Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery – When Life Gives You Lemons…
During our visit to U & I Thai on Cambie last December, we noticed a bakery across the street had recently opened up. The thing that made us take notice was that it was a gluten free bakery. I know… that’s like a Thai restaurant without curry.
Well, we were intrigued since gluten helps to give baked goods that nice fluffy texture and we’ve honestly had some poorly executed gluten free baked goods before. To dedicate an entire bakery to being gluten free must mean that they are pretty confident that they’ve got it nailed down.
As it turns out, the decision to go gluten free was a necessity to pastry chef Tracy Kadonoff as she developed a gluten intolerance. Instead of chucking it all away, she grabbed the “lemons that were given to her” and created Lemonade.
Chocolate Hazelnut Brioche – these little indulgences are baked fresh daily. Note: I think they’ve tweaked the recipe recently to make the brioche even lighter and more buttery.
Speaking of lemons… the Lemon Meringue Tart was awesome – had the perfect amount of tartness to it.
So, when life hands your lemons, don’t frown… just head down to Lemonade and pick up some yummy treats.
