I am so delighted that we have been shortlisted for the Best New Business (non-producer) in the Deliciously Yorkshire Taste Awards 2021!
For so many new and established businesses throughout the UK, the past 18 months have been challenging at best. There have been so many moments when I have questioned why on earth I started this business, not knowing that only 3 weeks after launching, we would be asked to close for the first lockdown. The pressure of opening and closing throughout the following year, felt like starting a new business four times! However, I am still here to tell the tale and I love it so much. Every morning when I walk into the kitchen, I smile and get ready for another day of inspiring, nurturing and always enjoying a new class of enthusiastic bakers & cooks.
And it is affirmation like these awards that really make it worth while! It will be great to join all the fabulous Yorkshire food producers on 10th November in Harrogate for the Awards Ceremony and particularly to meet James Robert's Botanic Request; The Yorkshire Pasta Company; The Larder Club and The Leeds Deli - the other shortlisted companies in the category.
Thanks Deliciously Yorkshire and I'll let you know how it goes!
