  • TESTIMONIAL:  Just had dinner last night at the 6 Mile Pub on Old Island Highway. Wow! I have eaten here before but was amazed again at the GF menu selection, presentation, deliciousness, and the feeling of safety eating there. We went with another family and it was so awesome that I could share food with others who easily ordered GF even though they aren’t Celiac because there is just so many good things to choose from. The calamari is the best I have had anywhere. All the deserts were gluten free. How is this possible I wondered? I asked the waitress and she told me the chef is Celiac! We need more Celiac chefs that are this creative!! I this has got to be best restaurant for dinner for Celiacs in the Victoria area.

Stella's Celiac Awareness Contest D

Keri and Korbin

Keri and son, Korbin

Stella’s story began with a little boy, a very sore tummy and finally,  a diagnosis. Autism. With tons of therapy, natural interventions and changes to Korbin’s diet, Stella’s Gluten-Free Perogies were born. Dairy, egg, and soy-free, Keri was able to reverse 95% of Korbin’s symptoms. She and her husband were on their way to getting their baby back using her grandmother Stella’s recipe and fresh potatoes from a local farmer as their base. Stella’s non-GMO and preservative-free Perogies, Ravioli and Pizza Pouches took the 2014 Canadian Celiac Association National Conference by storm.

What sings about Stella’s is that they are made from fresh potatoes, delivered daily to their dedicated gluten-free facility in Lacombe, Alberta by the farmer who grows them. That means they are wheat free, gluten free, sulfite free, soy free and GMO free. Also available in dairy, lactose and casein free.

Compare Stella’s with perogies that contain up to 22 ingredients and you’ll know that hers is a product dedicated to purity. Stella’s uses only certified gluten-free ingredients in a dedicated facility but still tests finished products to confirm that they are 100% gluten free.

Don’t give ‘gluten-free’ perogies, manufactured in a wheat-based facility, a second glance. Trust in Stella’s!
