Editor's note: Alissa Malerman's Saturday column showcased some holiday recipes. Part 2 of her column focuses on where to get gluten-free rolls and bread for the Thanksgiving table.
Planning out your Thanksgiving menu? With a little more than a week to go, chances are most people who are cooking holiday meals already have the ball rolling. If special dieters will be at the table, the thought of baking homemade rolls or bread to break with dinner may be a little daunting.
Here are a few places that have your back:
- Celiac Specialties: I know I tout this bakery a lot, but it's really worth every word. Check out the bevy of homemade rolls, bread and baked goods at either the Rochester Hills or Novi locations and have a basket of gluten-free, nut-free goodness at your Thanksgiving feast.
- Sugar Kisses: This Berkley bakery has gluten-free rolls, croutons, bread and a slew of other items for your holiday table. I really enjoy the pumpkin muffins that are available on occasion, as well. The items are clearly marked – and delicious.
- Plum Market: This market can be found in Bloomfield Township and West Bloomfield and has healthy and special-diet friendly food for every occasion. For Thanksgiving, check out the gluten-free baked goods by the Zingerman's vegan bakery case, with plenty of offerings from Rumi's Passion and Udi's Gluten-free rolls and bread. Organic, gluten-free and vegan alternatives to just about everything on your list can be found here.
- Whole Foods: Not only does this special diet-friendly institution have gluten-free breads and rolls in stock, but it also has plenty of good advice and recipes. Check out this advice on entertaining guests with special diets and recipes for gluten-free diners!
