Exciting new gluten free range of pastries available for tasting at Hunters of Helmsley

The Original Baker will be sampling their delicious new gluten free pies and quiche in store on 16th August

A Helmsley deli will be offering shoppers the chance to taste a delicious new artisan range of gluten free pastries on Friday 16th August.

Hunters of Helmsley is to stock the newly launched all-butter pastry quiches and pies from The Original Baker in Malton, which are sold individually wrapped to ensure they are safe for those who are unable to eat gluten.

Hunters is a renowned deli based in the picturesque village of Helmsley in North Yorkshire, awarded the accolade of Britain’s Best Small Shop in 2015 at the House of Commons.
A range of the gluten free items will be available to try on 16th August, including smoked salmon & horseradish quiche; sweet potato, pepper & chorizo quiche; leek & bacon quiche; slow-cooked beef & vegetable pie and thai vegetable pie with a creamy coconut sauce. All are encased in an all butter pastry made with The Original Baker’s own handmade blend of gluten free flours to achieve the perfect texture, taste and appearance.

Christine Garnett, who owns Hunters of Helmsley with husband Chris, said: “We have an increasing number of people in the shop who are looking for ‘free-from’ products and we always try our best to have a good range of tasty alternatives – there are so many products out there which are sadly lacking in flavour or have an odd texture! But as soon as we saw and tasted this new range from The Original Baker, we knew we had to have it. 
“The quiches and pies are delicious, and I would defy any gluten eater not to be impressed! Many can’t even tell the difference, we’re finding.”

Cheryl Barrett from The Original Baker, added: “We have built a separate facility for our gluten free range and are using brand new equipment – this is something we take very seriously. We’re members of the Coeliac Society and we regularly test our products.
“When we started on this journey, we thought we’d use gluten free flour we could buy in, but it quickly became apparent that none were up to the standard we wanted so we have created our own blend. It was important to us that it baked to an appetizing golden colour, and that it tasted light and buttery and had a delicate texture – we think we’ve achieved that! And we look forward to being at Hunters on 16th August to share them with customers and visitors.”

As well as the gluten free range, The Original Baker will also be offering samples of its wider range including freshly baked warm hog roast sausage rolls; BBQ pulled pork sausage rolls; peppered steak and ale pie; Mediterranean vegetable roll with feta; and brie, tomato and basil quiche.

The award-winning Hunters deli has been based on Helmsley’s Market Place for 29 years. For more information about Hunters of Helmsley go to
