Meaty and Fishy Ready Meals – Sponsored by Mrs Crimbles
Hotch Potch Bacon, Leek & Cheesy Pie
‘Fabulous appearance, excellent taste, very more-ish – lovely to have a gluten-free pie. Great for a picnic and so good that you can eat it hot or cold. Looks beautiful, tastes really great, crust is perfect, great flavour.'
BigFish Brand Salmon Fillets Marinated in Garden Mint
‘Lovely fresh salmon – you would never know that it was frozen. A very nice marinade – the mint was delicate and delicious – and great that it is free from so many allergens.'
Debbie & Andrew's Perfect Pork Sausages
‘Marvellous – a gluten and dairy free tasty sausage in a natural pork casing. Great flavour and I love that there is no potato in this. Not too strong a flavour so would appeal to children. Delicious.'
Tesco Breaded Scampi
'Wow – I haven't been able to have these for years! And what's more they are dairy, egg and soya free too. Great flavour and indistinguishable for 'ordinary breaded scampi' – they really fill a gap in the market.'
Better Than Rice Chicken Massaman Curry
'Nice flavour, interesting ingredients – great to have a nut free massaman! Great freefrom credentials. Interesting textures – unusual but lovely flavours. I would happily eat the lot! Love how quick and easy to prepare it is.'
The Black Farmer Pork Chipolatas
‘Good sausage: good meat content, looks good with a satisfying texture, no compromise, wide appeal. Great texture; shame this contains soya bean flour – could it be replaced to make it soya free too?'
Yorkshire Provender Roast Chicken Soup with Traditional Vegetables
‘Honestly, you can taste all the fresh vegetables and pearl barley. Rich flavour without being overpowering. High protein content good but a shame that it contains dairy.'
