Letters in the Attic 2
In September we welcomed ‘Loopy Lisa’ who stood in at short notice when our advertised speaker could not appear.
Lisa has her own business making and selling fudge - initially working from her own kitchen, but now she has a Unit in County Durham which has allowed her to increase production. Her most significant client is Fortnum and Mason - and she explained how that had come about, along with other anecdotes from her fudge making history.
Whilst speaking to us she prepared a batch of Treacle Fudge which we were able to sample before we went on our way.
