "Tawa Bakery is truly 100 per cent gluten-free and uses only those gluten-free items and ingredients to avoid cross contamination, with breads and baked goods to cater to the health dietary requirements of people."
