'A gluten-free and dairy-free lasagne – now that is something!'
Booja-Booja Chilled Chocolate Truffle Selection
'The first freefrom chilled truffle I've seen – comes so much closer to that wonderful soft creaminess of a traditional fresh truffle.'
Gluten Free Uprising Shortcrust Pastry
'Wow – a gluten and dairy-free ready-to-roll pastry! Not particularly ‘short’ but has a very nice texture and it manages to hold its shape – really hard to do in gluten-free pastry.' 'Bakes to a pleasing golden colour, and really useful that it works well in both savoury and sweet recipes.'
PureBred Pancake Mix
'A nice, convenient innovation; the texture-improving bamboo fibre content is unusual too.'
Farabella Fresh (Stabilised) Pasta Orechiette
'Lovely to see a new, sophisticated shape in freefrom fresh pasta!' ' Rustic, looks homemade, very pretty and tastes great.'
Mash Direct Vegetable Burgers with Spring Greens
'Lovely fresh vegetable burgers – no beans!' 'The manufacturers have really captured the vegetable flavours, and I just love the inclusion of the spring greens.'
Sweet Goodness SOLOaf
'OK – so it tastes a bit like cake but what amazing convenience to have your bread in a packet, cookable in minutes in a microwave!' 'How did they do that?... Very innovative product – a bit over moist and cakey but I am sure they could improve it. But even as it is, what a useful product to have in the store cupboard or for travelling.'
