We've learnt over many years that food should be a real experience. and how it can make or break an event - so when we decided to create The Kitchen, Swanscoe, we set ourselves the highest standards, because we know that's what our customers would want.
Our jams, jellies, cordials, sauces and more
It's true, we know exactly what's gone into our food as we spend an entire year looking after our fruit as it grows. We then take time gathering it in and only when it's in season, before sorting it all out by hand. Once that's done it's straight to cooking, and only in traditional small batches - so we can end up working some really long days!
Some of the fruit we use, we forage from the local countryside. We're always exploring the hedgerows for new and exciting finds and we tend to not be disappointed. Foraging is an age old tradition which we would encourage more people to do. as you'll discover tastes and textures that you won't find on the supermarket shelves.
Our jellies are not just good on toast! They are the perfect accompaniment to meat dishes - try them alongside a roast or as an ideal addition to wild game.
Fruit cheeses are a popular side to any cheeseboard, ours are so packed full of fruit that they can be sliced - just like cheese , and they can also be enjoyed sliced in a sandwich, with a ploughman's or with a pie.
The now famous Toffee Apple Syrup has developed somewhat of a cult status amongst those with a sweet tooth. This is one of our most popular products and its uses are as great as your imagination. With a flavour that conjures up memories of bonfire nights past this mouth-wateringly tempting molten syrup can be drizzled on everything... we love it on ice cream, but our customers have used it on everything from gammon roast to their breakfast porridge.
We ventured into wedding & celebration cakes because... who doesn't love cake?! In 2013 we appeared at The National Wedding show in Manchester and showcased our ideas and lovely designs. We had lots of interest and it's just grown from there . . .! We've certainly enjoyed creating cakes that have become an important part of many a special day.
Your wedding day is the day to believe in fairytales and that is exactly what we love to create - whimsical, delicious and beautiful centrepieces straight from your imagination. From rustic romanticism to evoke countryside charm...to enchanted creations to exceed even the sweetest of dreams, we want to help make your wedding extra special and unique - and your day absolutely perfect.
We pride ourselves on being truly 'homemade' in our approach - from unrivalled flavours to truly tickle your tastebuds we use only the freshest eggs from our own hens and all our own homemade fruity jam and jelly fillings - and if you're gluten free...? We're firm belivers that there's a scrumptious gluten free version of everything.
For perfect homemade favours and place settings, why not treat your guests to one of our delicious jams or jellies? Topped with whimsical fabric and tied with a ribbon, we can even create a bespoke label just for your day. Or how about your own blend of apple juice or elderflower cordial for each table?
We can also do bespoke foodie hampers - thank you gifts for your top table or perhaps a treat to be savoured by the new Mr and Mrs?
And last but by no means least, have a look at our hire items: ever so pretty mismatched vintage crockery and glassware with silver teaspoons and cake forks, and our favourite garden games - so much fun!
