Whenever you visited my Grandmothers home at lunchtime, smells of deliciousness would always be wafting from her kitchen. Although today has seen a surge in healthy options and food is available from all over the world, there was nothing as comforting and warming as knowing all that home-cooked goodness would soon be filling any longing you had for nurturing. We still believe the kitchen is the heart of the home and fundamental to well being, curiosity and cosy home comforts.
In those days the kitchen was a simple place with homemade cupboards using whatever was available to store and stack garden-grown vegetables and homemade jams and pickles.
was the norm and you could even find a bath under the kitchen counter that doubled up as a bathroom when the kitchen was not being used.
One of my Grandmothers favourite dishes was a homemade pie baked in an enamel pan
You could always find plenty of enamelware
lining her pantry door. Home baking was the norm. Everyone knew where her pantry was, delighting in finding some new relish inside or discovering the garden Rhubarb was ready to dip into a cup of sugar to eat raw until scolded not to get a tummy ache.
The pantry always had a little sign on it so that no one would confuse it for the WC even though everyone already knew where it was.
We now love to think that our products help create a little of that nostalgia for homes and relish finding new and exciting designs that make inviting interiors, cosy kitchens with authentic touches reminiscent of that genuine homeliness.
