In The Spotlight: Our Gluten-Free Dumpling Mix.

Hi again dumpling lovers!

Have a look at our hints and tips so you get the best out of your Chef’s Promise dumpling mix!

  • Your dumplings don’t have to be savoury – they can be sweet too! Just add a fruity centre to your mix. Visit our sister page Suet Secrets to see more!
  • Spice it up – add paprika, chilli flakes or garlic to your dumplings to give them an added kick.
  • Like your dumplings to be crisp – give them a blast in the oven before you add them to your stew to simmer.
  • Make sure you add your dumplings to a gently simmering casserole or stew, if you add them to boiling liquid your delicate dumplings might disintegrate :O!
  • You can shape your dumplings however you like, just remember to adjust your cooking times! Larger dumplingse will take longer to cook while little dumplings will be done in a flash!
  • Not sure you’ll have time to use all that lovely mix … make a batch of dumplings and freeze them, although we don’t think they’ll stay in the freezer for long ;).
  • Remember you can buy your mix on our website, just click here to see our full range of products!
