I finally got to the store by me.. called Epicure. He had everything. He carried Everybody Eats stuff.. let us try samples of all this stuff.. french bread, choc chip cookies, blueberry pie, we didnt sample the cakes, but they looked great.

I bought raviolis, the french bread and the cookies. My mom ordered the stuffing for Thanksgiving. I will have to see how that tastes. He had a whole turkey dinner sampling last week, I didnt know then.. shucks!

My mom also wants to order the pies for the holiday. She really hates to bake, nevermind gluten free. She wants to order a pumpkin pie (I know easy to make) so he invited me in next week, he will have both pies defrosted for me to sample which one I like best and add it to my moms order.

I cant wait. He has two freezers and two fridges filled with gluten free goodies. It was amazing. I cant wait to try my gluten free think crust pizza. He makes chicken croquettes too. I am hungry just thinking of it.

Enough babbling.. thanks for listening.. I get so excited with things like this...

Epicure is located in Spring Lake, NJ. Central Jersey shore area. I tried only the french bread, choc chip cookies (which are from Everybody Eats) and these absolutely incredible mini donuts.. they look like munchkins.. and taste like them too. If I didnt know any better I would have sworn they were from Dunkin Donuts! I will give more info on the products as I taste them. I will find out if he will be going online. I know within the next 30 days he will have a web site up and running.

I will let him know of the interest...

Epicure

Chris Bachetti who owns this store is a great guy. He has several good lines including Everybody Eats & the Grainless Baker.I'm glad to hear his store is taking off as he works hard.... I haven't spoke to him for a few months but I'll have to give him a call.

If you haven't tried Everybody Eats baguettes & crusty rolls you are missing out...... they are the very best out in the gluten-free world.

For a excellent glazed donut try Celiac specialities. Not sure if Chris carries that one yet.

If you look on everybody eats website they have a growing list of stores that are carrying their foods in NJ.You may even find one closer to you. I believe Chris supplies those stores....

For pumpkin pie I never bought one as I alway make my own but if you don't want to bother with a crust just grease the pie plate or dish & make the filling according to the directions on the back of the pumpkin can & bake according. No crust but it still is the filling. We add whipped cream after baking. Most of my family leaves the most of the crust anyway. Less calories too!

ahhh.. I guess you live in the area mamaw! Yes Chris is a great guy. I am going there on Wednesday to sample the two pumpkin pies he carries. I bought the french bread to try.. he gave me a sample at the store that he toasted up a bit.. even my mom loved it and she isnt a celiac!

Have you ever been there for his tastings? He said there is some special gluten free dinner going on in South Amboy in a few weeks. I am dying to go.. its like 20.00 a person. Do you know anything about that? If so, please pass on any info you may have!!

I finally found the answer to my own question mamaw.. the gluten free dinner is in Perth Amboy at a Portugese Restaurant. The RSVP was November 3. I wrote an email to the lady running it asking if it was way too late to stick two more people in.. the worst she can say is no.

Its a benefit to help kids in celiac camp during the summers. I hope I can go. It will be so exciting to meet others with the same thing that I have.

Hi Stephanie

I wished I lived in the area!!!!! I met Chris this pass summer & we became friends.... I actually live near Pittsburgh Pa........I didn't know about the dinner but it sounds like it will be very nice & for a great cause too!!!!That's great that Chris does the samplings so that way one is not buying a pig in the poke .... I hate to waste hard earned cash on foods I can't eat.....

The french bread you tried was it Everybody Eats or the Grainless Baker's??? I know the owners of that too. I have met pretty much all of the vendors at one point or another.Store owners too.I travel around searching for good stuff!!!!!When I know of a good product or a good store to shop I help promote them...such as Chris. He is a hard worker tryin to make a living for his family......

The french bread is Everybody Eats. I toasted it last nite to eat with my moms pea soup. OMG, it was like normal bread. I didnt even have bread envy for anyone elses bread! I have the grainless baker crackers. They are onion and cheese. They are pretty good.. great consistency.. but very very oniony. I am going to try to call about the dinner later this evening. I emailed and havent heard back yet.. I hope I can go. It is a great cause. If I cant go.. I can still give a donation.. I will do that too.
