Some people think Céline Citron never smiles. Well, let’s just say that she’s not easily satisfied. As long as things aren’t quite perfect, and as long as her cookies don’t have exactly the taste she wants them to have, she is way too concentrated to smile. But late at night, when everyone’s fast asleep, and she’s still adding the finishing touches to her cookies, she takes a little bite. And then her eyes begin to twinkle, and the entire room lights up with the most beautiful of smiles.

Our bakery offers a range of organic gluten-free biscuits handbaked in small batches in Brussels. Our mission is to make cookies that taste fabulous using gluten-free ingredients. That way our products will appeal to everyone, including people who don’t have allergies or intolerances.
Our ingredients are organic and most of them come from local quality producers. No wheat, soy, corn or food additives (the famous « E » ‘s on food labels) are being used but alternatives such as buckwheat, tapioca or potato flour.
Our workshop is located in Brussels, at the crossing of the canal and the Senne river, where we create little indulgences full of taste in the true Belgian tradition.
We hear more and more people talking about “gluten-free”. But what exactly is gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in all bread flours such as wheat, rye, barley, kamut, etc.. Gluten is a fundamental element in bakery. It gives elasticity and suppleness to pasta, allows breads to acquire volume and softness.
But gluten can also slow the absorption of nutrients, including iron, calcium and vitamins. For those intolerant or allergic or suffering of the celiac disease, it can even result in very significant health problems, such as destruction of the intestinal wall.
All of our products are certified gluten-free.
