Award Winning Luxury Christmas Puddings

Sticky Toffee Pudding wins an award

Christine's Christmas Puddings featured in the Bournemouth Echo,

…and gets a mention and recommendation from Xanthe Clay in The Saturday Telegraph Weekend section and is also featured live on Radio Solent's Foodie Friday with Katie Martin

Christine's Frangipane Tartwins another award!

An attractive individual tart. The gluten free pastry is crisp,
and the balance of raspberry and almond is right. This is an impressive example of a gluten, wheat and dairy-free product.

and also Christine's Sticky Toffee Pudding wins an award

Both these products were entered into the main non gluten free categories, so it was great to see that they got awards for 'taste' rather than just being gluten free.


Christine's Gluten-free and dairy-free Frangipane has won the
FreeFrom Food Awards scones, sweet biscuit and cookie category

plus also a Runner Up of the FAIR Trophy for the best free-from food 2013

"This tart has a lovely taste and almond flavour, this was another product I was lucky enough to judge and I was truly amazed that this tart is gluten and dairy free. it was served warm at the awards night and was delicious." Gluten free cake lover
