Yorkshire Show 2017 and Lottie Shaw

I have gone to the Yorkshire Show since I was a child. Skipping a day from school was even better. I still love to go and this year had 2 part days there. The weather could not have been any more extreme .Wellingtons and oil skin coat the first day, dressed more like I was going out in the middle of winter. On the second day with short sleeves and summer clothes.

 It is always nice to see Lottie Shaw and I found her in the Food Hall. She makes the most amazing biscuits and gingerbread . I have watched her business grow over the years. She told me they are moving to bigger premises. The growth of her business I am sure is due to the taste, quality and fair pricing but you cant forget the friendly disposition that Lottie eludes. She has thought everything through so well even down to the packaging . I always remember the first time I met her at a large Welcome to Yorkshire event ,she had just started and was handing out biscuits to everyone. For a very small business at the time this was truly very generous.

This is what Lottie has to say ...

Lottie Shaw’s products are based on a one hundred year old family passion for baking which has seen her take up the reins as the fourth generation of her family to run the Yorkshire-based bakery which started with her great aunts and her grandfather and has passed down the generations, through her father, to herself and her husband. About
Based on traditional family recipes handed down by Great Grandma, Lottie Shaw’s goodies are to be found in the best farm shops, stately homes and traditional delicatessens throughout the country and have already been recognised with a host of awards and by tv chefs including Brian Turner and Paul Hollywood who have featured them on their television programmes. 
 Beautifully baked and hand packaged with love and style, at the heart of the Lottie Shaw’s brand is a passion for quality and authentic baking with Lottie Shaw’s traditional and wonderfully sticky Seriously Good Yorkshire Parkin the star of the range. 
  ” Like many busy Mums it’s always a challenge juggling work and home, but I am passionate about bringing my family traditions to the table and we have grown beyond my wildest dreams. I hope you can taste the love and pride of past generations with every mouthful!”.
