Well, it seems Murray heard this AG about getting down with some vegan goodies [including wheat-free] but the sound waves must have gotten muddled because he didn’t quite get it-replacing wheat flour is just the beginning.
Here’s an update from the street via Ms. Scones: “So I was at City Bakery today buying some overpriced fruit salad, and I saw that they have these new "wheat-free" apple miso muffins. Interesting development, but it doesn't do that much good for celiacs if they're not gluten free. I asked if they were GF in addition to being WF, and the clerk was entirely baffled. I asked if there might be oats in it, and she didn't know.”
C’mon Murray, what’s the point of bothering to make a wheat-free muffin and not training your staff? It’s not like wheat-free is the new “low-carb diet”. Wheat is one of the FDA’s 8 major allergens. For celiacs, all gluten needs to be avoided. For gluten-sensitive folks like me, I don’t need the tummy issues for a couple of days, thank you very much.
Poor effort on City bakery’s part. And over-priced? They’ll have to do better to get my business.
