SPRING 2019

Gracie Jones Gluten Free Bakery, Palo Alto graciejonesbakeshop.com A 4-year-old boy inadvertently brought celiac disease to the attention of chef Gracie Jones, just under a decade ago when she was transitioning from working as a fine-dining chef to opening up the fast-casual Asian Box chain. She learned that the boy was unable to eat gluten — a substance commonly found in breads, baked goods, pasta and cereals — because his body couldn’t process it.
