Gluten free bread in Auckland

ssamjang | Jan 3, 2010 12:48 AM

Just in case anyone out there is gluten free, I can definitely recommend the bread they make at the Baker's Gallery bakery (1052 Beach Road, Torbay, North Shore -09 473 1161). Unfortunately it's a bit far flung in Auckland's northernmost suburb but worth the drive as the bread is definitely the most palatable GF that I have found so far - infinitely superior to anything I have ever bought at the supermarket and I have tried most of them!

The GF cheese bread is my favourite - very cheesy and it toasts really well and fills the room with a cheesy aroma. They also have pesto, sundried tomato, and plain versions. The consistency is good - neither rubbery nor crumbly.

It's very popular so it can pay to call ahead and order a loaf especially if you are going on the weekend.

In my opinion, this bread is like other GF that I have tried and is best well toasted - a couple of times down in the toaster so it's nice and browned and crispy. I still can't quite get used to GF-bread sandwiches even with this bread!

Does anyone alse in Auckland have any recommendations for good GF bread in the metropolitan area?
