BBC Good Food Show Winter in Birmingham

Phew, the BBC Good Food Show Winter 2015 has come and gone, and we survived a hoard of some 80,000 visitors over four days! This was by far the biggest show we’ve ever exhibited at, and a heck of an experience (if not an absolutely exhausting one).

So much chocolate, so little time

Just about recovered after a manic weekend at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas, held at Manchester’s EventCity.

This was our biggest show yet, with a reported 40,000 visitors over four days. The venue was completely transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with festive woodland, live music, and snow machine! All the exhibitors also went to extra effort in decking their stands with Christmas decorations, which really helped with the festive atmosphere. We continued the feeling with a stand full of Continue reading

The goose has got fat – Christmas

The Christmas holidays are nearly here, and we are rounding off 2014 with our usual visit to West Kirby Farmers’ Market on 20th December. Pop down between 9am and 1pm for your last minute Christmas presents, or perhaps to stock up on mince pies. We also have a small number of traditional and jewelled Christmas cakes left, which will be available at the market.

Deck the stall…

With December upon us and Christmas just around the corner, it’s time for a quick announcement regarding Christmas markets.

We have changed up our product range a bit for all markets between now and Christmas. Sadly this means that patisserie is off the menu until the new year, but instead we will have a range of gift ideas and festive treats. This includes our confectionery in new presentation gift tins, boxes of festive biscuits, mince pies, chocolates, and our luxury Christmas cakes. If you can’t make it to a market, or would like to send someone a gift through the post, most of our range is also available on our Online Boutique. Continue reading

Levenshulme Market - 08-11-14Everywhere……… mince pies!

Thank you to all the people who braved the mild monsoon to visit Levenshulme market this weekend. We also had our last visit to Altrincham Market until our Christmas weekend (11-14th December). We’ve really enjoyed being there over the past few months and are definitely looking forwards to a whole long Christmassy weekend in such a lovely atmosphere.

Mince Pies - big & miniWe also had our first mince pies of the season – big and mini, both stuffed with brandy soaked vine fruits. The mini ones were so popular, extra reinforcements had to be made late on Saturday night.

Pre-orders are now being taken for mince pies and Christmas cakes to be collected from any of the December markets in our events calendar. Get in touch for more information and to place your order!

Who ate all the pies?

This poor blog must be feeling pretty neglected. We’ve been too busy making mince pies… lots and lots of mince pies. Our mince pies have been overwhelmingly popular over the past few weeks leading up to Christmas, and as the big day is nearly upon us, it’s your last chance to get hold of Continue reading
