The Taste North East chief executive visits The Little Cheesecake Company based in Ingleby Barwick
The Little Cheesecake Company based in Ingleby Barwick makes beautiful little individual cheesecakes just so that you dont have to agree on one flavour! Their hand-made cheesecakes make a wonderful gift in packs of four or six, and they can even make a wedding cake tower of cheesecakes.
Lisa Howard, who co-owns the company with her sister, said: We come from a family of foodies, who loves lifes little luxuries but who happen to have very different tastes and for reasons we dont understand we have a healthy dose of allergies in the family too.
We built the company because we wanted everyone to be able to have a little piece of heaven on their plate, whatever their taste preferences and even if they suffer from allergies. Thats why our products are gluten-free, and Im challenging myself right now to create a lactose free cheesecake.
Lisa has previously made cheesecakes in wild and spectacular flavours, including a mojito cheesecake for a mexican evening, however she will be bringing her popular and more traditional lemon and ginger, raspberry and white chocolate and vanilla cheesecakes to The Great North Gluten Free Fair at Castlegate Newcastle on Saturday April 27th.

The Great North Gluten Free Fair
The Great North Gluten Free Fair will have around 40 stands, made up of some of the best local and national producers, shops and restaurants that make or sell gluten-free food and drink.
The inaugural event is being sponsored by Newburn Bakehouse by Warburtons, and will showcase its range of free-from products, including brown, white, seeded and fruit loaves, baguettes, wraps, teacakes and muffins.
The Fairs organiser is TASTECLUB, the Club for everyone who makes, serves, sells and loves great north food and drink.
The Fair will prove that gluten-free doesn't mean taste-free, and that everyone can enjoy a wide variety of tasty great north food and drink, even if they follow a gluten-free diet.
