Kookery StoryI started with a black marker, paper, a cup of tea and a little bubbles of things I love, along with the knowledge that I wanted to make my own product.
Our first design 'Too Many Cookbooks not enough dinners' was the first ever design. I used a vintage knife, fork and spoon gathered on one of my many vintage hunting trips.
And then played in my notebook with words, to finally bring this design to life.
From those bubbles of work and much loved pasttimes, I created a tangible product, from the things I love.
And here it is, Kookery, Quirk your kitchen!
We love quirky, we live for puns, love a little fun and absolutely love it when you see yourself or a friend in our quotes.
We handcraft each quote from an idea and combine it with coffee, tea, wine or home brew, lots of scribbling notes, and our friend Evernote!
Our designs come from pieces of kitchenalia, photographed and then rendered in silhouette, showing off their bold vintage shapes. Or they are hand drawn.
We love sharing our love of food, coffee, baking, vintage and love that we have been able to build a little community with the people that love Kookery too.
My favourite part of being the designer is to see it grow from my own head into a laugh, giggle and smile on another person, the joy of gift giving is an integral part of who I am.
My grandma loved to give, my Mum loves to give and for me, Kookery creates the perfect functional beautiful gift for people who want to share smiles with their friends and family.
I absolutely love that you guys are here, and with your support I can say, I make a living in hunting for vintage pieces and creating fun foodie puns.
Wow, so dreams can come true!
