Elizabeth D Bakes is a company specialising in gluten free baked goods. Started by Elizabeth, a few years ago, the company has grown from market stalls to supplying to Whole Foods Market.
What’s different about Elizabeth D Bakes is their founder does not have any allergies or intolerances. So why would someone with no personal need start a free from business? This is exactly what I ask Elizabeth.
Elizabeth takes me through her journey learning about allergies from developing recipes free from gluten, what, eggs and dairy to start, as well as cross-contamination, and how to bake safely for allergies and coeliac disease. She tells me stories of her customers and how they shaped the development of Elizabeth D Bakes.
Other questions I ask:
- How do you source ingredients?
- What have you learned about allergies and free from?
- When and why did you decide to have a dedicated gluten free kitchen?
- What was your first baking fail?
- What has been a baking success?
