Gluten Free — it’s a term you hear often, many of your friends are giving the gluten free diet a go to see if it will help with any number of health problems, and why not when you have the luscious treats that Rosa and Milia are cooking up for you at Natural Decadence. They brought Jess and I some “buttery tasting” (but no butter, they are vegan AND gluten free) shortbread cookies with lavender, yum! They also brought their story of how they got started baking up gluten free treats and how they got picked up by Whole Foods. Local ladies are making it big, and it all started here in Humboldt.
Reah Roberts, owner of Arise Bakery, makes gluten-free baked goods and is working to establish a CSB…that would be a Community Supported Bakery. Members join and every week receive an assortment of the various items she is making. Reah also sells her tasty gluten-free items at the Saturday Farmers Market in Arcata.
