It seems Bethany Haresign was destined to spend her life around food from the beginning. Her mother Hilary Haresign was herself a chef before opening her specialist fashion boutique, Snooty Frox of Harrogate. She introduced her daughter to cooking at an early age and Beth was making jam tarts by the time she was three. Beth’s great grandma had a baker’s shop in Hunslet, Leeds, and Beth’s grandma owned a restaurant. So Beth’s love of food and cooking is part of her DNA.
Bethany trained at Thomas Danby College, Leeds and won the title student of the year two years running. She then spent a period training with Michel Roux at the Waterside Inn in Bray where she cooked for the Queen as well as many celebrities. She has also worked with the award-winning chef Andrew Pern at the Star Inn, Harome.
Bethany makes everything from scratch using only the best ingredients which are always from Yorkshire or as near to Yorkshire as possible. She prides herself on making customers happy and providing them with the “wow” factor. Taste, flavour and presentation are all really important, as is the challenge to constantly bring something new to the table.
