Nikki Gurr says:
It was 2006 that I & Julian took over a 6 acre plot of land near Cranbrook, Kent. Julian worked the land and I used the ingredients for quiches and scotch eggs which we sold in the local farmer markets. The positive feedback we received from our regular customers really gave us the encouragement to grow our business.
I’ve been a chef for over 20 years. I started my career with Albert Roux of Roux Fine Dining in London. From here I worked at many restaurants in London before working on various private yachts. I was on an episode of ITV’s Country Wise Kitchen featuring local producers in Kent.
Our Cranbrook Kitchen is my pride and joy. Perfect for keeping all produce fresh with plenty of space during busy events. With cooking I always start with the basics and this means finding the freshest finest local ingredients. I use ingredients grown on our smallholding but I’m also passionate about sourcing further ingredients locally.
We have expanded into Pop-up Restaurants, as well as planning and Catering Services for Beautiful Weddings, Family Events and Corporate Events. We’ve helped create 100s of successful events and weddings in Kent and East Sussex. We can help you arrange equipment, budget effectively, and talk through problems or concerns you may have. We have some wonderful staff and friends we can call upon to help us in the kitchen and to serve your food. Most of our staff have worked many of our previous weddings and events.
Today our ethos remains the same, to offer good honest local food either grown on our smallholding or sourced from the local Kent and East Sussex countryside.
