|Summary||This bakery in NYC is a favorite of the gluten free community -- and people avoiding other common allergens|
Jennifer's Way is an artisanal, organic bakery crafting treats without gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar or peanuts. Went there with my adult sons (one of them is Celiac, too), just when they opened. Heaven, paradise, nirvana ... you can pick your word. Lots of choices, but to me the best was being able to buy a loaf of bread hot-from-the-oven (they had rosemary-thyme with or without yeast). Needless to say, we went back the day we were returning to our homes to get some bread and goodies for the road.
Publisher's Note: Jennifer's Way was founded by actress Jennifer Esposito, shortly after being diagnosed with Celiac disease and other food allergies six years ago. In crafting the mission for her bakery, she wanted to create delicious and nutritious treats that weren't loaded with starch, sugar, preservatives, or genetically engineered ingredients. All items are made in small batches in a dedicated gluten free facilty, so there is no chance of cross contamination. In addition to being gluten free, all items are peanut free. Many items are also dairy free, soy free, corn free, nut free, and paleo. She incorporates healthy protein and fiber-packed flours like millet, quinoa, amaranth, and garbanzo bean flour into many of her recipes, too.
Can't make it to the store in New York City? No worries...Jennifer's Way will ship to your home. You can order the following items on their website: pie crust, cake mixes, cookie mixes, croutons, bagels (they are a top seller), muffin mixes, and granola.
