April News Letter from Truffleicious.
April is here & Spring has sprung, well at least it did for a few days. As well as April showers, this month heralds the first newsletter of the Season from Truffleicious.
Each month we will share with you whats new at Truffleicious, you can subscribe to our news letter through this blog & also add any food suggestions you would like to see added to our menu. If you have visited us & tasted our food, all comments are gratefully received, both positive & negative, if you feel we could have done better.
The grounds at Great Chalfield Manor are looking particularly spectacular, with the onset of the blossoms. As the daffodils fade, the banks of the lake are awash with primroses and the fragrant bluebells are begining to greet another year.
Truffleicious used to trade from The Coach House, next to the tea room at Great Chalfield. This year you will find us in our Stable Kitchen, which is opposite the Stable Block. All our food is take away only. You are welcome to eat any where in the grounds or at the tables outside the tea room. I am also happy to say that after our annual food hygiene inspection today, we have retained our 5* Scores on the Doors rating.
New to the menu for this year. As I write a blog on my sister site Truffleiciousteaches dealing with Low Fodmap diets, as well as my usual gluten free foods, I have now introduced a couple of dishes suitable for people following the LowFodmap diet.
My new Bread rolls, although not Gluten Free, are made with Rye, Spelt & carrot or beetroot which makes them lower in gluten than normal bread. Being home made with Organic Flour, they do not contain additives, flour improvers or huge amount of salt. If you like a good rustic roll, full of goodness, then these are for you. The rolls are served with my home made soup of the day, on their own with butter, or can be made to order, in batches of 6, or more.
Finally, something sweet. With the rising awareness of Sugar & the excessive consumption of the said substance, I am cutting down on the amounts of sugar, contained in my homemade food. Should you want to be really good I have introduced fresh fruit Salad on to my menu. On the other hand, if you want to be really naughty, you can feast on my Strawberry & Pistachio meringues. The ever popular Wiltshire Cider Cake is still on the menu, but made using Spelt, with no added Sugar at all.
Come and see us on Sunday 6th May 2018 & taste our Totally homemade Breads & Savouries
