It can also be very therapeutic and play a big role in our health.
My name is Gaynor, founder of Spicely Does It. I am the inventor and co-founder of Charcuterie and Deli Making Kits with a LOVE for herbs and spices!
I would love to inspire people back into the kitchen. Knowing where our food comes from and how it is prepared is very empowering. Seasonings are like a painters pallet – splashed with colours, textures and so many variations and blends that can be created. I adore getting messy in the kitchen, glass of wine in my hand and good tunes banging out!
Come with me as I take you on a journey and try something new!
We are nestled in a little nook in the Peak District.
Our office overlooks the River Goyt, trees and fields, where we watch the seasons change, geese migrate and ducklings come and grow!
We would like us all to eat less meat! Sounds a bit bonkers I know but consuming at the same volume at this rate cannot continue forever. We know it’s not always possible for us to pop into our local butcher, farmer or farmshop but if we can, let’s try very hard to do so.
By making our own food, we can source sensibly, learn new skills and have loads of laughs with family time thrown in!
Whether you fancy having a go yourself or think “what a great gift idea” for the foodie friend who has everything – we have it all here!
With our delicious kits you can make Sausages, Burgers, Kebabs as well as cure your own Pastrami, Bacon, Salmon and Chorizo – all in the comfort of your home kitchen.
No fancy gear needed, just a love for good food and a desire to experiment.
Melanie – “The most wonderful element of working here int’ lovely countryside, is that we all have roles that involve the talents we have bubbling inside… and when we explode together - WAAAA! It’s flipping amazing, we take over the world! (well, in our heads we do ????????) . I’m never more satisfied than when I’m filling my desk with props and scissors and my pc with fonts and happy customers!”
June – “I'm an organisation maniac and have a personalised Sergeants whip! What a way to spend my days… I organise to my heart’s content, keeping my Stock ship tight! Once a week Gaynor and I get to spend the day experimenting in the kitchen and taking photos of our culinary creations... I'm in my element!
Gareth – “My role at Spicely consists of managing our social media and email marketing, which as a millennial, I am elated to be a walking, tweeting cliche. Spicely Does It has provided me the space to create freely, where no suggestions are ever cast aside. This has always been encouraged and makes me feel valued. It is safe to say; I am a very happy member of the Spicely crew!"
My mum and I started the company together in 1998. None of the success of the company would be where it is today without her. In 2013 that ruddy cancer took her away very suddenly. She was an energetic, vivacious character that everyone loved dearly. So it is my honour to continue our passion in her honour.
