On August 10 & 11, 2019 one my my favourite bakeries finally opened its doors and invited Prince Edward County to try their delicious treats at their pop-up shoppe.

Going back to about 2015/2016 was when I first discovered Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and officially became a part of “Kelly’s Tribe.”

Kelly Childs and Erin Weatherbee are the co-owners and also super fantastic mother-daughter duo who run the Kelly’s ship! These women are idols to me, and I love their determination and commitment to their customers. I actually reached out to both before hand to introduce myself, I was really hoping to meet them face to face to really thank them for all they are doing.

Located at 13633 Loyalist Parkway in Picton, ON its just a short drive for me from Kingston, and perfectly situation for all those great beach days in the Summer. I bought something of everything there- including a Nanimo Ice cream in which we are savouring and will keep it in the freezer until the day comes that we eat it.

So what is so great about Kelly’s In The County? Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Vegan, and Egg Free (just to name a few). They use natural colouring (Hello Beets!!) and never put any added junk in their products. I saw a post on instagram of someone who brought their daughter who has never been able to eat from a bakery due to her anaphylactic allergies and all I can think is that this is what it’s all about. These women are literally changing lives of so many people! You are absolutely safe to eat here as it is 100% gluten free! Completely Celiac Safe.

We have to wait until next year for the official opening but I want to thank Kelly and Erin for coming this way and giving us a taste of what is to come. I am very excited and cannot express enough gratitude for them and all they are doing for the Celiac Community.

Il Fornello Ajax- Vegan Menu Review

Il Fornello Ajax- Vegan Menu Review

If you haven’t read my last review please CLICK HERE as I did a partial review at the beginning of the summer.

I went to Il Fornello in Ajax on Friday with my friend Laura. She is definitely the best person to bring along as she has been Vegan for a while now and I literally drool when seeing her Instagram posts. 

So Il Fornello has quite a decent selection of Gluten Free, Vegan menu items. All specifically curated by Margie Cook, Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) and a Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach and Educator (VLCE), this menu really delivers. 

We started our meal off with some delicious warm olives. Olives are something I recently started acquiring a taste for as I often struggle with being Sodium Deficient. Because my diet is generally very clean, and I never add salt to my food outside of a recipe, I often struggle with enough salt intake. So Olives are the perfect thing and these are great. They were warmed, super garlicky, and full of flavour. Great appetizer for sharing over a glass of wine.

I was hoping to try the Gluten Free Arncaini  as I saw the menu was posted online, but the Ajax location did not have them listed on the Vegan Menu and the server advised they were fried in the shared fryer. They sound delicious though! Totally would have gone for those as an appetizer.

For the Mains we got the Spaghetti Bolognese  with Gluten Free Rotini. They use “Beyond Meat” Balognese, with their own homemade tomato sauce. It was really delicious, and me who isn’t a vegan even liked the pasta dish. Speaking texturally, if you didn’t tell me it was a Vegan sauce I would have no clue otherwise. It doesn’t have the same greasy flavour that beef does. For me though, currently trying to eat relatively clean where I can, it was a really great alternative. I would certainly order it again as it was hearty, and reminded me just like a normal Balognese pasta dish.

And of course, pizza. My one true love. The Asparagus E Mozzarella Pizza was fantastic. I’m not sure if there is a gluten free dough and a gluten gree vegan dough, or if they are one in the same. But this dough was a bit sweeter which I enjoyed. It held together very well and did not crumble. The vegan cheese was melty and stringy and had great flavour. The asparagus was cooked perfectly and added a bit of crunch on top of the most delicious sautéed onions ever. It was a pizza match made in heaven. 

I rate this menu very high on the list. As always, Il Fornello has wonderful Cross Contamination processes for keeping it Celiac Safe. Always call ahead, always do your own questioning and remember to make your own choices. My review is my experience only my options. ​​
