So lately I have been craving all sorts of baked goods that I can't have. Sure I could make a gluten version of nearly all of them, but that's more work for a simple craving. But its not like I can go to the nearest bakery and pick up goodies, because even if they did have some gluten free items, most likely there would be cross contamination, with all the regular flour in the air. So I decided to search for a bakery that was gluten free, ANY bakery. Turns out there is one only fourty five minutes from me. Which considering the fact there were only 4 bakeries that I could find in Utah, I was rather pleased. So, on Friday we drove down to Sandy from Salt Lake to try it out. It's a family run bakery, and they all have Celiac, so you can pretty much GUARANTEE its safe. But we tried nearly every item on the menu. Or at least, a flavor of one of everything. SO DELICIOUS! They have these sandwiches made with corn flatbread which they call Arepas. (Based on the South American bread of the same name) SO GOOD! And the soups are all homemade as well, and utterly delicious. Everything is fresh, and homemade (obviously), and the arepas are made right there in front of you.
I also would like to note that even my husband who is a heavy gluten eater when I am not around, loved it. He is the one who has actually been recommending it to everyone and their mothers. *chuckle* I'm so thrilled.
So if you ever hit the Salt Lake area, definitely stop by Eleanor's Bakeshop. Its a must have. Plus the people there are so friendly and love to chat, so it definitely is welcoming. Oh very cheap in the way of gluten free goes.
