In my tenth episode I’m joined by Matthew Grossett, the owner of Walnuts and Honey, a black-owned micro-bakery based in South Norwood, London.
Matthew specialises in exotic flavour combinations and luxury vegan/gluten-free bakes including eye-catching swirled buttercream cupcakes (which I’m a huge fan of). He also takes orders for birthday and occasion cakes each week.
We touched on Matthew's love of sweet treats and how after a period travelling he realised he no longer wanted to work in an office. He started out by taking his bakes to markets, before finding a shop that fit the bill.
After four years, Walnuts and Honey is going from strength to strength. With Matthew as the sole employee in the shop (cake maker, front of house and coffee making), he considers other local business owners as his colleagues.
In the future he is hoping to grow the business, adding an additional premises for more baking.
