December 24, 2012 Host Kathleen Marshall Speaks With Reah Roberts, Owner of Arise Bakery, About All Things Gluten-Free

Reah Roberts of Arise BakeryPeople go gluten-free for a variety of reasons.  Those with celiac disease can suffer serious health consequences from ingesting even a molecule of gluten.  Others have a gluten-intolerance that results in a cascade of inflammatory symptoms if they eat gluten-laden food.  And still others go gluten-free even if they don’t have to.

Reah Roberts, owner of Arise Bakery in Arcata, is an inspired and talented baker of gluten free-baked goods.  From cookies to quiche, she uses as many organic, locally sourced ingredients as she can.
