i've been buying sticklings rice bread lately, from a health food store on bloor, west of spadina, it's right across from kinkos. i forget what the store is called.
it's not amazing bread, but it's decent and pretty convenient to get. it tastes ok toasted, as usual. i even eat it just with butter.
it also has no dairy in it.

my mother in law tried to serve me curry again that had flour in it.

i was a bad girl recently and shared a fondue with bread eaters. i've been suffering for two days. i won't be doing that again.

chocolate chips are my salvation!!!

Chippy's

Chippy's has recently opened a second location at 490 Bloor West (at Brunswick, 416-516-7776). The other location is 893 Queen West, at Gore Vale, (416-866-7474).

The staff at the Bloor street location told me that they have a dedicated deep fryer for french fries. All breaded stuff is fried in a separate fryer. They also told me that the fries are fresh cut potatoes with nothing added. So, they seem to be gluten-free.

Here's a review.

Axcess Restaurant

I removed the Axcess Restaurant from the Gluten-Free Toronto site. Wendy told me that it was closed (thanks for letting me know). I checked it out, and she is right.
National Post Article

There's a good article on the back page of section one of the National Post today:

"This Bread is More scary than it Looks," National Post, Tuesday, March 15, 2005, page A20. By Rosie Schwartz.

The Online version has a different title. I am not sure how long the link will be valid.

My wife and I stopped in at the El Peto factory outlet in Cambridge on Saturday. Well worth the 5 minute detour off 401. I picked up several loaves of bread, both of which are terrific. One is a GF whole grains while the other is a flax seed bread. I like these even better than the Kinnikinnick whole grains, they have a much firmer and denser texture.
