We love Chebe, a Naturally Gluten Free Bread Product & a Company Committed to being Allergen Friendly!
Recently we did a gluten free event at Wegman’s in Fairfax Virginia and we represented a wonderful company called Chebe. The company’s creators, Dick Reed and his Brazilian wife Ju, were inspired by a naturally gluten free bread served everywhere in Brazil called pao de queijo. They came back to the United States and decided to recreate and share this wonderful bread for the US market. In the beginning they did not have the gluten free community in mind until Ju started having health issues that led her to avoid gluten. This made them more aware and driven to keep their products gluten free and allergen friendly.
I found out a while back that RP’s Pasta Company started selling their gluten free FRESH pasta at a store near us (Roots Market). After calling Veronika and telling her one of our dreams had come true I jumped in my car and went to buy some fresh pasta for the first time ever in my life. They make gluten free linguini and fusilli. I tried the linguini first. It was so fast and easy to make (only 2-4 minutes). I just dressed it with a bit of garlic olive oil and some Parmesan so I could really taste the pasta. It was soft, creamy, and absolutely delicious!! Now, since I have never tried fresh pasta before I had my husband and friend try it and they also couldn’t get over how great it tasted. They would have never guessed it was gluten free!
Who doesn’t love pizza??? My friend told me that one time she walked to her local pizza place to buy a little ball of fresh dough (did you know you can do that?!!) so she could make delicious pizza herself. I envied my friend’s ability to do that. And do you know how several grocers and markets have bags of fresh dough next to all of their yummy pizza fixings? Well, I used to walk down the aisle looking at the dough longingly, my stomach grumbling for a gluten free version.
You know when something is so easy that you think you’re doing it wrong? Has this ever happened to you? Well, this is how I feel about Cybele Pascal’s Beer Bread. I’ve been baking it once a week for a little over a month now and I STILL double check everything because it’s just so simple (but oh so delicious) that I think I’m forgetting something!
