My Story – Lainey’s Handmade Foods
Cooking and baking has always played an important part of family life for me. Over the years I have worked in various friend’s catering companies and have had great fun working alongside some great food loving friends! As life moved along and my children grown up and well on their way, I had more time to set up my own artisan food business, Lainey’s Handmade Foods.
Over the years I have supplied local coffee shops with muffins and chocolate biscuit cake and the one product that always stood out was my chocolate biscuit cake with its rich, dark, intense flavour and fudgy consistency. Based on a recipe I used to make with my mum, and a suggestion by Thomas’s of Foxrock that it could be packaged, the Lainey’s Chocolate Biscuit Cake Bar was developed.
Twomey’s Supervalu Deansgrange had been interested in my products for years so I came up with two new versions of the product suitable for their store, a box of chocolate biscuit cake bites containing 8 pieces and a larger box of four slices which are ideal as a treat or gift and for sharing with friends and family. At Christmas we make an iced gift wrapped chocolate biscuit Christmas cake, a very popular choice for hampers. Last year we added our milk chocolate biscuit cake bar and a carrot cake flapjack to our grab and go range.
We are gradually expanding with great help, enthusiasm and ideas from all the family and now supply Supervalu, Independent and convenience stores as well as coffee shops across Leinster.
I hope you get the opportunity to enjoy my delicious products and I look forward to developing new ones for all our customers!
