the basic recipe is 200 gr white flour, 2 whole eggs, 1 egg yolk and 1/s tsp salt. this gives you about 300gr of pasta (you can scale it up to requirement). the exact quantities depends of the type of flour, the size of the eggs, humidity in the kitchen yap yap yap.... start with the basic and then adjust...

if you have kneaded before, the process is the same, otherwise you can chek out this link, you'll have to forgive the naff music

Don't bother with resting the dough before rolling it, from experience it makes no difference

don't roll it by hand, get yourself a machine (about 30fr in Migros). Rolling by hand (unless you know what you are doing and practice long and hard) is difficult because you are likely to end up with thicker and thinner spots that make the cooking time inconsistent and you'll end up with undercooked and overcooked pasta in the same plate

you don't need to dry pasta before cooking it, but you need to dry it if you want to store (once it's dry it'll curl up, bit like the corners of an old sandwich, you can gthen freeze for a month or so, chuck it in the boiling water straight from frozen)
Thanks! It sounds like something I can accomplish and much cheaper than a trip to Italy every week! I'll buy a machine this afternoon.

Don't you have to use a particular strength of flour etc?
Ideally, yes, but as you have a gluten allergy I think you'll be stuck for choice and you'll have to take whatever is on offer. try to stick to GF white flour, making pasta with wholemeal flour is a bit of an ordeal for beginners...

Gluten free products in Basel

Hi. I just moved to Basel last week with my husband and two daughters. One of my daughters is celiac and I've now been to at least 6 grocery stores in search of gluten free items. I've been able to find several products at different Coops, but they all seem to carry different things. What I'm most interested in finding are: gluten free flours such as rice flour, cornstarch, bean flours etc. (rather than a pre-mixed version), sandwich bread, cereal (not granola) and pizza dough. Could someone tell me if there is a particular store that has more of these items than others? Also, I do not know any german as of yet and am finding label reading difficult, so if anyone has various snack items, sauces, etc. to recommend that are gluten free, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you - Sarah

Re: Gluten free products in Basel

It's a long time since I last went, but I think Marktkauf, just over the border, had a big shelf full of gluten free products.

There is also a heath food shop just off of Marktplatz in Basel. I would expect them to have gluten free stuff.

Re: Gluten free products in Basel

These are gluten-free and probably count as snacks.

Re: Gluten free products in Basel

Do you live near Arlesheim (number 10 tram)? The volg in Arlesheim has a wide range of gluten free ... as well as a wide range of spelt products - although not sure if you can have spelt products as a cealiac ...

Alas, not.

But shops that sell spelt (Dinkel) usually stock gluten free products as well, so it's probably still useful information.

Re: Gluten free food

I recently joined the Schaer website and found it extremely helpful. It has a large library of GF recipes (using schaer ingredients).

I made a loaf of the traditional loaf last night and it come out beautifully. Lovely crunchy crust and a chewy soft inside. Absolutely delicious with a bowl of minestrone!

Gluten Free in Geneva

Hi All,

I'm sure many people have already asked about this, but I couldn't seem to find anything about being gluten free in Geneva.

I'm a celiac student from Canada moving to Geneva in July, and am wondering about any restaurants with gluten free foods, or where to buy good gluten free products.

Thanks so much for your help!
-Jilly

Re: Gluten Free in Geneva

I don't know about restaurants, but you can find some gluten free stuff in organic shops. At least in the two shops that are in St-Julien-En-Genevois.
I think, but I'm less sure that you can find some stuff in Coop/Migros or also in those kind of Shops on the french area.

Welcome soon

Re: Gluten Free in Geneva

Here's a good thread here on it.

The larger Co-op supermarkets (everywhere in Switzerland) have really increased their range of GF foods, especially the Schär range.

I`m sure someone on here will know of GF restaurants around Geneva.

Re: Fresh gluten free pasta [where to buy?]

I came across three types of Gluten Free pasta today in Denner.

Thought those of you who need GF pasta might be interested. Photos below.
