Meg Rivers, story of a true British artisan

Posted on by Beyond Bespoke

The Beyond Bespoke team had a fine food selection of delicious treats delivered to the office very recently and we thought we would share the story of a true British fine food artisan

Meg Rivers’ interest in baking began as a child in the family owned teashop. Always passionate about healthy eating, she later started baking cakes for her children, using only natural ingredients. Friends and neighbours began asking her to bake cakes for them too and requests to send them as gifts overseas gave her the idea to turn her hobby into her career. Soon the kitchen of her home proved insufficient to cope with demand and the business moved to a picturesque bakery in the Warwickshire village of Middle Tysoe.

Over the ensuing years the business continued to grow, gaining awards and plaudits along the way, and now serves thousands of mail order customers worldwide. Following Meg Rivers’ untimely death in January 2001, ownership of the business passed to Julian Day, a family friend and former colleague. Baking continues using Meg Rivers’ original recipes and methods and with the same commitment to producing wholesome and delicious foods. They only use the best available ingredients, locally sourced where possible with no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives. Cakes are made in small batches and every cake is finished and decorated by hand, delivered by post to your door.
