The Ilkley Kitchen are overjoyed to be winners of the prestigious 3 Star Great Taste Award for our Orange and Almond Cake.
The first time this bake came out of the oven we had a feeling that there was something special about it. It was an exciting moment - discovering something unique, delicious, flour free and fat free too.
It was a labour of love to develop that initial bake and we are thrilled that its excellence has been recognised with a 3 Star Great Taste Award. Out of 12,772 entries only 208 products achieved a 3 star this year! Thank you Great Taste for having exceptional taste in cake!
We are proud that we’ve created this cake and we can’t wait to share with you.
With a shared passion for food, long standing backgrounds in the food industry and 9 hungry children between them, Marcella and Tina’s friendship centred around the kitchen - cooking together for children, family and gatherings of friends. Sharing recipes, stories, food and happy times.
As time moved on and children moved out, we found more time for ourselves and decided to turn our love of food into a business, launching The Ilkley Kitchen in January 2016.
We soon had a loyal customer base enjoying our food, either bought from our stall at the Ilkley Real Food Market or eaten in local cafés and restaurants. As word spread, demand grew for our fully-serviced event catering too.
We won our first Great Taste Award in 2017 and haven’t looked back since. Whether delivering food direct to customers, supplying local food businesses or cooking for clients in their homes, nothing gives us more satisfaction than bringing joy to our customers with delicious, creative and interesting food, all cooked with high quality and locally sourced ingredients.
We can cater for small gatherings, parties or even a special family dinner. Click below for a flavour of what we can make for you…
