  • Overview

    The Food and Drink Networking Club, hosted by Thomson Snell & Passmore and Matthew Sankey of Sankey’s held its latest event on Wednesday 25th May 2022 at Kingdom, a beautiful location based in Penshurst.

    After some introductions between members of the club and some great bubbly, drinks and a delicious sweet potato curry, Alisa Sweeney who heads up the Food and Drink Sector at Thomson Snell & Passmore made the initial introductions. Alisa welcomed everyone for attending and introduced our tasting tables for the evening. Jess Gibson from The TN Card also spoke to our members. The TN Card is a community where independent businesses in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks reward loyalty from their customers by offering discounts and products. Jess has kindly agreed to assist with the running of the Food and Drink Networking Club, expanding the TN Card message to our members. We also heard from the Kingdom family. Toby Cornwell, the son of the owners of Kingdom,explained the three areas of their business; nourish, flourish and celebrate. Kingdom offer delicious locally sourced food in their beautiful woodland café as well as offering yoga, fitness classes and weekly Saturday Park Runs alongside providing the perfect spot for a wedding party or other celebration.

    Alisa then invited our tasting tables to introduce themselves. Firstly, Yvonne Amarandei from Crumbs & Treacle introduced herself. Her bakery has been open for 7 months and is located on Camden Road in Tunbridge Wells. Crumbs & Treacle were finalists in the Taste of Kent Awards in 2022. They offer a range of freshly baked cakes, celebration cakes, brownies cookies and more sweet treats. Yvonne provided samples of her cakes and cookies, which she currently sells directly from her shop and also into a local café. Yvonne is looking for the opportunity to expand into other local cafés also. Yvonne’s treats were a hit, all the members were discussing how delicious they were.

    Next, Karen Reynolds from Kingcott Dairy who are based in Staplehurst, introduced herself and her business. Kingcott Dairy is a small, family run business, which Karen runs with her husband and two sons. Kingcott Dairy produces blue cheese with thanks to their herd of very happy cows, all of which have individual names. Kingcott produce two types of blue cheese; the Kentish Blue and Kingcott Blue. Kingcott Dairy’s cheese is sold at markets as well as in local farm shops across Kent. Karen provided some samples and explained the process of making the cheese which was very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed.

    Our final tasting table was thanks to Eren Cayan from Kape. Kape are the producers of activated nuts, nut butters as well as other products. Eren explained to the members that Kape’s nut butter is unique in flavour; the process of activating and then dehydrating the nuts not only gives the nut butter a cleaner, raw taste but it also allows for the nutrients to be released from the nuts. Kape produce many different types of nut butter including almond, pistachio, cashew, macadamia, pecan and walnut. Kape purchase the nuts directly from farmers and package the nut butters in reusable glass jars and in biodegradable packaging. The samples were absolutely delicious and would be excellent as a staple in the cupboard or as a gift.

    We had a lovely evening and give special thanks to our wonderful tasting tables, Jess from the TN Card and Kingdom. We are looking forward to the next event, if you work in the food and drink industry and would like to come along, please email alisa.sweeney@ts-p.co.uk
