From 5 o’clock nibbles, to a convenient catering solution
The Cheese Puff story started with a group of friends, 5 o’clock drinks and the need for something delicious to munch on while sharing great company and conversation. The Gang of Five, as my mum and her friends were otherwise known, paired these delicious cheese puffs with gin and tonics, chardonnay and a bit of cheeky gossip.
Before too long, these moreish little puffs became a staple at every social gathering, be it a family barbecue, a cocktail party, or any birthday or anniversary celebration. My mum began to make them for friends, friends of friends and even supplied to a few caterers, her little side business was a roaring hit!
In 2011, my incredible mum passed away, but not without leaving me a handwritten copy of her top-secret recipe, the Classic Three Cheese Puff. Despite lots of requests from family and friends to start making them for parties and events, I couldn’t bring myself to take out her recipe and give it a crack. Until one day in 2015 when my best friend asked me to make a batch for my Goddaughter’s christening party. What better way to honour her special day than with a party food that was for me synonymous with cherished memories and love. Familiar smiles splashed across her guests’ faces as they devoured the puffs, followed by numerous requests for the recipe. It was on this day that Cheese Puffs were reborn and that I first decided to share my love of these simple, delicious little mouthfuls of joy with the world.
