It was such a treat to be invited to preview Beyond Bread’s gluten free Christmas range this year, courtesy of Selfridges Food Hall. For those of you who haven’t discovered them yet, Beyond Bread are a 100% gluten free bakery in London and their treats are second-to-none. From gluten free mince pies to gluten free panettone, they have some amazing goodies on offer for coeliacs and other gluten freers this festive season. All these goodies will be available in Beyond Bread stores and their Selfridges Food Hall concession from Monday 4th December – don’t walk, run!
Beyond Bread Gluten Free Christmas Range
Price – £1.50
It wouldn’t be Christmas without this festive classic. We really enjoyed these, even though I am not usually a mince pie fan (my husband, on the other hand, could eat them for every meal). The Beyond Bread pastry is excellent and the filling delicious. Perfectly balanced proportions and not overly sweet.
Chocolate Yule Slices
Price – £3.50
WOWIE! Beyond Bread are offering patisserie-quality chocolate yule log slices this year and they are divine. Beautiful too, with glossy chocolate on the outside and swirls of sponge and chocolate mousse filling. A must-try with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
Chocolate Chip Panettone
Price – £3.00
Packed full of chocolate chips, these little gluten free panettone were immense when warmed slightly in the microwave. All the chocolate goes melty and the gluten free panettone sponge softens up perfectly, giving the yielding buttery Italian cake. These babies didn’t last long in our house and I am sure they will sell out in record time!
Christmas Tree Gingerbread Biscuits
Price – £2.00
How cute are these?! These gluten free gingerbread Christmas trees are bound to keep both kids and adults happy. They are topped with impeccable icing and have a fab taste to match.
Chocolate Yule Log
Price – £28.00
Last but not least, treat the whole family (without the effort of slaving away yourself) with this full-size gluten free chocolate yule log. The quality of the chocolate is excellent and this cake is wonderfully rich without being sickly, covered in flaked chocolate. This would be a stunning addition to your gluten free Christmas table.
*Thank you to Selfridges Food Hall and Beyond Bread for inviting me to preview the full range and providing samples of these gluten free Christmas goodies.*
