About

We know: it's rare to hear the words soft, chewy, gooey, and awesome to describe gluten-free baking.  Gluten-free baking seems to have its own unique and often sad vocabulary of words - brick, sawdust, dry, disappointing, and frustrating. This is why we are publishing our cookbook. We want to bring happiness back to eating in spite of gluten and other food sensitivities, and that might just start with an incredibly tasty, messy, and - yes, gooey - gluten-free, dairy-free cinnamon bun.

About the Book 

All of our recipes have been developed by Four Spoons Gluten-Free Bakery co-founder Nicole and enjoyed by lots of people from all over the world. Many of them have come back for seconds, emailed to thank us, or told their friends. 

Here is a quote from one of our bakery customers, Owen (self-described as the carrot-cake guy).  

Over the course of a couple of years, it became an integral part of my Saturday routine... racing to the Farmers' Market after breakfast for my breakfast "dessert"... a piece of Four Spoons' scrumptious carrot cake. With a thick coating of delicious frosting and a secret ingredient - I have long suspected pineapple but we'll see when the recipe comes out - it was always a pleasure, not to mention a pleasure to chat with Matt for a couple of minutes between customers. Thank you for the amazing and healthy baked goods as well as the good company, and all the best for your future (and very interesting) projects.

- Owen 

About the Cooking Show

 It's one thing to read about a recipe and try to create it; it's another to be able to watch someone else make it and then do it yourself. We know that the learning curve is steep when it comes to baking gluten-free. We want to make it as easy as possible for you. This is why we will be producing a 20 episode baking series on our YouTube Channel in conjunction with our book. You'll be able to follow Nicole step-by-step through each recipe, from start to finish. 

 Here is an example of a video series we created for our mini cookbook, Flaky: Gorgeous Gluten and Dairy-Free Pies

Check out this tasty teaser trailer for our gorgeous gluten-free cinnamon buns.  These are the best gluten and dairy-free cinnamon buns ever.  

Our cookbook Soft, Chewy, Gooey, Awesome  will be filled with beautiful photographs and be professionally designed. We've partnered with John Van Der Woude of jvdwdesigns.com to put together our book. He has done some incredible and gorgeous work that has been seen in publications such as the Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail. 

Who we Are 

We’re a husband-wife team who are passionate about gluten-free and allergen-friendly eating. We co-founded a gluten-free micro bakery 3 years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed serving delicious goods at our local farmers market. We also recently launched our gluten-free resource and educational website fourspoonsglutenfreerecipes.com and our YouTube Cooking Channel.  We have an incredible team of professionals working with us to create high-quality and trustworthy resources including two dieticians, a food scientist, and a holistic chef.

Nicole Knegt (pronounced like connect) has a number of food sensitivities including yeast and gluten, and is also anaphylactic to dairy. Nicole is the creative genius and flour-whisperer behind all of our baked goods. She is also the friendly face on our YouTube Cooking Channel.

She has created hundreds of recipes, many of which you can find on our resource website. All are free of gluten and dairy, and many are also free of the top 8 allergens (milk, eggs, fish,  crustacean, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybean). 

Matthew Knegt (our photographer, videographer, and digital guru) also has a handful of food sensitivities, including gluten, yeast, and sugar. He is responsible for all things digital, which includes filming, photography, and those tweets you might read.

What We’ll Do With Your Contribution

We are asking for $15,000 to help see this project come to life. We want to create a product of high-quality and make it something you would be proud to share with your friends. 

Funds raised will be used towards the following (all amounts are approximate):

Kickstarter (which takes 10% of funds raised) - $1,500

Editorial (proofreading, editing) - $1,500

Layout, Design, Formatting - $2,500

Initial Printing of 200 copies + shipping -$2,000

Film Production and Photography - $7,500

Distribution

We are aiming for the following dates:

Soft, Chewy, Gooey, Awesome will be published digitally on December 15th, 2014 -  just in time for that incredible Christmas gift you might be looking for.  Print will be available February 1st, 2015.

Where You Can Purchase:

All major online retailers, e.g., Amazon, iBooks, etc. 

Our website at fourspoonsglutenfreerecipes.com 

Risks and challenges

We have 3 years of happy customers (and tested recipes) behind us, an incredible team, and a proven level of quality as seen on our YouTube Channel. The biggest challenge we foresee moving forward is lack of funds raised!

As you might know, with Kickstarter, if we don't raise all of our goal, we don't receive any funds (funds pledged are returned to donors) . If this happens (and we really don't think it will), we will have to readjust our timeframe and end goal.

We've also been careful to make sure that we are able to fulfill our rewards.
