I came across three types of Gluten Free pasta today in Denner.
I tried the denner gluten-free pasta. Beware: It is far away from real pasta. You may also want to try rice noodles.

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

I've merged all the threads here with the exception of one dining one which links to here.
Most of the Threads, whether they were originally about dining or about buying gluten free food, had info on both subjects so now it is at least all in just the two places.

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

If anyone wants a gluten free recipe, let me know by sending a private message. One request at a time would be sustainable.

My lovely employer is gluten free, vegan and leaning heavily towards and beyond...macrobiotic tendancies. I make everything from scratch using whole foods and have been collecting recipes for about 8 solid months. I've been in Switzlerland a week and have shopped and dropped in just a few places and found everything I need.

Tapioca Starch (flour)

Does anybody have a good source for tapioca starch (flour)? Online or a shop? I have found some at Mueller Reformhaus but it comes in small quantities and is expensive. We ran out of our stash from the States and won't be able to refill that supply for a couple of months.

On a related note, I have attempted to grind some tapioca pearls using a coffee grinder but can not get the powder fine enough. Can anybody recommend a decent grinder for such purposes?

Thanks.

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

You should be able to get tapioca starch at an asian grocery. If you are in Zurich any time soon, there is the 'Asia Store' which is underneath the Zurich main station, but in a separate tunnel to the rest of the shopping area...it can be tricky to find it...let me know if you need more instructions...

A quick internet search yields this one in Zofingen - is that near to you?

http://www.asian-grocery.ch/

My experience is that gluten-free pasta is never like 'real' pasta...

My son has been eating gluten free since he was 5 (coeliac, diagnosed by biopsy)...so he's long forgotten what 'real' bread and pasta taste like, and quite adapted to his gluten-free versions...

I've been eating GF bread, pasta etc for about 5 years and thought I'd forgotten what 'real' food tasted like, until I bit into a wheat flour cookie 3 weeks ago. I remembered pretty quickly that GF cookies don't taste 'that' good... and paid for it with a headache for about a week. My digestion is only starting to come back to normal.

Fresh GF pasta is awesome (schaer make a good flour for it) but it is time consuming to make

The only place I've found tapioca flour (along with rice, maize, millet etc) is at my local health food store. It's not cheap but I'm willing to pay the difference for good tasting pancakes!

I'm sure listening to Mahler with a cochlea implant isn't as good as the real thing, but we do what we have to, eh?

I can't remember what 'real' pasta tastes like, so I'm perfectly happy - unless some miserable bugger decides to remind me what I'm missing...

There's a shop down the road a way from us which sells grain grinders; I don't own one but reckon they'd work equally well on tapioca.

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

I have a 'flaker' somewhere - for turning seeds into flakes (eg. oats for porridge)...

I guess I should invest in a pasta maker and invite all you GF wonderful people over for fresh pasta some time..

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

I don't know German, but I do know the word for Gluten Free in most languages!

If I'm not mistaken, this says that a cupcake store in Zurich is selling Gluten Free cupcakes

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cupca...24964300875827

Can someone go and try one and tell me if it's worth the 2 1/2 hour train ride?

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

Hello all fellow Coeliacs!

Just wondering if any of you have come across a good Gluten Free Bread Mix which can be made in a bread maker, or a good flour which can be used instead. I have recently used my last packet of Juvela GF Fibre mix which I used to get on prescription in the UK and having tried a few mixes can't find anything to compare. Any suggestions or ideas gratefully received.

Many thanks

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

Guys, I have a dear friend with celiac disease and I am always on the lookout for gluten-free recipes, so I came across this one for gluten-free pumpkin scones (scroll to the bottom part of the page, after the whole-wheat recipe) and thought about sharing it on the forum in case someone wants to try it.
I will hopefully give it a shot in the near future

Kaufland, over the border in German, sells Seitz gluten-free bread flour for granary-style bread.



I've no idea whether it works in a bread machine but it's okay made in a manual way. It's got a bit too much salt in it though.

They also sell other GF flours.

Thanks Tom - tried this one in the bread maker and it came out the size and consistency of a house brick!! Perhaps I'll give it another try making it the good old fashioned way!

So it wasn't just us.

We're going to try it again with fresh yeast rather than dried and see if that makes any difference.

Somebody did day "German-Style", didn't they? Anyway, if you go to Kaufland anyway, stop by at dm markt, they have a very extensive gluten free range.

Re: Gluten free food - where can I buy it? shops+restaurants

The Coop in Zürich Shilcity has one of the greatest varieties of glutenfree food - from bread to pasta/pizza, lasagna, beer, Kaisersemmel (very good!!) and even ice-cream wafers. They have also a mailingslist where they announce new products. A good place to eat glutenfree chocolate cake is of course the Hiltl in Zürich.

Where to find gluten-free baking powder in Zürich

Does anybody know where I can buy gluten-free baking powder in Zürich please?

I've tried my local Reformhaus and another health food shop in the the centre of Zürich to no avail.

Thanks
