Blackberry Cottage is in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, and was founded by Kate Saunders. Working with the Olympic and Paralympic gold medalists meant food and nutrition was always a hot topic of conversation for Kate, and she always had a passion for cooking and baking. When one of her clients was in despair over her child refusing to eat any vegetables or even much fruit, Kate decided that she would help. She was struck by an idea to make chocolate brownies with spinach, spinach being such a nutrient dense vegetable. She wanted to make the vegetable the biggest ingredient, and after a lot of trial and error came up with a winning recipe that was not only demolished by all children and parents, but left them asking for more. Blackberry Cottage was born!
