New flavours to savour

Discover new products....

Gluten free food fairs, should you get the chance to go to one, are well worth the trip. Even after 11 years, we still find new products.

We went across country, to Teesside, to a food fair we’d not been to before, because coeliac daughter has been asking for a chance to go to one for a while now. They don’t come up very often, and we usually have to travel.

This food fair, organised by the Cleveland Coeliac Group, was great. Not huge  probably about 15 suppliers of gluten free products, together with a few other stalls  but very well organised. The small coffee bar was stocked with home made gluten free scones (fruit or cheese), and they’d arranged a colouring table for the children who weren’t wandering around tasting all the samples.

My daughter tasted a lot of different things. Not all  she couldn’t bring herself to taste the fish cakes, and she’d run out of enthusiasm for cake after a while  but we discovered new things, which is what we went for. Plus, as always, the wonderful thing about these events is that she can eat anything in the room without worrying!

We tried lots of free samples, were given some samples to take away, and bought rather more things than I’d been planning to.

The Dough balls  mix from Isabel’s Naturally Free From (Brazilian Flavours),

Easy-to-prepare and convenient...

which makes up into delicious light cheese breads, they are naturally gluten free. Daughter went back several times to sample more of these!

I just love finding new things that my daughter actively enjoys eating, rather than just eating because she needs to eat.

I tried the Brazilian Flavours pizza base mix for the first time last week. It actually made a thin and crispy base that was really easy to roll out the best gluten free pizza I’ve tasted!

My kids love the cheesebreads too and the younger 2 aren’t coeliac so that is definitely a good recommendation as it is often difficult to get anything gluten free past their lips!

Hi Helen, I think the cheesebreads are yummy too. We haven’t tried the pizza base yet. Will you be stocking these?

Hi Lucy,

Yes we already do stock the pizza base mix. I am just off to make some now for my hungry 19 year old!

All you’ll need to prepare these delicious mini cheesebread bites is:

Mini Cheesebread Bites

250g of Isabel’s cheesebread mix

160ml water

2.5 Tbsp vegetable oil

100g of grated cheddar cheese

1 larger egg lightly whisked or (20g of egg replacer)

Pre-heat the oven to 200C (180C fan oven) Gas Mark 6.

Place the ingredients in large bowl. Mix well by hand or pulse in a food processor until

all the liquid is absorbed by the flour and the dough becomes smooth and pliable.

Take small pieces of the dough and roll into small balls of approximately 3cm diameter each piece. Place on a non-stick baking tray 2cm apart.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. The mini cheesebreads will be ready when they start to turn slightly golden. (Don’t forget to use oven gloves!)

A treat on their own!

Freezing instructions:

Freeze and then keep in air tight container or freezer bags...

1. Mould the unbaked dough into balls and place on a non-stick baking tray (it does matter if the little balls get on top of each other for freezing, you’ll be able to break them apart after they are frozen). 2. Cover with cling film and put them in the freezer. After 2-3 hours remove from the freezer. 3. Place frozen dough balls into freezer bags and use within 2 months. bake direct from frozen on a pre-heated oven, 2cm apart.
