On Food for Thought I like to feature a variety of food businesses, this means chatting to not just the people who run cafes and restaurants but also people who run their cookery businesses straight from their kitchen. That’s certainly the case for Baked by Eileen who makes homemade cakes using local and seasonal produce.
Eileen makes her cakes for the local farmers market in Lincoln and supplies some of the independent cafes around the city. It’s only become a recent venture for Eileen and she’s surprised that her business is so popular after it just started off “as a germ of an idea”.
Also on this week’s show I chat to Eddy Gadd from the Lincolnshire Beekeepers Association about looking after bees.
I’ve not been enjoying the bees inviting themselves into my house via open windows during the recent sunny weather, however, it might have got you thinking about looking after bees properly. In that case Eddy has plenty of advice for people starting to look after bees as well as explains the benefits of looking after bees.
