More cakes! Not that we’re complaining. If only they didn’t taste so good and I wouldn’t feel the urge to eat so many of them. Our latest cake delivery was from Amanda Rayworth-Kiernan and the nice people at The Gluten Free Kitchen based in Hove, East Sussex. They specialise in super-cute gluten free cupcakes, birthday cakes, and wedding cakes.

We loved the packaging on these cakes, which arrived in something similar to an egg box. It means the cupcakes don’t get damaged in the post and so make the perfect birthday pressie for a gluten free friend. Read the rest of this article »

New Udi’s gluten free products

Aaah. There’s always something totally ace about coming back from lunch and finding a hamper from Udi’s sitting on your desk.

Since we first heard of Udi’s last year, the US brand has slowly been introducing new gluten free products to the range. And we were chuffed to try some different Udi’s products.

We’ve tried Udi’s raisin and cinnamon bagels before which were absolutely yummy. So we had high hopes for the sun dried tomato ones – and they didn’t disappoint. In fact, I’d go as far to say that Udi’s are the best brand for bagels. These are moist, springy and tasty. The OH had one with bacon and I had mine with cream cheese. Delish.

Provena gluten free products

Provena has launched a range of home-baking and breakfast products that are made from pure oats and are 100% gluten free, including all purpose flours, baking mixes, cereal and muesli, instant oat meal and porridge.

Oat protein doesn’t contain the type of gluten found in wheat, rye or barley because it comes from a different family of cereals. But in order for oat products to remain gluten free, it’s important they don’t come into contact with any cereals containing gluten at any stage. Read the rest of this article »

Dell’Ugo Gluten Free Chickpea Fusilli: the UK’s first branded chilled GF pasta

We wrote about Dell’Ugo gluten free penne last year. And now we’ve got to try their deliciously nutty gluten free chickpea fusilli too, which was an innovation award winner at the 2013 FreeFrom Food Awards.

Like the penne, the fusilli cooks exactly like regular pasta and the fat spirals keep their shape perfectly. Absolutely delicious served with a homemade tomato sauce, and a quick and healthy supper that can be rustled up in minutes.
