As the nominated UK importer of Greenwheat Freekeh, we were delighted to see Saliha Mahmood-Ahmed win the MasterChef Finals with her Kashmiri-style sous-vide duck breast, with crispy duck skin, Freekeh spiced with dried barberries, walnuts and coriander, cherry chutney and a duck and cherry sauce. 

Saliha's winning meal was praised by Judge Gregg Wallace as: "East meets West" and "simply stunning - beautiful art on a plate" and according to John Torode the dish was "clean, crisp, refined and beautiful".

Freekeh is a highly nutritious grain, rich in prebiotic properties, high in fibre, high in protein and low on the Glycemic Index; perfect for Saliha, as she combines her love of cooking with her medical career – aiming to help people with special dietary conditions find their ideal foods.
The popularity of Freekeh continues to grow and this recognition on such a high-profile programme is now encouraging more and more people to add this delicious grain to their regular shopping list!

Artisan Grains offers Freekeh in three different formats: Cracked, Wholegrain and Ready-To-Eat, in a microwaveable pouch.
