“I am a professional pastry chef from the Seattle area and I come to the Portland area to visit my mother who lives near one of the New Seasons Markets. I am always anxious to try the many gluten-free goods they carry and I just discovered your breads a few months ago. It is the best I have tried in 7 years of gluten free living. Congratulations.”
-Barbara I. • Seattle, WA
“Chris and Teresa are really onto something here. Not only are they baking things that you’d swear weren’t Gluten-Free, they’re educating everyone that stops by to sample their amazing foods. The nicest people that you’ll ever meet and they also just happen to make Portland’s best cookies too, hands down.”
– Richard L. • Portland, Oregon
“My family and I just returned from a vacation to L.A., so of course we had to find out what all the hype was about for Sprinkles and BabyCakes. We tried them both and while they are both good, I would like you to know that your cupcakes are much better. I also tried a chocolate chip cookie from BabyCakes-no where even close to being as wonderful as yours.”
-Suzy * Astoria, Oregon
“Happiness to me is a turkey sandwich on New Cascadia teff sandwich bread.”
-signed, “A fan”
“I’ve been gluten free for more than a year, and I’ve been enjoying your baked treats for most of that year. However, since going GF I’ve mostly avoided GF bread as none of them measured up to the wonderful whole-grain goodness of my mom’s homemade, whole wheat bread. I preferred going without to accepting second best.
Yesterday I wandered in to New Cascadia Traditional for a treat (your cupcakes are amazing, GF or not!), and on a whim I decided to try a loaf of the teff sandwich bread.
I went home planning to make Thai food for dinner, but after tasting your bread all I wanted was another few slices! Then for lunch today I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich-I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a sandwich more.
I don’t think I could explain to anyone who isn’t gluten intolerant just how wonderful it is to enjoy one of the simple pleasures I’ve missed out on over the last year-a simple slice of flavorful bread.”
“I cannot begin to express my full appreciation for your dedication to your bakery. My family looked forward to pizza night for days. I appreciated being in a warm atmosphere with great food-knowing that my needs are understood, and my health is being nurtured. I hope that you all got through such a busy night with a sense of success-so many customers!”
-Carren * Camas, Washington
