Patchogue’s Michelle Gillette Kelly not only loves baking, she’s been perfecting the art of making top-notch gluten-free baked goods through her company Ms. Michelle’s for over a decade.
“We make gluten-free taste great” is the motto.
So that must mean her traditional baked breads and confections are out of this world.
“Our products are locally sourced natural and organic,” reads a recent post on the bakery’s Facebook page. “We bake everything by hand and the love of Mademoiselle Michelle goes into each batch. We will have gluten-free, dairy-free, organic and naturally made items.”
The news comes about a year after her Ms. Michelle’s Urban Gourmet gluten-free bakery in Bayport closed.
“I really missed the bakery, I missed the people,” Kelly told GreaterPatchogue, “so I decided to do a new venture.”
“It was a dream come true; I always wanted the spot,” she said of her Patchogue bakery.
Kelly, who manufactures her gluten-free offerings in Calverton, will be including many French bakery staples to what’s shaping up to be a diverse corner of Patchogue Village for foodies.
Mademoiselle’s will be filled daily with croissants, baguettes, quiche, soups, as well as sweet treats like macaroons. And, there will be some gluten-free products.
Once up and operating, an oven will be perfectly situated by the window.
“I am hoping people can watch me cook,” she said. “I love the village and I am really excited, I miss the faces.”
The plans were approved by Patchogue Village last week.
Kelly is hoping to open later this winter.
