Who are you and what do you do?
Nuflours, formerly d:floured, was created in 2011 out of the want for delicious baked goods to share with family and friends, regardless of dietary restrictions. Owners and gluten-free themselves, Amanda & Phebe strive to make all their products enjoyable for the gluten free and gluten-full eater. They currently bake out of a commercial kitchen in Lower Queen Anne and serve the greater Seattle area with nutritious yet delicious cookies, cakes, pastries and breads using locally sourced, organic and naturally gluten free ingredients.
Any new exciting news you’d like to share with our readers?
We’ve found a home! We’re excited to share with you the location of our first brick & mortar! In early December, we will start renovations on historic bakery space located at 518 15th Ave East in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The site has housed a bakery since it was built in 1936.
The family that owns the building ran the bakery for the majority of its history, with North Hill Bakery being the previous tenant of 13 years. Our build out will consist of two phases, Phase 1 we will make the space gluten-free. That’s a process that requires a lot of scrubbing. After that, we’ll make improvements to the space. We need to build some walls, make some cosmetic changes and install kitchen equipment.
Phase 2 we will design our storefront, add seating and ask our customers to spend part of their day with us! We hope to open to the public in the spring of 2014.
What’s your favorite item that you sell?
We love all things chocolate during the holidays, so brownies top our list! We will have dark chocolate & peppermint brownies at the show this year. We’re suckers for ginger this time of year! Triple ginger cookies, fat gingerbread men (and ladies) and gingersnaps are our seasonal favorites.
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had with one of your customers?
We see the biggest smiles around! We often get the question, “what do you have that is gluten free?” Our answer is always the same, “Everything! Everything here is gluten free.” As fast as the words can come out of our mouth, the customer’s eyes brighten up with a huge grin as they peruse through our selection. Then, they walk away with a treat and a warm, happy heart. These encounters and other stories of how our work helps people, makes us so happy every day!
