Ms. Michelle’s Urban Gourmet is a dedicated Gluten Free Bakery Cafe on the south shore of Long Island. They also distribute their products to local health food stores and restaurants. Their displays and menu boards change frequently with the seasons, however, they will always have their signature muffins and customer favorites.
After graduating from Culinary School, Michelle was persuaded to enter the teaching profession. While an educator she realized her love for food has never dwindled. So, she started teaching culinary classes at the Ross School summer program in Bridgehampton. While working there she realized how many individuals could not eat a simple muffin or cupcake due to allergies or illness. This truly broke her heart. It was then she realized that she wanted to develop a product which tasted good and everyone could eat no matter what dietary or illness restrictions they may have. It took four (4) years of trial and error, but she came up with their Gluten Free muffin recipe.
While selling their products at local farmer’s markets, their following grew to the point where they needed to expand to a new establishment. Their charming building was originally built around 1820 and operated as a Bed and Breakfast.
“We at Ms. Michelle’s feel Gluten Free should not be limited by what you can find in the frozen food section. Everything at Ms. Michelle’s is baked and prepared daily to ensure freshness in all products. We pride ourselves that a person can buy something still warm from the oven. - We make Gluten Free taste GOOD!” - Michelle Gillette, Owner / Chef of Ms. Michelle’s Urban Gourmet
Ms. Michelle’s baked products can be shipped anywhere in the United States.
