Stylish Meets Delicious!
I've been a fan of baking from a very young age - Mum taught me all the basics and I baked regularly at the weekends as a child and into my teens.
This grew into a lifelong love of food, cooking and eating – I especially enjoy making puddings and usually menu plan from the end backwards!
Years ago I had the idea to have a little cottage industry making puddings for customers to pass off as their own, for those people who didn't have the time or inclination to bake for themselves. The idea came to fruition years later in 2011 when The Pudding Kitchen was born!
Initially I specifically made puddings but latterly the range has expanded to include many different cakes and I am now proud to supply local cafes and bistros on a weekly basis as well as private customers who may just want a one off cake! One of the highlights of my month is a regular stall at Midsomer Norton Farmers’ Market where I sell by the portion.
With this growth in business I outgrew my home kitchen and in 2017 moved into a “grown-up” kitchen unit in the village, and by way of marking the seventh "birthday" of The Pudding Kitchen, I am delighted to have partnered with a super talented young design student who has created the new, updated look for The Pudding Kitchen, and revamped the logo to match! I am thrilled with the drawings she has produced of some of my creations, and has totally captured the essence of the look and style I had envisaged. Should you be interested in more of Harriet's work you can follow her on Instagram at hc.designed. Also massive kudos and thanks for the web build and design to the Technical Department of The Pudding Kitchen, aka Dad!
