Interesting Tidbits

Erin McKenna of Babycakes bakery was on the Martha Stewart show yesterday and shared two of her gluten-free recipes.

I received this hot tip in an email from Dr. Doug Hertford:

"Blue Smoke has fantastic food and a separate dedicated GLUTEN FREE MENU. The portions of ribs are huge and a tremendous bang for the buck. No need to take my word for it; RUN there and check it out ASAP. The massive succulent ribs speak and taste for themselves.

There is also a great jazz club below the main room with the same spectacular food.

I have met the co-owner, Ken Callaghan, who is in partnership with Danny Meyer - the renowned NYC restaurateur. Ken is very nice and congenial; he is usually there on weekdays. His travels throughout the USA in search of the perfect rib have been documented in magazine articles.

I will speak to Ken and encourage him to join the Gluten Free Restaurant Awareness Program. (GFRAP) Not that Blue Smoke really needs more business - this is the one downside - it is usually packed and hard to get last minute reservations, so it's best to go at off times. "

Wow! We haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but thought you might like to know. Sounds like Dr. Hertford is a serious rib connoiseur! Thanks Dr. Hertford!

Having trouble finding the new Redbridge gluten-free beer? You can search here by zip code.

The Gluten-free Bread Basket Cafe permanently closed December 30th, 2006. We'll miss this great contributor to the gf bakery scene. We'd like to thank them for all the good times and sweet treats! If you'd like to share your sentiments with them you can send an email to

Oh, hallelujiah for the cinnamon toasties recipe! I went to Babycakes on my trip to NYC last month and fell in love with the cinnamon toasties!

I'm so happy to see Babycakes getting such mainstream recognition. (I'm not sure I'd want to be on Martha Stewart, though. Brave women!)

I loved how Erin was a little snarky with Martha - it was classic.

Oooh! really?! I wish I could have seen that!
