Bready and Chartwells Bring Gluten-Free to Campuses

Last year Michelle covered some tips for using a bread machine to make gluten-free bread, and you had a lot to say. Ditto my post last year about being gluten-free in college.

So, I thought you might be interested in this press release from Chartwells and Bready, announcing a partnership to get gluten-free breadmakers to college campuses.

Who are these companies?

Well, Chartwells is a company that provides dining hall services to schools, put simply. And Bready is a breadmaking system involving specialized mixes and a specialized “robot” machine.

Recently Chartwells has started offering a service called made without gluten (lowercase intentional) for their clients. The program, not surprisingly, allows these cafeterias to offer gluten-free menu options. As a part of the program, cafeterias will be using Bready bread.

The program tested well at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, University of Miami, Quinnipiac University, the University of Nevada Reno, and the University of Maryland Baltimore County, according to the release.

The Bready-specific mixes are for everything from pizza crust to hamburger rolls to banana nut bread. And the Chartwells program is more comprehensive than just making gluten-free bread. Recipes apparently include vegetable pakoras, tikka fish skewers with yogurt and pappadams, korma chicken curry and spicy Middle Eastern meatloaf.

I’m totally jealous. Or at least, I think I am. I haven’t been to a Chartwells-run kitchen, nor have I eaten anything made by the Bready robot.

Have you? How was it?
