If you’re anything like us, you’ve embraced Fusion food wholeheartedly. We swooned over red wine hot chocolate and we drooled over a cheese and wine toastie that’s like Ugg Boots for your soul, but we’re pretty excited at the arrival of Prosecco mince pies- especially as they are gluten free!
How do they fill them with Prosecco without them going runny, you ask? As reported in Stylist magazine, the brilliant idea comes form Oast to Host and can be ordered from Notonthehighstreet.com. The bakers soak dried fruit in Prosecco to get the sparkling taste. The rest of the ingredients sound equally delicious- fresh oranges, lemons, limes, chopped almonds, spices, fresh fruit juices, a dash of brandy and a glug of sherry. Even though we were always told never to mix our drinks, we think we’ll make an exception this time- it is Christmas, after all.

The shortcrust pastry is completely wheat and gluten free which is great news for anyone with intolerances or following a restrictive diet.
Oast to Host will even personalise them with a handwritten message in pastry , if you want to give them as a gift to someone. We might even get ours to spell out ‘just the one.’
