The provenance of the ingredients I use is very important: I want to use the best ingredients so that my products taste great, but I also want to make sure that, where I can, I am supporting both local and ethical businesses and that I am reducing food miles.
To this end, I use eggs from our own free range hens (Maude and the Gang) together with locally produced flours, organic cream and butter. I also source my tea from a local tea and coffee company. The majority of my other ingredients have been sourced from an independent wholefood co-operative committed to ethical business. I hope to be using our own Spotty Dog honey in the recipes soon!
