I had previously found one gluten free bread (Genius) that I could eat without having to toast. Unfortunately that bread is made in England and I live in New Zealand. But at least I got to try it and I have my memories of that delicious sandwich.
Then Haitch and I went to Adelaide for a long weekend. Adelaide has a beautiful market full of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and all sorts of other glorious fresh produce. What a wonderful place just to wander around and fill in a day. As we were meandering and enjoying all the sights and smells, we came across enzos.
A reader had recommended we try enzo’s while we were visiting Adelaide so I approached the counter with a certain amount of expectation. Ahhh, one look at the food and I could see I wasn’t going to be disappointed. Gluten free heaven! Lots and lots of freshly baked gluten free goodies. I managed to get a seat at one of their little tables and I sat down and sampled lots of goodies. Delicious! I wanted to stay there all day and keep eating. I knew once I had left enzo’s it would be a long time before I found a gluten free bakery as good as this. Wagfree in Brixton markets, London would be the last time I had the pleasure of eating at a place like this.
And then there was the bread. enzo’s bread is beautiful. Soft, springy and delicious. I don’t think I remember what real bread tastes like but I know the smell. Haitch tortures me with it all the time. enzo’s bread tasted just the way real bread smells. And I could eat it fresh and have a proper sandwich. I would almost go so far as to say it was better than Genius bread. Yes, I will be so bold and say it is better than Genius gluten free bread.
I bought a loaf of enzo’s bread and wandered around the market to select the perfect cheese so I could have fresh bread and cheese in my hotel room. If you are not gluten free, you will have no idea how special that is!
