Multi-award winning Oast to Host, the gluten & wheat free bakery brand, is sharing its secret flour formulas with caterers, hoteliers and food service providers everywhere.
Oast to Host is launching two brand new flours. Pastry Flour which has been expertly blended to create perfectly crisp puff or shortcrust pastry and a Cake Flour which bakers can turn into a light fluffy cake sponge.
The flour range is completely gluten free, wheat free and vegetarian. The creation of the blended formulas contains a blend of corn, rice, potato, xanthan and egg albumen. When it comes to working with gluten free flours, this range will change your mind forever.
Oast to Host Pastry Flour: The multi award-winning pastry flour is so easy to use, roll and bake which makes it perfect for beginners or experts. The result is crunchy and smooth, impossible to tell apart from ordinary pastry. The flour blend is extremely versatile as it can be made into sweet, plain or dairy free shortcrust, puff pastry or shortbread.
Puff Pastry – the puff pastry (see the website for recipe) is an exciting development which delivers a light crisp layered pastry suitable for fabulous cheese straws, sausage rolls, pies and tatins.
Shortcrust – the shortcrust pastry (see the website for recipe) is crisp and buttery with a great texture. It’s perfect for blind baking and will create a superb base for your filling, enhancing the eating experience.
Oast to Host Cake Flour creates a really moist light sponge which is perfect for sticky toffee pudding, scones, blinis, biscuits and of course, cakes.
“Gluten free pastry is notoriously tricky to get right using the usual wheat replacement flours. Co-founder Claire and I have spent years iterating the recipe to get it absolutely perfect. It has been a joy that so many professional and celebrity chefs, together with home cooks have come back to us with their positive feedback. We weren’t planning to launch our flours for retail until we were approached by a major supermarket, we know the customer demand is there and it’s time for us to share our secret!” Comments Oast to Host co-founder Sally Black.
The range is available in environmentally friendly paper based recyclable packaging. The flour can be ordered from Oast to Host directly in 3kg, 15kg, or 25kg quantities, or indeed any bespoke size upon request.
