About the Ingredients & Suppliers we use ..

Ingredients

All our ingredients are organic, fair trade, home grown or the best locally available to us. We don’t use ingredients with any sweeteners, additives, artificial flavourings or colourings.

 

Recycling

images2We are also conscious about our impact on the environment, which is why all our flyer’s are printed on Eco Paper (from FSC Managed Forests), our party invites and business cards are made from 100% recycled material and they are all printed using water based or vegetable oil inks.

We recycle all our waste either through Local Authority schemes or through our own composting, the bin bags we use to take away all the party rubbish are 100% degradable and the party bags are 100% recyclable, we have also sourced a floor for our kitchen made using recycled plastic bottles.

All the disinfectants and anti-bacterial cleaners we use in our cookery school kitchen are environmentally friendly, even our (green) saucepans are made using minerals rather than plastics.

Supporting Campaigns

We feel it is important to know where all our food comes from. As a family, we want to be sure we are eating foods that are good for us and be certain they have come from a well managed source. We are also very keen to ensure we do not throw away food that is often considered unusable. We are therefore keen to support campaigns like Love Food Hate Waste & Chicken Out.
