Hello from non gluten land
I found this site a while ago while searching for gluten free recipes. I have read many reports of people with gluten sensitivities being able to tolerate bread made with European flours and made in the traditional European way. So I went on a search for some of that flour and found some and mail ordered it. I have a couple of starters going and am looking forward to making bread with it in the coming weeks. If this works and I can eat it without any ill effects you may all hear me shouting from wherever you are!
If you have ever had to go without good gluten bread you will understand why I am so hopeful. I use to work in a bakery and also had my own bread business making good hardy European style breads. I had to stop eating it about 2 years ago. In true baker form I set about to make the best gluten free bread and other goodies that I could. I've found some good recipes and developed some of my own but the elusive perfect crumb, alas, cannot be duplicated without some gluten. So here I go again about to try something new. I will be sure to report back here with my results. Oh I do hope this works!
I'm also wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar experience. I would love to hear your story.
