MELBOURNE | Have you ever tried a gluten free version of something and been totally unimpressed by how much it sucks compared to the “real” version? I find it happens often. For me it’s not much of a big deal as I’m totally fine eating gluten, but it’s not ideal for those who can’t.

Felix Goodwin, the new Executive Pastry Chef at the Hotel Windsor, and his chef wife Elena Nguyen decided to tackle the problem (Felix’s mum is coeliac), and after several months of recipe development, recently launched GF Desserts. 🎉

The aim with GF Desserts is to offer those who are coeliac and gluten intolerant a concise range of quality baked goods that are every bit as good as their gluten equivalents.

Felix dropped off some of his creations a few weeks ago, and straight up, I was impressed by the lot. I also gave some to gluten intolerant friend of mine who gave them the thumbs up.

Felix’s experience at Donovans, Saigon Sally, BKK, and Sunda, comes through in many of the creations, which incorporate Asian influences and native Australian ingredients.

One of my favourite cookies in Melbourne right now is Felix and Elena’s coffee and wattleseed “Mars Bar” cookie. It’s a rich coffee and chocolate cookie filled with a soft wattleseed nougat and gooey salted caramel centre. So good.

I also tried an assortment of caneles, the French dessert of the moment. I highly recommend the Japanese tea set, which contains hojicha, matcha, and genmaicha caneles. And speaking of “of the moment”, there’s also hazelnut and chocolate babka which is awesome.

More things have already been added to menu since (sour cherry, coconut, and chocolate doughnut anyone?) and the range with bee expanding further with things like loaves of bread late on in the year.

If you’re in Melbourne and coeliac of gluten intolerant, trying these is a no brainier. What’s more impressive is that they’re worth trying even if you’re fine with gluten. You can order pick up or delivery on the gift shop section of the Hotel Windsor website.⁣
