Hello Celiadictos, Good-Bye Gluten Addiction

Thanks to the wonderful world of Instagram, we have been able to find some new and exciting bakeries around the greater Barcelona area that we might not have noticed before.  This place called Celiadictos kept posting some amazing photos of crusty loaves of bread, the kind that will help anybody get over their gluten addiction. …

Good Eats at Gula Sana

Besides being a GF food explorer, I am a full time primary school teacher and find it really hard to write about the places I try in a timely manner. I do apologize! And this is the fate of this, my post about a place called Gula Sana that we taste tested in 2017. Located…

Fresh, Bright Gluten Free Orange Cake

So, I have been really in to trying out this baking in a cast iron dutch oven thing lately.  It has been a long time since I felt completely able to bake delicious desserts, and even though I am limited to what I can do with my equipment, the future is bright.  It was my coworker’s…

Dark Chocolate Torte, Without an Oven

As home renters, it is hard to find a place that has 100% of everything you are looking for.  That apartment with all of the classic Barcelona decorative elements you just signed a contract for is probably riddled with evil spooks and spiders. But these things don’t deter us!  Our current home has about 99%…

Jansana’s Delightful Pastries

A year and a half ago, we moved outside the city limits to a small town near Montserrat. Its about a 40 minute drive into Barcelona, so needless to say, we don’t get out to explore the latest and greatest GF options on a weekly basis.  We do however, try to visit places when we…

A 100% Gluten-Free Italian Joint

As most people with a food allergy know, eating out at a restaurant can be difficult, especially when you are with people who are not afflicted by any sort of food related issue. They grimace when its your turn to order, because they know you will ask 25 questions about the ingredients in the starters menu…

Local Mecca for Gluten-Free Baked Treats

At last! Another dedicated gluten-free bakery to add to this blog! It feels like its been ages since a discovery like this has happened to us here at Gluten Free BCN. So far, most places have been quite a hike to get to, and with varied amounts of satisfaction for our wallets and tastebuds. Now…

Completely Satisfactory: Copasetic

Eating gluten-free* for a good price close to home can be difficult depending on which Barcelona neighborhood you live in.  It was very exciting when I found a delicious, high-quality little bistro just a few blocks away that makes unique dishes I can actually eat.  I had read about Copasetic on other websites, and it…

UPDATED – Baci d’Angelo – Patisserie in Clot

Located in the Clot neighborhood, just 2 blocks from the Metro station that bears the same name, is an interesting little cafe called Baci d’ Angelo. Open for a little over a year now, this family run business is starting to make a name for itself among the Coeliac community. As owner Filippo described, they did not…

UPDATED-SYNGLUTEN, Baked Goods to Take Away

As you may have noticed by the lack of information about gluten-free bakeries in Barcelona, well, it’s because they are hard to come by.  In my recent searching, I did, however, come across a little place in the Sants neighborhood that looked very promising.  Its website boasted that they make the best fresh-baked bread in…

Spice Cafe: I Want Cake!

Many years ago, during my time as a food service technician, a phrase was said to me that I have since uploaded into my permanent usage file.  I came home from work bearing a huge slice of multi-layered Red Velvet cake on an open plate.  Sitting in the living room were some friends of my…

Reykjavic Bakery – Glutie But Goodie

For my birthday,  my coworker brought me a delicious slice of gluten-free cake.  It was made mostly from poppy seeds and had the most interesting, slightly crunchy, uber-moist texture.  Even though drizzled with a basic sugar icing, the cake was the perfect amount of sweet, not over the top.  It tasted natural and healthy.  Of…

UPDATE: A Bakery Just For Us!?!?

As many of you have probably noticed, Barcelona is not overflowing with restaurants that cater specifically to the GF Movement.   Sure the grocery stores have a nice selection of processed GF products, but what people really want is food with a homemade feel.  I was really excited when I stumbled across a 100% gluten-free…
