I've been here today - to the Brown and Green Store situated within the Derby Garden Centre in Little Eaton. I was really impressed with the gluten free range. I've been before to be honest but I'm sure they've extended their products.
There seems to be more gluten free bread, pasta and cakes available. They even stock a good range of the Doves Farm flours which is great as I have gone baking mad with my breadmaker. To add to that they had a few fresh gluten free products available. I purchased a gluten free Spring Onion Savoury Scotch Egg which I'm really chuffed about as I've been craving a scotch egg for ages. Yippee!!
I also purchased some Doves Farm Brown Bread Flour which I was also happy about as I wanted to bake some brown bread but hadn't seen the brown flour available anywhere before. I know it's available online with Doves Farm but I'm loving that I can now go and get it locally.
I love the fact that I can buy fresh vegetables here and they have lovely flavours of jams, curds and chutneys - this could be my favourite shop now.
So how did I bake my brown bread? Well if you go to my post last week regarding the white loaf made in the Breadmaker here:
gluten-free-bread-in-the-breadmaker.html and all I did was swap the white flour for the brown flour and baked it exactly the same. So give it a go.
The Brown and Green Store can be found in Derby at:

There are other locations in the UK too as can be found on the website so I hope you can get to a store and share these lovely goodies. Let me know if you have been and were you happy too? I would be interested to know.
