Truffleicious in June

As we welcome in flaming June, find out what Truffleicious has to offer.

Another month has flown by. My Stable Kitchen has been busy during the previous few weeks, both with customers & creating new updates for our menu.

Earlier in May, we catered for a film company, who were doing some research, prior to filming at Great Chalfield this month. Forty seven lunches were duly, prepared & packed to sate their appetites on their home bound coach journey.

Their chosen menu, catered for all dietary requirements. Gluten free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian & Vegan, all freshly homemade on the day Four different salads accompanied either, cheddar cheese, feta, olives & sun-dried tomatoes,or humus, along with a selection of six different home made breads. A gluten free Lemon Mousse Cake was also on offer for dessert. It was very gratifying to receive a lovely comment from them, on the visitors book page of my website.

Bread is one of my favourite foods, not he nasty, plastic, additive containing, bread you get from the shops, but real doughy breads, full of flavour & goodness & more that a sprinkling of different seeds. One of the reasons I decided to experiment with different breads was because I have been following a low FodMap diet, you can read my blog on the subject if you follow the link.

Bread at it’s best. With Cheese, inside.

Shop brought bread, I found, was one of the most bloat making foods in my diet. So, rather than give it up, I decided to make my own breads using different Organic flours & local products. The results were amazing, no longer did I swell up like a balloon after eating bread & the flavour was far superior to anything shop bought. I have a strong suspicion that apart from Celiac’s, to whom, gluten is a serious issue, most people who perceive themselves as “Gluten Intolerant” are more susceptible to the additives & preservatives, so commonly found in the mass produced, ready meals & products in today’s food market.

Look forward to seeing a range of my homemade breads served Ploughman’s style with Salads & Smoked Mackerel, Cheddar, humus or Smoked Salmon. Perfect for a picnic.

A very, very, naughty but nice sweet pie is also on the menu. A version of the recipe for my Chocolate, Banana & Peanut Butter Pie, can be found on myrecipeblog This dessert is a great treat for this time of the year as it needs very little cooking, so you won’t have to spend hours in the kitchen.

Making the most of seasonal soft fruits, I have also added a gluten free raspberry ice cream, & pictured at the top of this blog, Chocolate & Strawberry gateaux, also gluten free.

Very naughty, but nice.

On the other hand, if you prefer not to spend any time in the kitchen, you can always visit me at Stables Kitchen, Great Chalfield Manor, Wiltshire & try some of my goodies for yourself. Try some peanut butter tart, topped with fresh banana tart.
