On Friday 19th May, East Coast Bakehouse opened its doors to 20 lucky winners who were treated to an afternoon of baking, tasting and sampling.
The group were welcomed by our Director of Marketing & Innovation and Dragon’s Den Investor, Alison Cowzer. A brief factory tour with brought the group back to our Innovation Centre for some of our yummy biscuits were enjoyed.
Cathy MacKenna, winner of the Great Irish Bake-oo, demonstrated two great biscuits recipes – Chocolate and Vanilla Pinwheel Biscuits and Viennese Whirls, which you can try yourself on our recipes page, and had shared lots of baking tips and hints.
East Coast Bakehouse’s New Product Development Manager, Gemma Flynn, also provided some baking secrets before taking our consumers through a taste test of some biscuits she’s working on.
As one of the lucky winners told us “many thanks for the most enjoyable day on Friday. We really loved today and of course the biscuits. Cathy was the icing on the cake for me. She really knows her subject.”
