The Quirky Cook

Hello and thank you for visiting my website! My name is Kay Hawkins and I am known as The Quirky Cook.

I formed my company in 2008 and have since established myself as a respected artisan food producer. Some of my recipes have gained Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Foods. My products are hand made from scratch, using local ingredients wherever possible and are free from artificial colours and flavourings. Most, do not contain any artificial preservatives or allergens.

Self-taught, with some professional training in Cordon Bleu cuisine, I work from my 5* hygiene-rated home kitchen in Borrowash, Derby.

My passion for handmade produce has evolved from a background of home cooking and baking. From early childhood, I recall memories of simple, yet satisfying wholesome family meals and lots of pickling and preserving! Fresh ingredients from our garden, the hedgerows, orchards and fields would be transformed into something very special.

Over the years, I have been inspired by Graham Kerr the Galloping Gourmet, Delia Smith, Gary Rhodes, Masterchef and Marco Pierre White. I take great pride in the food I produce and its quality. You only get out, what you put in. I can guarantee that once you have tasted it, your expectations will be exceeded…
