Shamira Heinz, Heartfire Bakery

Update — it looks like Heartfire Bakery is closed…

Shamira Heinz is a baker, but she hasn’t chosen a easy subject — she is a gluten-free baker!  My one experience making a gluten free pizza was to create something that was closer in texture to playdough, and honestly, from my childhood recollections it might have tasted like that too!

So I am very fascinated by people who have blended the art of bread products with the relatively new science of getting them to behave like their gluten-filled cousins.  Sure, tortillas have been around for a very long time and have always been gluten free, I’m talking about quickbreads and muffins and loaves of crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside breads.  Shamira is one of our local entrepreneurs who has found the sweet spot.  Listen here to the interview.

Heartfire Bakery is located in Arcata!
