About Us

Ciao Gluten is an artisanal gluten-free bakery and fresh pasta producer. All products are hand-made in our dedicated gluten-free kitchen in Haarlem.
Our secret is passion and high quality. We only work with fresh and natural ingredients.

After having discovered to have a gluten allergy few years ago, Mirko Baldi (founder) decided to turn the initial shock into a challenge and started to bake delicious cakes for cafes in Amsterdam.

In 2019 Valentina Cesari has joined the company. She is a real Bolognese “sfoglina”, Italian definition for a woman specialised in making hand-made pasta. Lasagna, tortellini and Bolognese sauce are “something really serious” for her.

We perfectly combine our skills and knowledge. Our goal is to make gluten-free products that taste as good as the “glutinous” ones, even better!

We regularly experiment with new recipes, using different ingredients. From breads to cakes & desserts, fresh pasta & gnocchi, we have created our own mix of flours for our recipes, using only natural ingredients (including rice, corn, tapioca, quinoa, buckwheat, chestnut, almond and chickpeas).

We don’t use any preservative, artificial colourant or chemical aroma, but only fresh and natural ingredients to guarantee the best quality, taking care of your and our health.
