All good things come to an end

Wow, what a rollercoaster of a few weeks!

For those of you who don’t yet know, the week before last I had to reluctantly shut the doors for the final time on my much-loved little cafe creation – Baked Salt at The Loughborough Cafe.

The building had been sold and alas, I can’t stay on…

Heart, soul & flour

I’ve completely poured myself – heart, soul and flour! – into this elegant corner of SW9 over the past 18 months and so was prepared for the sadness as I packed up all my kit and caboodle.

What I wasn’t prepared for however, was the phenomenal support that has come from my regulars and other locals!

It’s been overwhelming and heart-warmingly wonderful to be on the receiving end of such kindness and warmth.

I’ve been so lucky to be welcomed into this close-knit community and to meet so many new like-minded foodie friends.

And – as promised – I’ll be keeping in touch with everyone who has joined my mailing list with news on what’s next for Baked Salt

Onwards & upwards

There are so many things I’m looking forward to exploring now that I’m a free spirit.

First and foremost I can spend more time on my private catering business again – cooking for others’ special occasions is something I’ll never get bored of!

Plus, I’m already on the lookout for local venues and potential collaborators for some exciting Baked Salt pop-up opportunities… and who knows, maybe even the perfect café location will re-appear to me.

But most importantly, for right now, I’m looking forward to some good old-fashioned wintery rest and hibernation – to do what we all need to do at this time of year: recharge, re-group and re-energise, ready for new exciting things in 2017.

So, thank you all for the continued support. It really is so appreciated, and I look forward to sharing my new plans and news as it happens.

Don’t be a stranger

Please do keep in touch… I’ve streamlined my social media accounts, so be sure to link up with me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for day-to-day Baked Salt love.

And don’t forget – if you ever want some catering advice, a quote or just a foodie chat – drop me an email, or give me a ring. I’d love to hear from you…

Until next time, wishing you all and your families a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.
