Cork business Denise’s Delicious Gluten-Free Bakery is launching a new range of ‘family sharing’ treats to market.
Ireland’s first artisan gluten-free bakery, Denise’s Delicious Gluten Free Bakery, was founded by Denise O’ Callaghan in 2008. The bakery has grown substantially now employing a team of 13 at its base in Little Island, Cork.
In response to demand for popular family ‘free from’ treats, Denise and her team spent over a year in the bakery’s test kitchen perfecting their recipes and incorporating feedback from customer tastings to bring three new family-sharing cakes to market.
Classic family favourites, the range features a Cranberry and Orange Loaf, an Oxford Lunch Cake and for the UK market only, a Chocolate and Orange Loaf. Specially chosen ingredients feature a number of Irish producers including free range eggs from family business, Clonarn Clover in Cavan.
With an increasing national trend for gluten free, latest research finds that one Irish person in every 120 requires gluten-free products. Denise’s Delicious Gluten Free Bakery already offers a number of treats and products for breakfast, gateaux, ‘on the go’ snacks and gluten free ingredients including Denise’s specially blended gluten free flour and gluten free pizza base.
“Consumer demand across our product ranges has increased by 15 per cent over the past year. We listened to feedback from our customers who want tasty, gluten, wheat and dairy free family cakes that all the family can enjoy together. We are very proud to see our new range launching in stores nationwide” said Denise O’ Callaghan, Denise’s Delicious Gluten-Free Bakery.
“The three cakes we created are family favourites and we have learned from popular choices in regular categories to produce delicious ‘free from’ versions. Cranberry is always very popular, Chocolate and Orange is a winning combination and the Oxford Lunch is a traditional classic.”
One of Ireland’s leading producers of cakes and baked products for Coeliacs and those following a ‘free from’ gluten, wheat, dairy and yeast free lifestyle, Denise’s Delicious Gluten-Free Bakery product ranges are available in Ireland from the major supermarkets, artisan food stores and www.delicious.ie.
Denise’s Delicious Gluten-Free Bakery products are also served in Aer Lingus Premium Class and Denise’s first book ‘Delicious – Recipes from my Gluten Free Bakery’ is out now.
A former investment banker, Denise was inspired by her dad, Michael, who is a Coeliac to found her own business Denise’s Delicious Gluten Free Bakery. What began as a home-cooking passion to support him, prompted Denise to open Ireland’s first gluten- free artisan bakery.
