MEET YOUR BAKER
Welcome to my page. I am Kate.
I was born between Stratford Upon on Avon and the Cotswold's, but call Cornwall home.
I am fortunate to have a family who not only took their love of cooking and baking into careers, but who also archives and preserves our families history. This, with my upbringing, has allowed me to continue our generational traditions with traditional baked goods synonymous with Britain from cakes, to pies. Cookies to breads.
Everything I bake, make and create is not just what I have been taught, but also what I and all my family, as well as ancestors grew up with.
For 6 years, Mitch and I travelled the UK with our children so they too could experience my heritage, family and country. During this time, we drew up the plans to build Moore Cajun Smokehouse, Mitch being Cajun and 3rd generation cook.
We returned to Texas in 2017, and in January 2020, having moved to an entirely new town we now call home, we decided to test Mitch's Cajun food and my British desserts against the public.
This is where we have grown and thrived.
Both Moore Cajun Smokehouse and Miss Kates Place has grew alongside each other becoming a blended cultural entity, where he brings the heat, and I bring the sweet.
WAIT! CAJUN AND BRITISH? HOW?
He's Cajun. I'm British.
The beauty about both of our upbringings are not only how diverse they are from each other, but how one balances the other.
As our slogan says, "he brings the heat, while she brings the sweet."
Mitch is continuing his families traditions and passions for cooking and operating restaurants, with the recipes passed down to him.
And I am continuing my families traditions and passions for baking and operating kitchens, with the recipes passed down to me. This is how we met :-)
SO WHAT'S THE PLAN?
We leased a shop at the Affordable Storage on FM179 in Wolfforth.
We have a 26ft Commercial Kitchen on wheels arriving in October. So we will remain at the Wolfforth Farmers Market every Saturday until November.
This shop will allow Mitch to pull the truck in and out of the shop to serve with dining space inside.
As we progress and grow, the interior will slowly morph into my British Tea Room.
For the time being, as we build up, I will be serving my bakes off our mobile restaurant.
