We’re so grateful to all of you have pledged already to our Kickstarter to bring the Gluten-Free Girl Flour Blends to market. This morning we passed $25,000 pledged, and we launched a week ago today. Hurrah!
However, we still have a looong way to go to bring you two great flour blends: an all-purpose blend that works as a 1 to 1 replacement for bleached wheat flour, free of all major allergens, and a grain-free blend that tastes delicious. We have 22 days left (well, 21 after this day is over) to raise another $53,000.
(I’m trying very hard to get sleep at night.)
We’ve done our research. The middle two weeks of a month-long Kickstarter campaign are generally much slower than the first and last week. Danny and I have been talking about this: it feels like a restaurant. Some weeks are busy, and some weeks are painfully slow. In restaurants, it’s important to remind the regulars to come in for a new experience. And so here, too.
Every day for this week and next week, we’ll be offering daily specials on the gluten-free Kickstarter. Each day, we’ll be doing new rewards with limited numbers of backers. For example, yesterday we offered a 4-course dinner for four at our kitchen studio for $500. All three of those rewards went in about 2 hours! (If there is more interest, we might have to offer more.) We have plans for holiday baking classes, personal consultations, classes for couples, and other ways we can feed and help you.
But today, it’s all about the cookies.
For a pledge of $125, we will send you 2 dozen gluten-free cookies. You can choose from chocolate chip cookies, brownies, or cherry-hazelnut biscotti. And of course, we’ll tailor the cookies to meet all your food allergies/intolerances.
This would be a great holiday present for someone you love! Or for yourself.
(And this is for all of you who put comments on our Instagram and Facebook photos, asking for the recipe immediately. We’ll send you the treat instead! And we’ll give you the recipe too.)
It’s limited to 10 backers, and 5 of them have gone in the first 2 hours of this offer, so act quickly.
p.p.s. I’m still going to tell you more about the grain-free blend, so you can start dreaming of that grain-free sourdough bread.
