Izzy, Wizzy, Let’s get busy!

Another weekend and TWO new places for us!

Our first trip will be to this year’s Tatton Park Foodies Festival. This takes places over three days (Friday 17th-Sunday 19th) and is a huge festival with all the usual suspects, including great local produce, celebrity chefs and tons to see and do. Set in beautiful Tatton Park, this promises to be the biggest festival we have attended so far, and hopefully the best one yet! Continue reading Izzy, Wizzy, Let’s get busy!

Egg-citing events ahead

Thank you to everyone who visited us at West Kirby Farmers’ Market last Saturday, it was great to see the market so busy! There were lots of Easter gifts being purchased – hope everyone enjoys them next weekend.

With the Sun finally making an appearance, we welcomed two new summery additions to our marshmallow range – mango & passion fruit, and mandarin & Cointreau. As always our mallows are made with only natural ingredients, and the colour comes from real fruit juices and purees. It was funny to watch what started out as a bright orange mandarin mixture whip up to an almost pure white mallow. Just to confuse you (and us!).

The Golden Goose

It’s almost the end of the month, and time for West Kirby Farmers’ Market – see this month’s newsletter here.

Alongside our usual confectionery, we will have some special ideas for Mother’s Day on 15th March. We will also be presenting a sneak preview of our Easter range, which you will be able to pre-order for collection at the next market, or at the Hoylake Food Fair on the following Sunday (8th March).  You can also now find our Easter range on our Online Boutique. If you would like to reserve anything to pick up at the market this Saturday, please let us know.

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.

Marshmallow ghost army?

West Kirby Farmers’ Market took a spooky turn this past Saturday! As you can see from the snaps below, we went a little mad with the Hallowe’en theme……

Our bat mascot was very much admired by the market goers, so much so he had to take refuge in an apron!

Here…There…Somewhere

"Valencia" patisserieDouble duty this past weekend – Saturday at West Kirby Farmers’ Market, and Sunday at the first Wilmslow & Alderley Edge Food and Drink Festival.

 

We also introduced our new “Valencia” patisserie, available for the first time at West Kirby Farmers’ Market – Dark chocolate mousse, orange jam, toasted almond creme brûlée on a Breton shortbread. From the comments on the day and afterwards, they were certainly a hit and will have to return again very soon!

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 Who ate all the pies?
