‘Free from’ baking

When we opened the Black Dog 6 years ago, ‘free from’ was still very much in it’s infancy with very few eateries offering a gluten or dairy free as part of their standard offering.

Today speciality diet eating has never been so high on the radar with regular focus in the media, ever growing alternative ingredients available in supermarkets and many top chefs & food bloggers showing us how it’s done. 2015 saw a strong trend for healthy, mindful eating encouraging people to try gluten, sugar & dairy free dishes for their health benefits. Our customers (both intolerants and non intolerants) regularly choose our gluten free cakes, bread & dishes based on their own tasty merit, the popularity of our breakfast stack (bacon, avocado, roasted tomato, spinach and feta) is tantamount to the deliciousness of free from eating.

Free from certainly means you don’t have to compromise on flavour – our free from cakes stand proudly in their own right and have more than earned their places in our baking repertoire. From meltingly dense and fudgy chocolate hazlenut torte to our best selling brownies (which most people don’t know are gluten free!) to our zingy citrus flavours in Orange & Orange or Lemon polenta cake.

We’ve launched 2 new dairy free alternatives this month; pairing a flavour match in heaven – chocolate and orange cake and a classic carrot cake tasting every bit as luscious as the original.
