Ms. Michelle's Gluten Free "Brew & Chew" at The Cortland in Bay Shore, New York

Back in September, I first mentioned Chef Michelle and her gluten free baked goods after discovering them at the Farmer's Market at the Tanger Outlets at the Arches in Deer Park, New York.

Well, this upcoming Memorial Day weekend she will be opening her own store, Ms. Michelle's Urban Gourmet in Bayport, New York. Everything in the store will be gluten free and they will sell items such as fresh muffins, pies, cakes, tarts, dry pasta, salads, breads, coffee, tea, espresso, sandwiches, soups and homemade gelato.

In getting ready to open her own store, Ms. Michelle hosted a Gluten Free night at The Cortland in Bay Shore, New York on Saturday, April 30th, 2011.  For the reasonable price of $15, you got a 4-course gluten free sampler meal and each course was paired with a different brand of gluten free beer!  I only sampled Bard's Beer (made from sorghum) as I'm not a fan of beer and was only able to take a few sips until switching to a different drink.

Now for the delicious food...

The first course included three baked clams which were made using Ms. Michelle's gluten free breadcrumbs.

The second course was a gluten free cold noodle dish made using Ms. Michelle's gluten free rice pasta with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.

The third course was a gluten free chicken toast that included chicken, portobello mushrooms, red peppers, and basil on Ms. Michelle's gluten free toast.

The final course was a gluten free chocolate torte topped with raspberries.

I loved everything I sampled and am looking forward to the opening of Ms. Michelle's Urban Gourmet!
