Hilda is a farmer’s daughter, born and raised on a dairy farm where growing the family food was the norm. In between helping with herds, Hilda qualified as an architectural technologist and worked for major corporate clients. With marriage and motherhood, Hilda has returned to her other love - brewing and baking from her Summerhill home. Her cooking has become the award winning artisan food range Hilda’s Homemades.
Growing and sourcing local ingredients Hilda devises gorgeous fresh twists to traditional Irish staples- tangy lemon marmalade with beech leaf noyau, delicious lemon & spiced wild elderberry vodka marmalade, damson chutney, aromatic & spiced plum chutney to name just a few. As glazes, dips or appetisers or just all you need for your more modern yummy lunch or afternoon tea, Hilda’s Homemades add rich, quality flavours to any store cupboard.
Stocked in selected cafes, shops and markets, Hilda’s hampers and gift boxes are also hugely popular with foodies.
