I’ll also be on the Marple Farmers Market on Easter Sunday, and Manchester’s Northern Quarter Royal Wedding Street party on 29th April. To illustrate this, here is Marco Pierre White. Look I’m sorry if you’ve [...]

Awwright Treacle?!

Having lived around Chorlton for nigh on 15 years (minus a brief interlude in the North), I felt like I was selling from my back yard on Saturday at the market. It was a bit like Sesame St, or Albert Square when Eastenders was good. I used to love Eastenders. Awwright treacle! See ya next [...]

So, already planning next year.. selling hot water bottles in Death Valley, and lifeboats in the Congo. Well, it has been difficult to tempt the uninitiated into ice cream in this weather, but those who do, all come back for more. And that’s the name of the game. It’s been nice seeing you. And you.

Spending time on making some interesting new flavours. This is my favourite – Honey & Tahini. Velvety, sweet with a nutty, savoury edge. I’ll be at London’s Brickhouse on the 25th September for the Experimental food society’s annual Specacular, alongside some amazing exhibitors showing off their incredible skills, and culinary weirdness! Exciting and scary. Mainly [...]

Kendal Calling was utterly brilliant and the most fun I’ve ever had. So proud. Now when does that learning curve turn into a beautiful straight line?

Selina and Graham went on the Mongol rally for their honeymoon.. they drove from UK to Mongolia in a clapped out motor. In honour of this daring escapade I created the Ginger’s Comfort edible support pack, consisting of road map, jar of nuts and bolts, a rope and of course a spare tyre.
