We pride ourselves on the quality of everything we serve to our wonderful customers. We want to provide the best experience to everybody who walks through the door. So we are delighted to share that our incredible cake supplier, The Bakehouse – cakes, pies, puds, has now been recognised with a two star Great Taste Award!
Awarded for their delicious Bakewell tarts, the Great Taste Award is a highly respected seal of approval, with entries being put to the taste-test by a panel of over 500 experts. But we knew before the accolade just how wonderful The Bakehouse’s cakes are from the rave reviews they receive from our happy customers.
Eleanor Rastrick, owner of The Bakehouse – cakes, pies, puds, said: “I supply on average 75 cakes a week to cafes around Derbyshire and it’s just me in the kitchen. It feels like a great achievement to get the two star award – 12,634 products entered and only 1,207 were awarded the two star.”
Tracey Wallis, owner of The Pekoe Café, commented: “The cakes are absolutely top-quality and it’s lovely that Eleanor at The Bakehouse is getting the recognition she deserves for that. We all love what she supplies to the café and the reaction the cakes get from staff and customers alike.”
The Bakehouse – cakes, pies, puds was set up by Eleanor, who had a passion for baking since a very young age, after she completed an 18 month apprenticeship in Bakery and Confectionery. She was just 18 when she set up the business four years ago. The Pekoe Café has been serving Eleanor’s cakes for almost two years and would like to congratulate her on the accolade – well deserved!
