Come to the Comox Library on June 12 at 2 p.m. to hear how mother-daughter team Heidi and Alex Lochmatter started a baking business after finding out their husband and father, Fred, was much healthier following a diet free of gluten, soy and dairy products.
Instead of crumbly, unsatisfying products that use a confusing array of flour mixes, Heidi and Alex developed a single flour mix that is gluten-free and can be used in any of their recipes. They developed recipes especially for breakfasts, including waffles, crepes and scones — the meals that people miss most when they go gluten-free.
Heidi will read from her new cookbook Sweet Surprise: Gluten-free Baking, and will share tips and tricks of how you, too, can live a gluten-free or grain-free lifestyle.
Heidi sells her baking every Saturday at the Comox Valley Farmer’s Market in Courtenay and says she is most inspired about her “ability to share amazing recipes and enrich lives.”
This is a free event that all are welcome to attend. For more information drop by the library at 1720 Beaufort Ave., call 250-339-2971 or visit www.virl.bc.ca.
