Meet the Baker - Ruby Rabbit

With a passion for food and a flair for creating smiles, owner Galaxy Phan founded Ruby Rabbit in 2011.  Gluten intolerant herself, Galaxy ventured off to make the world a happier place. 

Ruby Rabbit is committed to providing delicious gluten free food made with natural ingredients. Products are baked from scratch and are free of preservatives, and artificial colourings and flavourings.  The result - real food with great taste.  

This Sunday from 1-4 pm at the Goulbourn Museum, Ruby Rabbit will be offering crowd favourites such as pumpkin spice, banana coconut and lemon cranberry bread. Come visit us and take a leap of taste!

Meet the Baker - Bez Gluten Free

Bez Gluten Free makes gluten-free baked goods that taste like the real thing. Their kitchen produces sweet loaves such as banana bread, brownies, tarts, cupcakes and cookies

"We have two goals: One to have our goodies taste just like the real thing and secondly, to make gluten-free affordable so our products are priced similarly to other high quality items," says Samantha, one of the owners at Bez. "We pride ourselves on our quality so gluten-eaters and not just those who are gluten-free, can enjoy them."

Treats from Bez Gluten Free will be available at the Museum this Sunday, December 2 from 1-4 pm.

Meet the Artist - Claude LeBel

Claude LeBel has been turning wood for over six years.  He is an active member of the Valley Woodturners in Ottawa and has acted as an assistant instructor for the beginner’s woodturning course offered by the club.

Having studied under world-renowned woodturners such as Mike Mahoney and Jimmy Clewes, Claude is passionate about his hobby.  His artistic flare adds to the beauty and uniqueness of his creations. Form and function are important elements in his designs. He believes that not only should his creations be nice to look at, they should be used and enjoyed as well.

With just over six years’ experience, Claude considers his passion for woodturning a “work in progress”. However the beauty and creativity of his pieces would suggest otherwise.

You can find Claude's work at Uniquely Goulbourn: Art & Craft Sale on Sunday December 2, 2012, from 1-4.
