Living gluten-free in NYC is becoming just a little bit easier. Lilli and Loo recently launched a gluten-free menu, GourmetLand reintroduced their gluten-free menu and now some of my favorite gluten-free products are available in health food stores in the city.
Le Garden Gourmet Gluten-Free Bakery in upstate New York now has products available at two Manhattan stores:
Food Liberation on Lexington and 89th 212-348-2286
The Health Nuts, Inc. on Second Ave and 64th 212-593-0116
I love their hearty artisanal gluten-free breads and their melba toasts can't be beat.
It was absolutely delicious on its own, but paired wonderfully with my hearty turkey chili recipe.
Kelly at the CeliacChicks, announced last week that gluten-free lasagna, baked ziti and more will be available by delivery from Food Matters. The company is the brainchild of Vanessa Phillips, the woman we also have to thank for the ever-expanding gluten-free menu at Lilli and Loo and now a gluten-free menu at PizzaBolla in downtown Manhattan.
For those of you who live outside NY, don't fret, you can order products from Le Garden GF Bakery, Everybody Eats, and Food Matters. The shipping fees can sometimes be expensive, but trust me it's less than NYC rents.
