Against The Grain Gourmet

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got a notice on listserv about this company. There line will be distributed in Atlanta (and East Coast) starting this month (freezer section of health food stores). I have never heard of them and can't find a review on this board about them. They are based in Vermont and make baguettes, pizza shells. bagels and artisan breads in a ded. gluten free facility. Has anyone tried any of their products and if so, are they any good?

They are based in Brattleboro Vt. I have not tried them yet, but a friend has. She said they were amazing, especially the baguettes. They are made with tapioca flour, eggs, mozzerella and a couple other things. Not good if you are dairy free.

Yea! I eat plenty of dairy but would love to get baguettes locally rather than in TN. The distributor is going to let me know when/where they are in Atlanta area. If you want to find out if they will be coming to a freezer near you, go to www.unfi.com which is United Foods site, which is the distributor. You have to e-mail the person for your region under contact us tab.

You can't beat Everybody Eats Baguettes & crusty rolls.... I've tried many including MR.Ritts & haven't found no one to touch the quality or taste...

And a tip from Jmunchkin (Jillian) I'm waiting with drooling mouth for the bagels & muffins from Joan's gluten-free bakes to arrive tommorrow!!!

I'm at a point now that I want the best of the gluten-free world.....for my family.....

Personally I'm sick of paying overnight shipping costs to get food that I throw out which has now happened to me more times that I can count. I asked Everybody Eats if they'd bill shipping to my Fedex acct. and they would not so I won't order from them. Every other vendor has done that for me which saves me 40%. The bread from Against the Grain Gourmet has rave reviews even from people who eat gluten so it'll be worth the few weeks wait so I don't pay shipping charges (they won't ship direct to consumers). I do still order Bi-Aglut pasta but at least that can ship ground. Also I got the Gluten Free Oats brand of oats and that was more than worth the shipping..........so great to finally have some hot oatmeal again.

United Foods rep. just got back to me. There is no plan at present to bring this line to Atlanta. They are starting off slowly in the NE - distribution warehouse is in Chesterfield Vermont (I think) but I don't know where they would ship to. You can contact them for stores as stated in my first post above. I'm so bummed.......maybe eventually it will get down here.

Hey mamaw (and any other Everybody Eats fans out there) -

Last year I ordered a ton of stuff from their during their holiday special sale. I haven't heard anything about it this year, but I have moved since then. Do you know if they're doing that again this year??

TIA!

Hi Lauren

I haven't talked with Bruce since early November so I can't say. You can give him an e-mail & ask. I know since the foods are now in many NJ & NY health stores they are quite busy so maybe they will not do that again. I bought a hugh supply when I seen them...

Where did you move to?

I'm really curious about the new one: Against the grain gourmet.. It seems to be another positive food line...But I don't think I will be able to purchase since they do not have any places in Pa yet....I wish I could order directly but that is not possible either..Some of these companies make it a major task to buy their products..I'm used to getting stuck with crazy shipping cost-- I don't like them but if you want it you have to pay the piper,I guess.I have no way to get free shipping.

wow. that is great that the new kid on the block is wonderful & cheaper then Everybody eats.... I love competition. Now, if only it wouldn't be so hard to get the product.I can't understand why when someone has found a good thing that they want to make it difficult to find or order. I would think they would want all the exposure they could find before someone else comes up with something just as good & makes it easy to obtain. I just don't get that...

Someone will need to start shipping out for all of us to try......

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    • Fmbm, Most fortified foods contain the Alpha form of Vitamin E. It (E) and Vitamin A used to be recommended for Lung Cancers but when the Alpha form of E showed no benefit upon a follow up study Vitamin E has fallen out of favor. Try a whole food source when possible.  Sunflower and Sesame seeds and raw Almonds are all good sources of Vitamin E. Here is a good article on the benefits of Sesame seeds for Vitamin E. http://inhumanexperiment.blogspot.com/2009/01/sesame-seeds-increase-absorption-of.html If you take Vitamin E as mixed (all the tocohpherols) or a Gamma form you are more likely to benefit from taking Vitamin E. Here is the National Institute of Health page on Vitamin E. https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminE-HealthProfessional/ Fbmb (be careful) Life extension magazine are trying to sell you their vitamins but they usually have good research. If you want to read about why mixed (gamma and alpha) forms are better together then read this article. http://www.lifeextension.com/Magazine/2011/1/Critical-Importance-of-Gamma-E-Tocopherol-Continues-to-Be-Overlooked/Page-01 luckily most food forms are naturally balanced .. . while fortified foods typically only has the alpha (synthetic forms) and that is because it is the form measured easiest in the blood though as I understand it gamma is the more potent form in the body. I had a friend who swore by it (Vitamin E) in megadoses for his cholesterol but Vitamin E in the Alpha form at least didn't seem to help mine. But I did find raw almonds (or just Almonds) and Sesame seeds helped. Walnuts are also a source of Vitamin E and they are heart healthy too if you can  afford them. ****this is not medical advice but I hope this is helpful. Posterboy,  
    • My understanding is that some wheat has lower amounts of gluten.  If you have Celiac, that doesn’t matter.  But if you don’t have Celiac but have another issue - like a FODMAP problem- that might be OK.  
    • Thank you so much. This has been very helpful. I will pursue with PC. Appreciate your insights.  
    • What is the difference between American flour and wheat flour from Finland? When we lived in Scandinavia my wife could eat bread with wheat flour. We moved to Texas six years ago and my wife became severely intolerant to wheat. She can't have the smallest crumb without a reaction. She gets bumps and severe abdominal pain. Anyway, we decided to have some wheat flour shipped from Finland. My wife has baked bread and cakes with the flour from Finland now, and has not had a reaction as yet! Yes, she is still careful. She is afraid to overdo it and suffer, but so far she has been doing OK.  She has also met others that have been able to tolerate European flour, but not American. My wife has also tried other European flour, but still experienced problems, so there seems to be something different about the Finnish flour. It contains gluten, but I believe that the gluten content may be slightly lower, while the flour is top quality and makes awesome bread and cakes.  Also food grown in Finland are some of the most wholesome you can find anywhere.  I am interested in finding out if anyone else have a similar experience. My wife is continuing to bake with Finnish wheat flour and seem to be able tolerate it.
