The Dessert Deli Story...
LAURA AMOS - PASTRY CHEF & BUSINESS OWNER - THE DESSERT DELI
The Dessert Deli was created by Laura Amos in 2008,
Laura was always ambitious and at the age of sixteen, she won ‘Student of the Year’ and the opportunity to work under Michelin starred chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli. This lead to her first full-time job offer, running the pastry sections of Jean-Christophe Novelli’s prestigious, fine-dining restaurants. Having worked through the ranks of several prestigious establishments, from Sous Pastry Chef at The Ivy to Head Pastry Chef at Le Caprice, and Head Chef at the award-winning artisan bakery, Popina. Running a large production team as well as being head of product development, creating products for Highgrove House, Daylesford Organic, and Sharpham Park to name a few. Laura had, by the age of 26, gained priceless experience and expertise and saw a gap in the market for a unique, luxury dessert brand, where ingredients and quality would be paramount and The Dessert Deli was born.
The growth has been organic, thanks to all the loyal customers ‘word of mouth’ and The Dessert Deli’s ethos of using the very best ingredients, plenty of them and lovingly hand making everything sold. This ethos has led to products being stocked in premium food halls over the years, including Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Whole Foods Market and Fortnum & Mason.
Having once-in-a-lifetime opportunities including making tens of thousands of cupcakes for the London Olympics in 2012, publishing The Dessert Deli cookbook, being asked to appear on ITV This Morning with Holly & Phil, making a cake for HRH The Prince of Wales, as Patron of the BFI. As well as working with an array of fantastic corporate clients & local businesses.
