Hello, I am writing to you to commend your mixes. I always recommend your mixes to anyone I see at the flour isle in shops. We also use the Cheddar & Sundried Tomato mix sliced length ways as a very tasty pizza base, we also use your cake mixes and the Mixed Grain. We use a bread machine, we recently purchased a new one as we wore the old one out. When we first started making bread we did try a few different mixes but then we discovered yours and have never looked back. We make 3-4 loaves a week as it is so tasty it’s addictive! The only downside is that the bread has such a rise that the slices don't fit all the way into my toaster - ha ha. Keep up the good work and I look forward to using your products for many years to come. With regards and many thanks,

Mrs. Harris

Deb's Tips

This tasty bread is welcoming when served hot with a Mediterranean dish. It is also excellent when cold, cut into cubes for parties - stick a cocktail stick in a cube and a further olive on the top. Deb the Bread
