Local Business Spotlight: Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery May 26 2016
Today we're introducing you to Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery! Lemonade is proud to be a locally owned 100% gluten free bake shop serving up top quality freshly baked gifts ready for giving! You'll find this award winning bakery in the heart of Vancouver in Cambie Village, between 17th Ave and 18th Ave.
Lemonade believes that gluten free can be delicious: you can have your cake and eat it too! And bread, pastries, and cookies... we know we're a gift service but we won't blame you if you send a little gluten-free gift to yourself.
Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery is the brainchild of Tracy Kadonoff, an award winning pastry chef who studied at the Baking and Pastry Arts program in Vancouver, the prestigious Ecole Lenore in Paris, and the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley -- she knows how to pick 'em, eh?
After nearly twenty years working with gluten-based flours, Tracy developed a gluten intolerance and could no longer eat or work around gluten. We bet that came as quite the shock! She sought out alternative breads and pastries to suit her new diet and was extremely disappointed with the options she found.
She began experimenting with her own "gluten free baking lab" was born! Not long after, friends, family and neighbours starting begging for Tracy's unusually delicious goods, and the idea for Lemonade began to take shape. The bakery opened its doors in 2012 and has been serving up sinfully good gluten-free treats ever since. And they were one of the first to jump aboard with us when we launched Vancouver gift delivery this spring!
We got to thinking: how did Tracy how she chose the name of her bakery? Her response: "A pastry chef with a gluten allergy? When life hands you lemons..."
