|Not too shabby, eh?|
My main reason for the trip was to sample all (and I mean ALL) of the savory treats from gluten-free Krumville Bake Shop. Galettes, tarts, focaccia - gluten-free things that are hard to do well AND hard to find.
|Carby, cheesy goodness|
Krumville also has a wide selection of sweets, but I took a pass that day in order to focus on the carbs and cheese!
This right here, their potato galette, is really the item I schlepped to Williamsburg for. I'd heard from other GF friends that it was spectacular - they weren't exaggerating.
Having been blown away by my first savory treat, I couldn't resist trying the zucchini cheese tart I'd purchased for "tomorrow" (HAH). Again, amazing texture and flavor - polished that baby right off.
I spent the rest of the day out and about and, many hours later, found myself with great friends and nothing to eat. Not wanting to leave the party, I tucked into the focaccia, hoping a few bites would tide me over. But (sigh) ate the whole damn thing. Didn't offer anyone a bite this time. It was amazing. Truly. Best focaccia I've ever had, gluten-free or not. Buy it.
While, as of now at least, you can only get the galettes and savory tarts at Smorg, you can purchase the rest of Antonella's wares - including that amazing focaccia - at various NYC sites, on her website, and via Good Eggs.
For all my talk of Krumville, there were other gluten-free vendors at the Smorg! Among them, one of my other favorites, Danny Macaroons. Last I checked, only the Black Chocolate Stout flavor contains gluten.
I'm not familiar with Kerala Soul Cuisine, but looks like all their items are gluten-free.
Did I miss anyone? Definitely not these guys, though I appreciate them saving me from asking my usual "Do you have any gluten-free options?" (read bottom of sign :)
I do hear that the wonderful CakeBites will be back at the Smorg this weekend. They make wonderful, addicting vegan, gluten-free chocolate covered cake truffles that you MUST try if you're there!
Smorgasburg has two locations: Williamsburg on Saturdays, and DUMBO on Sundays, through November 24th. Vendor lists for the coming weekend are posted every Friday.
