Create innovative dishes using ice cream to showcase this product in many different ways, from breakfast to cocktails – and everything in between – for the Ice Cream Alliance International Expo and Artisan Food Show.
For example, a breakfast dish was produced with seaweed waffle, Staal smoked salmon, crispy seaweed, avocado and Birch syrup with some stunning Ryeburn Avocado ice cream.

When Chris and Rebecca took over Galtres Lodge in the centre of York, they wanted to increase food sales by improving the menu, streamlining the kitchen operation and using locally-sourced, seasonal produce. They required the following services:
- Menu development
- Menu costings
- Increase food sales
- Develop brigade - staff employment
- Kitchen organisation
- Health and Safety
- Food Hygiene systems
WHAT THE CLIENT SAYS...
We cannot thank Steph enough for her help at Galtres Lodge. As new owners we took over a wonderfully located (but in-need-of-some-attention) hotel and restaurant right in the centre of York, and we knew that the food was one of the first things that needed improvement.
Never in a million years did we think that Steph would be willing to help little old us, but as fate would have it, she did! The change to our menus made an immediate impact to the business, as we could promote local, home-made, fresh, delicious meals, which made us stand out in a sea of chain restaurants in the city centre.
As the quality of the food improved, we were able to increase prices, and now that Steph has costed-out each menu item, we know that we are making a profit on every dish! A year later and we’re making substantially higher food sales, and our feedback is excellent. Steph also helped us develop our team, made our kitchen more organised, and improved our food hygiene and health and safety. We love Steph and cannot recommend her highly enough!
Having established a close working relationship with the Fodder farm shop over the years, Steph has enjoyed working with Head Chef, Mehdi and his fantastic team on a variety of projects including:
- The 10-year celebratory open night
- The 10-year recipe booklet developed by Mehdi and Steph, showcasing local Yorkshire produce, to hand out to customers in the shop and at the 10-year open night.
- A cookery demonstration evening – demonstrating her ‘People’s Banquet’ menu from the BBC’s Great British Menu.
- Ready meals development
- A kids cookery club
- Staff recruitment
WHAT THE CLIENT SAYS...Steph has been a special friend to Fodder since we opened in 2009. Her enthusiasm and great ideas coupled with her ability to become part of the team has meant she has made a fantastic contribution. She is professional and fun, and our team and customers all love her.

It has been a joy to work with Steph on the Crumble It! recipe campaign for the Wensleydale Creamery. Her ability to creatively interpret the brief, her knowledge, expertise and passion, and her flexibility for direction made it a really easy and enjoyable process.
Steph worked with us to create a series of easy-to-follow recipes that fit the brief, looked and tasted amazing and really showed off the product.
