Availability Of Specialty Flours/ingredients In Edmonton

Recommended Posts

I am new here (and to celiac!) and am practically salivating reading about the food options available I was unaware of. When I found out I tested positive for celiac disease I was devastated but am now over the shock. I instruct cooking classes so that will be a bit of a challenge! It will be fun to experiment with various flours and so on. I am bound and determined to come up with brilliant and wonderfully delicious pastas, breads, etc.

Anyway, are (m)any of the specialty flours and other ingredients available in Edmonton? If so, where? We live three hours northeast and in the past have gone to Edmonton for culinary weekends. I have yet to go to any of the stores there for gluten-free goods.

Thanks!

Also, if you are teaching cooking classes, be aware of cross contamination issues.

It is really not good for you to be in a room with lots of wheat flour flying around. It takes as little as a crumb to make you sick. Some people get sick just from breathing it in. Also be careful of using wooden spoons, colanders, and scratched non-stick cooking pots and pans that have been used for regular cooking. These can all harbour gluten residues.

I would join your local Celiac Association. You can get flours at Super Store and Kinnick (I can never spell their name). If you ever come down to Calgary you need to check out G.F. Patisserie. They make the best gluten free products! YUM! Also we have Copper Pot Creations which makes frozen meals.
