Ladle & Larder was born out of passion and a lot of smiley faces after Christmas 2012! The story begins with me, Carrie Banbury, trying to figure out what to buy friends & family for Christmas. After trawling the web for a number of hours, I settled on the idea of gift hampers but decided with my love for cooking I would make them more personal & create my own tailored hampers. Ladle & Larder's chutneys were born ...
The amount of positive feedback and happy faces I received after Christmas was incredible, so much so, that I was receiving regular requests to jar up some more! It became evident very quickly that I had stumbled across my calling, I had finally found something where I could combine my passion for cooking and turn it into a realistic business proposition. It was time to run with it!!
I carried on working up until April 2013 and then decided to take the leap & dedicate myself full time to Ladle & Larder in May 2013. It has been a lot of hard work, but I haven't looked back once. I absolutely love it!
