The Oxford Spa in Cambridge no longer offers their unbelievably good gluten free bread.
I don't think I've ever talked about them on this blog (I really should have) but Ellen at I am Gluten Free has, and I've discussed it many-a-time on the Gluten Free Forum.
I am really shocked. Every time I went there (and it wasn't easy, it generally took me almost an hour and a half to go there & back home) I asked the people working if I could either:
a) buy an entire loaf
b) get the recipe
c) contact the woman who made the bread
d) offer large quantities of money for a, b or c
I never got any of those things. The only thing I found out was it was a woman (genius-gf-baker) who had a full time job as a chef at a private school, and made this bread (and other GF goodies like cookies & brownies) in her spare time. I believe her daughter has celiac which is why she did this.
So, Oxford Spa has come under new management, and no longer have ties with this illustrious woman.
I spoke on the phone with someone there & they said they were looking for a new vendor.
It will be nearly impossible to top the other bread though. I'm not kidding -- those of you who went know what I'm talking about.
I hope this mystery baker starts her own gluten free baking company.
