The Christmas Range

Christmas at Denise’s Delicious Gluten Free Bakery is a very exciting time. Christmas tends to begin mid Summer when the bakery manager starts to order vast amounts of ingredients to prepare for the busy season. Plump fruits such as sultanas and cherries, aromatic spices such as cinnamon and ginger and of course brandy, which gives that rich flavour and moist texture that everyone loves, are all featured on the sacred Christmas ingredients list.

Denise’s Delicious Mince Pies seem to be everyone’s favourite, so much so that one year the bakery received a call from a very concerned lady. Denise recalls the moment very clearly; The lady questioned whether these pies were actually gluten free, when we reassured her that of course they were and that we are a dedicated gluten free bakery, the lady then replied ‘but the pastry doesn’t crumble like gluten free pastry’, after this reaction we knew we were baking something very special!

Last Christmas our specialist bakery baked up to 74,000 mince pies by hand, yes that means 74,000 shortcrust pastry stars cut out and delicately placed on top of the generous mince pie filling. These are placed into our piping hot ovens where the talented bakers patiently observe the mincemeat as it begins to bubble and ooze over the delicate pastry.

“The aroma in the bakery after this first batch is something special and as an annual ritual we all gather around and enjoy a mince pie over a well deserved cup of tea. Once everyone is satisfied with them then it is all systems go” explains Denise.

This year our Christmas Range is presented in beautiful new packaging. We feel the range looks beautiful and truly reflects the excellent quality and taste of our Christmas range. Denise excitedly explains her happiness with the new design stating “We feel the new packaging truly represents the time and care that is given to our range and we are delighted with the feedback from our friends and fans so far”
