I love homewares, and in particular, kitchenware!  I find I cook better with lovely pots and pans and surrounded by all the latest and greatest gadgets.  To be able to combine the need to make a living with the joy of using top quality kitchenware is something I didn’t even realise was possible!  Not only have I uncovered a brand new enthusiasm for cooking, baking and feeding the family, but I’m spreading that enthusiasm to other people.

Stay tuned for more …
