Is tasty artisan bread still possible? (coeliac disease)
This year I became very interested in artisan baking. I started making bread and adored every bit. I hadn't previously eaten much bread as it had made me a little bloated. Recently this got much worse and I saw a doctor. Yesterday I found out I have coeliac disease. I have decided that for my health and for purposes of healthy conception/pregnancy in a couple of years time, I need to follow a strictly 100% gluten free diet. As a vegetarian I've never missed meat and when I stopped buying sliced bread a couple of years ago I never missed that. When I switched to gluten free pasta and all purpose flour several months ago for general health that was fine. The one thing I know I will really miss is my home made bread. I just feel so down about the diagnosis.
My question to you guys is this - can I continue with my love of baking? Can gluten free loaves ever live up to expectations? My first few attempts hav not been great but I have not bought as many specialist flours yet as I would like.
