Hi Everyone. I have some news. I have decided to cease trading as 2017 comes to a close.
The endless hard work and time that goes into producing the products is not reflected in the income it generates and as the business has scaled up the harder and more consuming it has become. So, I have made the tough decision to call it a day. I want to create a life that I love not one that I endure and only I can make those positive changes, and this is a huge leap towards that end goal.
Thank you for all your support over the years, it has meant the world to me and I am so grateful for the brilliant moments, life lessons and memories that have come from this crackers journey.
Who would have thought we could win 6 Great Taste Awards from a kitchen in North Ferriby Eh? I am so proud of what we created and the monster it became. It has so much potential in many ways but once I became a factory struggling to produce the same things on repeat, just to keep up, it lost the creativity and that creative product development which fuels my passion in life.
The business will wind down from now on and internet orders will cease in the new year as stock dwindles. It will not be the end for the recipes however. Currently they are protected under the IPO office and copywritten, and are under a pending contract to a new direction so watch this space.
In the mean time the website will stay live and I will use it as a blogging site for recipes as I continue to cook and adore creating food for allergies and dietary requirements.
I am also off on Holiday for a family Christmas to recuperate.The Christmas Delivery cut off date for guaranteed delivery 2017 is midnight on the 15th December. Any orders placed after the 15th December will have to be posted upon our return to the UK on the 6th January. Thanks for understanding and I hope you all have a brilliant Christmas and New Year
Thank also for your past and present support. I will miss you all
I am a trained chef who learned to cook as soon as my mum could sit me up at the work tops.
Inspired by Yorkshire I am an advocate of shopping local and supporting local trade and craft. I was also born with many allergies causing me to be amongst other things Diary Free and Gluten free. So I’ve spent a lot of years living with dietary restrictions and learning to make treats that taste great. In my range of preserves, pickles, chutneys, jams, cooks ingredients, flavored oils and dressings I hope to be able to share my years of experience catering for dietary requirements and share with you all the rather yummy products I make using locally sourced ingredients and local suppliers.
Inspired by my mum.
True to my roots of learning to cook as a child in my family kitchen, I also don’t believe in adding any funny stuff. My mum didn’t feed it to me, so I won’t feed it to you.
