I have just discovered Against the Grain baguettes! omg!! B) I almost cried. lol. It even has that chewy crust! I ate it with some brie cheese and it felt like the "old days" (i.e., back before I was diagnosed). So move over Udi's! (although, Udi's is the one to go to for a sandwich).

Where did you find the Against the Grain baguettes? I tried to google the company but only found a website that you have to fill out a form to get there catologe sent to you. I will eventually start to bake my own stuff. Just not right now.

I'm a huge Pamela's bread mix fan. I make it in a loaf or in free form rolls... I've even done the bagel variation w/ success. I have a KA mixer, which is awesome. I buy it in bulk bags.

How did you make free form rolls? If the bread mixes are like a thick batter dosen't it just run on the pan it you pour it to make rolls?

Like many of the above posts, I started out loving Udi's but it has been super inconsistent lately and for the price I just can't do it. I have switched to Rudi's which is actually a little cheaper in my area and in my opinion tastes much better.

I also love the Against the Grain baguettes. I make subs on them or eat them dipped in olive oil and spices. So yummy .

I've also started making my own. I have both the bread maker and stand mixer. I've been trying the mixes. So far just the Bob's Red Mill mix that came with the bread machine. It was okay but not the greatest. Any suggestions on mixes to use? I don't really have time to do anything from scratch right now.

I found the Against the Grain baguettes in a huge Whole Foods in Pittburgh. My Whole Foods (Arlington, VA) does NOT have them. :( However, it's a smaller store, and I know there's a bigger one out a ways from Arlington which I plan to call. I'm also going to talk to the manager of my store and see if he can order them.

Ha! I just clicked on the Against the Grain link above and discovered that my Whole Foods does carry Against the Grain. Supposedly. They lie. :lol: I'll be speaking to that manager! :P

It's like REALLY thick batter. I scoop out a blob and plop it onto a silpat (or parchment paper would work) and "form" it w/ my spatula. I get 9-10 rolls (maybe a teeny big bigger than a hamburger roll) from a loaf's worth of dough/batter.

My husband bought Rudi's at Costco! Can not believe the price as you get 2 loaves for just a bit more than the price of one at my local natural store! Very happy with it, unbelievable =) hope they continue to carry! Now I want to try Udis too and compare. Now if my local store carried French gluten-free my life would be complete =)

I get the AGAINST the Grain at Wegman's in Dale City in Virginia. We live in Old Town Alexandria, but my bf works in Quantico, so I make him take a detour on a regular basis.

Didn't read all the posts in this thread, but I have to say without a doubt, that for me the best bread would be Udi's. Why? Because it tasts super great, even when not toasted. :lol:

I was a Udi's guy for a while, but I personally found the bread to be too "airy", and it's often oddly misshapen.

However, I just tried Katz's Gluten Free white bread, and it's amazing.

A quick pop in the toaster, and I was unlike any gluten-free bread I've ever tried. Soft, chewy, and the crust didn't get super-hard like Udi's. Katz's was the most like real bread I've ever had. I'm excited to try out their other products.

They're so confident you'll like their stuff, they offer a FREE, that's right, FREE sample pack if you just pay the shipping.

Good luck, and enjoy.

NOTE: Katz's is an family company run by Orthodox Jews. I only mention this because even their website keeps holy the Jewish sabbath (Friday night to Saturday evening), and you cannot submit orders at that time.
