Going the Distance for Gluten

It takes dedication to get your hands on the baked goods from Loshult Handelsbod. If you don’t live in the vicinity (a tiny village in the middle of the deep forests of rural Skåne), you’ll likely have to make a day trip out of it. And to complicate getting your gluten cravings satiated even more, the tiny bakery is open for no more than six hours a week – between 12.00 and 18.00 on Fridays (during the summer Loshult is open throughout the weekend).

With that said, none of the above did the least to deter from paying the spot a visit. Nor should it you. Loshult Handelsbod, which is housed in a gorgeous ancient wooden villa, in the process of being restored by owners Salli and Raphael Bartke (who also is head of PR and marketing at nearby Ikea Museum), serves up the most beautiful variety of loaves of bread. It is also a great spot for a ‘fika’ break – the coffee is by Malmö-based Solde and the cinnamon and cardamom buns are among the best we’ve ever had.
