Gluten-Free Bakery Girl is Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten-Free Food Program (GFFP) and endorsed by the National Celiac Association. The program is also endorsed by the Coeliaque Québec and the Canadian Celiac Association.
I started the business, Gluten-Free Bakery Girl, in 2012. My previous experiences working as a pastry chef with the Inn at Perry Cabin, as a sous and pastry chef with a bakery in Scotland and owning a local personal chef business, have all aided me with developing, testing and introducing my original gluten-free recipes.
My inspiration began with creating dedicated gluten-free menus for customers with celiac disease, as well as for myself due to my own gluten intolerance. I know that the only way to address celiac and gluten sensitivities is to eliminate gluten — but we all want cookies, cakes, bars, tarts and breads that taste good.
I built a completely gluten-free kitchen in our store in St. Michaels, Maryland, so that we could have a dedicated baking space. To prevent contamination, no gluten whatsoever passes our threshold and there aren’t any other baking companies in the building.
Every single product my pastry chef and I use is routinely tested to guarantee our state health inspected gluten-free certification. We never use gluten-free mixes—everything sold is prepared completely from scratch. When each order comes in, we personally bake, package, and deliver or ship on demand.
