Gluten-free cookbook available at Farmer’s Market

For the past two and a half years, Heidi and Alex have been testing recipes on an ever-growing number of enthusiastic customers.

HEIDI AND ALEX are sharing gluten-free recipes.

Perhaps you have made or been forced to make the choice to limit or delete gluten from your diet. What do you eat new, you ask? Open Sweet Surprise Gluten-free Baking and find out!! If you are living gluten-free and live here in the Comox Valley it’s likely that you’ve already heard about or visited the Sweet Surprise Gluten-free baking stand at the Farmer’s Market.

For the past two and a half years, Heidi and Alex have been testing recipes on an ever-growing number of enthusiastic customers. In their words “the best part of having the business is reaching out to those who haven’t had focaccia in years or tasted a gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and soy-free carrot cake that you could serve to anyone without them even suspecting.”

After repeated requests the ladies decided to share the secrets in their very own cookbook with Nikki’s photographic help. Easy-to-follow recipes ranging from delicious breakfast items like waffles and pancakes to breads that actually taste and fell like bread, as well as cookies, bars and scrumptious cakes so good no one will even know the results are gluten and usually dairy-free.

The cookbook will be available at the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays from 9 to noon at the Native Son’s Hall as well as the Laughing Oyster in Courtenay, Blue Heron in Comox, Healthyway Natural Foods Market and Coho Books in Campbell River and Willow Market in Willow Point as well as bookstores and health food stores on the south island.

For more information, call 250-338-4470, e-mail heidi.sweetsurprise@gmail.com or search Facebook for sweet surprise gluten free baking.
