And the shortlist is out!

As you may know, I helped to judge the Teatime category (you can find my personal favourites here), but there’s lots more to discover in the list. If you haven’t tried the White Rabbit pizza yet, then you must. We’ve tried this at a food fair, and it is amazing. Pink Peppercorn Sourdough from Twice as Nice Bakery sounds good – and I’m delighted to see that Tesco is offering a gluten free children’s birthday cake.

Here is the full list of all items shortlisted for the various Free From Food Awards…
