We're back!

 Apologies for the radio silence of late, we've been busy setting up our online cheese store L'affinage du Fromage which is already proving really popular.  If you're struggling to find exciting cheese or simply need to send a gift for that difficult to buy for person check out the site. We offer chilled next day delivery to most UK addresses if you place your order before midday.

Of course, Snowdrop Cottage remains really busy too.  You will now find us  trading at Whiteladies Road market every Saturday,  The Frome Independent and The Clevedon Sunday Market each month as well as various shows throughout the year - check out our events page for the latest information.

We now sell a mouth watering range of patisserie which has gone down a storm already, as well as a range of vegetarian 'sausage rolls', you'll have to be quick though, they sell out fast each week!

Always baked fresh the day before each market our pastries have won many awards, most noticeably BGFA 'Best Pie' for the last two years.  However, come and find out for yourself at one of our markets!  Hope to see you soon!

Celebrations at Snowdrop Cottage

It's been super busy at Snowdrop Cottage over the last few weeks.  Wedding and party season is well under way and we've been helping with the festivities!  One of our lovely regular customers who visits our market stalls in Clifton approached us some time ago wanting a little advise about the birthday party she was planning for herself.  Above all it should be relaxing she said, it'll be in the garden for close family and friends.  So, we helped her choose a wonderful cheese selection and freshly baked some large tarts for her to keep her out of the kitchen and enjoying her day.  All went well apparently despite the Snowdrop Cottage vibes for good weather not working particularly well, we'll have to work on those!

As well as parties we've also been caught up with wedding fever.  One of our regular customers approached us to supply cheese for his daughters wedding a few weeks ago and yesterday we helped Rebecca choose her cheese for her wedding 'cake'.  There's always plenty to do planning a wedding and some of the most fun bits include tasting all the food!  We managed to include many of Rebecca's favourites and a few new ones too!  If you'd like us to supply cheese for any of your occasions just drop us a line!

I must confess.....

I've always hankered after having a go at wonderful French Patisserie, my mouth would water on holiday when we passed little chocolatiers and Patisseries with perfect little offerings tempting us at the window.  Of course, I'm no where near their dizzy heights of perfection but we've managed some lovely little tarts of late which we've introduced to Whiteladies Road and The Frome Independent markets which I hope you've enjoyed!

Today we've been baking again and this time we'll have some wonderful Pistachio and Rose meringues to offer the lovely people of The Frome Independent on Sunday.  As well as some rather beautiful White Chocolate and Blackberry Tarts - let us know what you think!

We'll also have some of the wonderful roasted Butternut Bombs, perfect with salad or some steamed vegetables for  a light lunch or an alternative to the dreaded packed lunch!

We'll be in Scott Road tomorrow at Frome in our usual spot, come say hello to Leo and try some new bits and pieces.  I'll be at The Sunday Market in Clevedon, a wonderful market with food, craft and lots more.  See you soon!  Louise x

Ooooo la la

It really was a case of 'now you see us, now you don't when we introduced these little beauties at Whiteladies Road market last week.  They're delicate pots of pate sucree with combinations of white chocolate ganache, fresh raspberries, fresh figs and sumptuous organic dark chocolate.  They certainly went down and storm and this week we'll be introducing two new little tarts - a fresh, zingy lemon tart and a rather lovely fresh berry with creme patisserie.  They're at an introductory special offer at the moment too!   Keep an eye on our instagram account for upto the minute pics www.instagram.com/snowdropcottage

We've also a new range of gluten free pies, same award winning fillings but with a gluten free pastry top!  Sustainability is never far from our thoughts so we're offering them in their own dish which when returned gives money off your next purchase.

New Westcombe cheese alert!

We're so excited to introduce a new cheese to our stall for you to try.  Today on our 'cheese run' we visited Westcombe Dairy in East Somerset to pick up some of their rather lovely cheddar, their tasting notes describe it as:

a deep complex flavour with a mellow lactic tang and long notes of citrus, hazelnut and caramel. The texture is structured and firm, with a smooth breakdown that keeps the flavours lingering on your palate. This cheese is often called a 'five mile Cheddar', as you’re still tasting it five miles down the road!

As if your mouth wasn't already watering you might also like to know that unpasteurised milk from their own herd of Holstein Friesian cows is used to create their cheese which is matured for up to 18months. We'd love you to come and try this beautiful cheese and tell us what you think so come and find us at Whiteladies Road market this Saturday where you'll see it proudly displayed (and me grinning away with cheese happiness!).
