Eating good quality gluten free food, mainly in Edinburgh


M&S Gluten Free Ciabatta

This week I tried the M&S own brand gluten free ciabatta. I have already eaten the olive ciabatta rolls a number of times – they are a good size to keep in the freezer and defrost as needed.

The ciabatta is part baked, so requires a short time in the oven. The instructions say to place direct on the oven shelf. However, if you share your kitchen with gluten fiends as I do, it is best to put the ciabatta on something such as a piece of kitchen roll, to avoid contamination.

The ciabatta cuts nicely and tastes good without grittiness. I would keep these on hand for quick use and would happily serve to gluten eaters at a communal meal.

While it is not as soft and pliable as a “normal” ciabatta, I would still give 4 out of 5.
