Gluten-free Baker, Lucia Vitiello

by Lori Miller

When I first saw Lucia Vitiello's Instagram profile, I was captured and intrigued by all the beautiful creations she posted, but I was even more amazed to learn that she has had no formal baking or culinary training and just started baking in 2015 when her boyfriend was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

 

She said that because they live in Naples, it is impossible to live without bread and pizza, so she researched everything she could about gluten-free flours and other ingredients, so her boyfriend didn't have to miss out. Her products have become so near perfect these days; she's gone gluten-free and abandoned classic gluten-loaded pastries herself!

Now three years later, she's got herself a 100% dedicated gluten-free kitchen, and she bakes daily for customers and her boyfriend's needs. She's producing gluten-free bread, pizza, biscuits, and cakes. 

 

When I asked her what her customer's reactions are, she said they are surprised at how soft everything is, and she's so thrilled to watch them eat her products with so much pleasure. She focused on the point that making others happy, and being able to see the joy in people's eyes, is the best part of her job.

 

Lucia lives in Naples, Italy, and during her time off she is very active and involved in sports. When asked what her favorite cuisine was, she said "Italian, of course! You can see all of Lucia's delicious baked goods on her Instagram profile.
