Anybody else been to Italy and tasted the deliciousness that is "Cereal" brand from the Farmacias?

Oh man. I am missing Rome and their gluten free kindness.

For those that are going to Rome anytime soon--La Soffitta in Piazza Risorgimiento (near the Vatican) is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!!!! And they are the sweetest people.

I've been to Rome many times but never with my celiac disease diagnosis. We go to Italy twice a year and then to our house in Croatia - thankfully there is so much fresh yummy stuff including grilled fresh fish and seafood. But I still really, really miss the authentic Italian pizza, breads, pastas and so on. What is served at La Soffitta? I've never eaten there.

It's gluten free heaven. They have pizza, pasta, dessert, and a dedicated fryer for calarmari/arancini etc. It was hands down the best food I have ever tested, both gluten-free and non gluten-free.

    • I make my old recipes all the time.   The only thing you have to be sure of is if your flour mix has xanthan gum or not.   If it doesn't then you will need to add a bit per cup.   Don't use too much or it will get gummy or spongy  (it's powerful stuff!!!)  Xanthan gum (or guar gum) is used in gluten-free baking because it is a binding agent that gives baked goods elasticity.

      Add 1/2 tsp. per cup of flour blend for cakes, cookies, bars, muffins.
      Add 1 Tsp. per cup if you are making yeast bread, pizza dough, other baked goods that call for yeast.
    • Try using the gluten-free blends in a about 1 to one replacement, first start off with about 1/4 less then add by the tbsp til the texture is about right, as gluten-free flours sometimes cause the end result to be a bit drier. I honestly make a sugar cookie with almond flour that works great for the holidays, I do not use dairy or creamy butter so mine is a bit drier and crsiper then those from my childhood (yes I miss those) But it helps a bit with that craving. I might dig up mine, they are grain free with a deep nutty flavor and drier PERFECT for dipping in coffee or almond milk.
    • Unfortunately it's too late for the blood test unless I go back on gluten again, which is not something I want to do.   Thanks for the link you shared. It is instructive.
    • Hi Jmg, and thanks for your response.   2 weeks ago I went gluten free without having tested for celiac. I know now that that was a mistake but unfortunately I did not know at the time. As I have been informed, to do a blood test one have to be on gluten for at least 6 weeks prior to the test.   In any case, by the end of the first gluten free week, I felt exceptional improvements in typical IBS symptoms. I had higher energy, and I generally felt much better. By the end of the second week, however, some of the symptoms began to recur, like fatigue and upset stomach.    I know I am a noob and probably I should wait longer for my system to stabilise, so, I apologise if my post is noobish.
    • VERY much so. as me and poster boy can both attest just because levels are normal does not mean you do not need more. HECK their was even talk about raising the FDA recommended daily value of it as it was the suggested minimum. Either Docters best glycinate before bed or if you have C issues or no D issues then perhaps natural vitality calm citrate version in small doses at first before adjusting up.
