Dear Nana is an award-winning baker of breads and cakes as well as serving delicious tea with scones. Her secret ingredient is always LOVE.


The Witch is constantly trying out new recipes for her spells, potions and elixirs. Sometimes, she refers to her spell books and often not. The results are always delightful under moonlight.


The Chef is well sought after – he could get a job anywhere. There is no cuisine that he can’t whip up to perfection. From “escargot” (snails) for mains to “profiterole” for dessert, served with excellent coffee.

You may request a particular dish, often, the biggest influence is the rumbles of my own stomach (contact me).
