No, this isn’t a whimsical bushwalking holiday filled with energy bars and songs around the campfire. This is the real deal – a genuine tree-change down south to spread the gluten free word beyond the city walls.
(Okay it is actually a lifestyle move – but I am determined to lobby my local supermarkets to stock some of the city-slicker gluten-free products I have come to rely on).
Of course my co-blogger Mandy will remain within the bright lights to bring word of all the cutting edge stuff in the urban supermarket scene. But for me the jig is up. I must either make my own bread or find a local supplier who offers a soy-free loaf minus all the preservatives (that turn our cheeks red and make us scream) that is also decent sandwich fodder for lunchboxes.
Yes, I have spent sleepless nights mulling this all over – and I have decided to make a general appeal to any of our readers in a similar situation.
Anyone who lives in a rural town of less than 10,000 inhabitants is probably in a similar situation. Our local supermarket sells a popular gluten-free loaf –but owing to its increasingly liberal use of preservatives, we need to go further afield. I figure I have three main options. Find a decent packet mix and bake regularly; order my favourite loaves online in bulk (and buy a deep freeze!?); or is there some other way?
I’d love to hear any other suggestions from the trenches from anyone in a similar situation…
