Canada’s Favourite Spa Provides Guests with a Gluten and Dairy Free Array of Products
Ste. Anne’s Family of Spas is excited to announce the new addition of the Ste. Anne’s Marketplace Bakery. The bakery opened on July 19, 2012 and is already becoming a must see for guests and locals alike.
Canada’s Favourite Spa found that more and more of their guests were requesting gluten-free meals, in the hopes of lessening the symptoms of Gluten Intolerance, Celiac Disease, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Schizophrenia, Diabetes, Cancer, Lymphoma, Dermatitis Herpetiformis, Thyroid Disease and food allergies or sensitivities. Executive Chef, Christopher Ennew, in collaboration with Ste. Anne’s Property Director Jake O’Connor, who has first-hand experience preparing gluten-free meals, have together worked to develop a wide array of gluten-free products which are now served daily at the Inn and made available at Ste. Anne’s Bakery.
“As we are specializing in gluten-free baked goods, we wanted to have a facility where we could develop and create these products,” said Tina Abernethy, Executive Assistant to the General Manager. “This opportunity came up and it was in a location that we thought would be fun to have a bakery outlet that was open not only to our guests, but to the public as well.”
The bakery specializes in gluten-free products, but they also carry a wide assortment of breads, baguettes, scones, cookies, tarts and muffins all of which are baked fresh daily. They also feature delicious treats such as éclairs and other gourmet items for those with a sweet tooth.
Given the rave reviews so far, Ste. Anne’s Spa is already planning on expanding the bakery to offer “meals to go” which will include menu favourites such as the Ste. Anne’s Burger and Lasagna. Each is made with our own high quality beef raised on the property that is hormone and antibiotic free. The bakery is another way for guests to take a piece of Ste. Anne’s home with them and share the experience with their families.
“It is a great thing for our guests; it allows the experience to continue long after they’ve checked out,” said Abernethy. “They have the opportunity to stop by the bakery and purchase a latte for the drive home, fresh bread and treats for their families, or unique gifts and products from local farms. The best part is that after you have spent that day or night pampering yourself, you can easily pick up some gourmet items for a treat or a lovely meal for your family.”
The bakery is open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Thursday to Monday and is located just 1.5 km South-East from the Main Inn at 252 Academy Hill Road.
