Gluten Free Sourdough Bread at the Hollywood Farmer's Market


I had heard the rumors. Some may even call it urban legend. For someone who tries to live a gluten-free life, the though seems to be of fairytale. Could good, crusty, sourdough bread ever really be gluten free?

Well, according to Jack Bezian, yes. I had seen the YouTube video he made, and even read the article in Whole Living. But I was still very cautious. My tummy is oh-so-sensitive, and bread can take me from skinny jeans to fat pants in the blink of an eye.

On a random Sunday, The Fiancé and I made a rare trip east of the 405 (kidding, kind of...) to visit the Hollywood Farmer's Market. I can sniff out a good sourdough anywhere, so it didn't take long for me to find Bezian Bakery.



And the man himself:


I didn't want to be a pain and Mr. Bezian was extremely busy, so we chatted only briefly, and I took off running to get home and break into his delicious bread.

A bit different than the airy sourdough I used to know and love, the Bezian Bakery sourdough is dense and very sour. And oh, so delicious. You can buy both mini loaves and full-size loaves, both sliced and whole.

So, how did I do eating this deliciousness? Perfect. No tummy bloat or pain in sight. Now, it should be noted that I do not have Celiac's Disease, but do have allergies to many grains including wheat. I wouldn't eat this everyday as I don't like pushing my limits, but once and a while, for a special treat, this makes an amazing snack.

To find the Bezian Bakery yourself, check out the Santa Monica Farmer's Market on Arizona Ave. (between 2nd & Ocean) on Wednesday's from 8:30am - 1:30pm, the Pasadena Farmer's Market at Victory Park on Saturday's from 8:30am-1pm and the Hollywood Farmer's Market on Ivar and Selma on Sunday's from 8am-1pm.

I can't wait to come up with some new recipes for the bread I have left!
