correspondance re our products - Oast To Host

Dear Sally and Claire,

I have been GF for 20+ years. I was given an Oasttohost GF and wheat free Plain Shortcrust Pastry sample at Hartley Dyke Farm Shop Hartley Rd Cranbrook TN17 3QG. I made plain biscuits with it in the oven tonight. My partner who eats everything got home and also tried them. The pastry is excellent. It is the best GF pastry I have had yet. Furthermore my partner said it was ‘as good as normal pastry’. Fantastic you have made an excellent product.

Regards A.

Greetings! A dear friend introduced me to your biscotti earlier this year when we met in Scotland for holiday. I live in the USA, and have found nothing comparable here.

Regards P.


On Monday evening 2/2/15, I was certain the I had died and gone to heaven but

in actual fact,  all I had done was to eat one of your sticky toffee puddings which
I can with all certainty say it was the best thing I have eaten in many a year.
I cannot wait to get back to Eggs to Apples to purchase more of them.


Dear Claire
Made a ham leek and potato pie using the pastry mix. My first pie in ages! Pastry delicious. My husband loved it too. Thank you so much. I hope you had a lovely Christmas.  I would love to have more of the mix , so will be in touch..



I bought some chocolate brownies from Fullers farm shop  and they are absolutely delicious.  Unfortunately I live in London and wondered where is the nearest stockist?


Thank you for the pastry mixes and quiches (for when I’m too lazy to make one myself!). Will log onto your website to find the recipes you mentioned. My husband’s mouth watered at the mention of Beef Wellington! Made a blackberry and apple pie for family at weekend. So impressed with the way I could put a top on it without it falling to pieces…Such a treat! Once again, thank you. I hope you will find a distributor in Romsey soon.


Your lemon drizzle cake is so good.  I am lactose intolerant and gluten sensitive  – very difficult to feed.
Found your products at Notcutts, Pembury, a few weeks ago but was disappointed to find absolutely nothing is there anywhere else local that carries your goodies?

Reply: Thank you for your email , we are not supplying Notcutts at present. Fullers at Eridge Park, and Locality in Tunbridge wells are probably your nearest stockists of our products.


 Hi I tasted your lemon tart at a friends  house – it was delicious. I am a coeliac so would love to buy more of your food. A.

“Hi Claire/Sally,

  Thank you for the quiches last month – I still have a couple of pieces of the mixed vegetable one left, but both have been delicious (both hot and cold from frozen)


“Dear Ladies,

Thank you for some lovely tasty bites from your stall in T Wells.

I was wondering if you could find a stockist in the Lewes area???

Just hoping!”


A customer from Tunbridge Wells – “Thank you so much for the quiche.  We had it for dinner tonight.  It was truly excellent. The flavours – yummy, the texture was fantastic.  10/10”


“We bought a lemon tart and a treacle tart at the farmers market yesterday. Probably the nicest GF pastry i have ever tasted. I shall be back for more!”


” Delicious brownie from you at tunbridge wells farmers market today. Thank you will be back next month…”

I bought a GF trifle from you at the Tunbridge Wells Farmers Market earlier this month.I took it home and split it into small portions, I froze most of it and defrosted when I wanted some.

It may not have looked how it did in its original form but it was absolutely delicious with no nasty side effects from having been frozen.

Another winner from your lovely stall, keep it up, I always look forward to the treats you have which are far and above better than anything that can be bought in a supermarket



“Hope you had a good Christmas. Just to let you know the pudding was the best I have ever tasted. I really think you would find you have a market for an alcohol free pudding that tastes this good. Also the pies were really good”  said Mrs W..
