Breaking (gluten-free) bread with an old friend

Filed under: Uncategorized |


Hello, readers. Happy 2010. I’m back – sorry for he hiatus. I was busy ghostwriting a memoir. I do that. It’s my bread and butter.

Speaking of which… This week, Jenifer Constantine, proprietrix of Market Market Cafe, was so kind as to bake a loaf of gluten-free bread for me to have my sandwiches on.

Jenifer’s bread turned out great. Firm but a little springy, tasty, fresh – not cardboard-y like so many gluten-free loaves. On Monday, I had a ham and cheese presse on it and it was quite good. Not only did I enjoy the taste and the texture, I also took pleasure in feeling like a normal person eating a sandwich on normal, white, fluffy bread.

Today, I had a toasted, buttered slice with my soup and salad. I felt like standing up and showing everybody, “Look! I have toast!” (You’d probably have to have celiac or some other condition that requires you to eat gluten-free in order to appreciate that feeling.)

Ironically, I bumped into an old writing workshop cohort there today. It turns out she eats gluten-free, too, and was thrilled to have some of the bread as well.

In a few weeks Jenifer will likely bake more of this bread. If you’re gluten-free, you’ll definitely want to stop in and give it a try.
