“When a gluten intolerant anthropologist starts thinking about bread, she approaches it differently to a baker. She researches all the seeds and weeds, roots and pseudo grains used to make breads in other cultures and then she experiments…..endlessly! The result? Traditional old world breads from exotic new world grains.”
“We bake delicious, traditional textured, wholegrain, gluten and wheat free breads and rolls in a dedicated gluten free environment. Made from a blend of exotic whole pseudo grains, weed seeds and roots, the chewy crust and soft middle is indistinguishable from regular bread. These breads regularly win awards competing against ‘Wheaten Breads’ in Open Categories at the Perth Royal Show.”
Why have I not blogged about this yet? Strange Grains are the absolute best thing to happen to coeliac disease sufferers in Perth since, well… sliced bread. Originally based in Leederville, Strange Grains have been making some of the tastiest bread for a fair while now. Even supplying some of the big restaurants in Perth who use their bread as their standard menu option it’s that good. After an amazingly honest, down to earth appearance on Shark Tank Strange Grains was placed firmly on the map and exposure to the public rocketed and eventually owner Jenny was able to move her business to their new location in Shenton Park. The new location is bigger which means increase in production and they also have a visable shop front open to the public which is great. They now do a roaring lunch trade selling their famous bread, pies, rolls, pizza bases, sausage rolls and some amazing and cheap sweets. But be warned, they are in high demand and often sell out.
Back to the bread. It is so good. They have a big range to chose from including their award-winning sourdough, multigrain and my personal fav, their fruit toast. You can check their full range on their website which I have linked to below. It is not cheap, but god damn it’s totally worth it.
What: Strange Grains Gluten Free Bakery
