About us - Our Boys
They were little blond-haired poppets when they first turned up on the original website. One’s now studying Maths and Astrophysics. Powered by occasional boxes of brownies from home, of course. The other is destined/desperate to play the lead in the next Marvel Avengers movie. He also makes an amazing cupcake, so may be on for a future heading up the Brownie Barn product development unit. We’ll keep you posted. You probably spotted them supporting us at events. There’ll probably be less of that now for a bit. They’re probably embarrassed that we still included them here.
About Us - Team Gower Cottage Brownies
When it was just me baking in the kitchen at home, I had occasional helpers, the brownie elves, when things got manic. We now have a team of 6, with additional elves at Christmas time. They’re not crammed in the kitchen at home (I don’t think “Elf & Safety” would like that) but in our new Brownie Barns a couple of miles from the cottage. Even though there’s more of us, and we’re in the Barns now, we’re still baking pretty much the same recipe that I started with. We’re using the same ingredients, much of it coming from suppliers local to us here in Wales, from the butter to the free-range eggs. We do buy our chocolate from Belgium because we still think it’s the best. Bar none. Got to give the Belgians credit for something more than just cracking beer and Tintin The only thing I’ve changed over the years is adjusting the baking time as the ovens have got bigger. You can tell the story of how we’ve grown through the ovens we’ve gone through!
About us - This is Rob.
AKA the Brownie Bitch
You’ve met him at shows too.Probably holding the fort while I’ve wandered off to chat, possibly stalk someone. Anyway, these days Rob’s in charge of logistics (he gets to drive the Landy to make some of our deliveries), technical and general sorting of stuff. Basically, making sure that you get what you want when you want it. Completely indispensable then. Just don’t tell him I said so.
