Part Two of the Gluten Free Bread Review

You see, it’s so cool, it evens rhymes! Many of you will remember my last bread review post where DS Wholesome was crowned the winner of all UK branded loaves.

This time it’s gonna be aaalllwhite! That means no seeds, no whole, no meal, just plain old white bread. Why white bread? What’s the big difference, I hear you cry.

Yes folks, you read it right. I have discovered a bread to rival the gluten free god that is genius. ….

….So as you facebook followers know, I decided to pop over to the gluten free and allergy show this weekend.  I’d planned to take a thousand pictures, including the one I’d imagined in detail,  of me grinning from ear to ear, firmly shaking the magic hands of Lucinda-Bruce Gardyne, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be. The venue was pretty small and there weren’t any new, gluten free products that I hadn’t already tried or already heard of, that is until I got chatting to Mats from Garbo and discovered a new bread that may just have the ‘genuises’ shaking in their boots.
