A year of saying YES….

I decided that after wining The Taste UK that I would say YES to everything food related and boy has that kept me busy!  20140811-161856-58736543.jpg

My YES period started end of March 2014 and with 5 months passing since winning The Taste My commitment to say YES to all food related opportunities Has seen me do many fabulous foodie things ( and my list keeps growing)

And NOW I have a home where I will be cooking from, I have the opportunity to work alongside Chill@TheCowshed in Horwich a luxury Icecream parlour that has a barn and a cowshed renovated for me to do regular pop up restaurants, events, cookery schools, private eventing, tasting and some truly exciting outdoor/indoor events.



We will be holding an exclusive invite only event to start ( it’s that excuse to hold lots of food food parties!) then the official opening night.

After all that excitement I will be opening weekly to start.Building our trading through time and making sure we get it right before we move on – lessons are only lessons if you learn come them.



I want it to be different from what is currently on offer and so it shall:

1. The restaurant will be a fixed set menu only

2. It will be pre booked only

3. An intimate number of covers creating a very unique location with a Twist on the traditional the bit I love the most

We will then be building our trading times to weekend breakfasts and all our exclusive events Cookery schools, private events, tastings and focusing on UK/local producers using our indoor and OUTDOOR space in a way that’s not done normally! I will keep you all posted and truly love hearing your thoughts so post away !


oh and ps with a home PiePost will commence too!

PiePost coming .....
