Curry with Love is a mother & daughter creation
I remember clearly as a little girl, spending hours in the kitchen, cooking with my mum. It was here that I learned the importance of cooking from scratch. Not only was it healthy and tasty, but it was the love that went into making the dish, that made it so special!
So naturally, in 2011 when I fancied a career change, my mum was the first person I went to for inspiration, and together ‘Curry with Love’ was created. Why curry? It’s simple ... We both have a real passion for it. We love the ground spices that can be hand blended to create unique flavours, the whole spices that are added to ensure depth of flavour and best of all. The smell of those aromatic spices bubbling away on the stove is hard to beat. We knew that making an authentic curry from scratch could take hours and we knew there must be an easier way. So we set about trying to create a unique curry kit and after many, many hours in the Curry with Love kitchen, I think we cracked it!
Seven Years on...
Over the past 7 years, mum and I have increased our product range no end. Our customer base continues to grow, and our Curry Kits are now shipped worldwide.
In 2016, we decided that it was time we moved production and internet sales out of our respective homes. We took over the Old Post Office in Ixworth High Street, and when we opened up the space, we realised that we could start to source other items that would complement our Curry Kits.
We took a trip to India and sourced some beautiful, fair trade products. We make sure that everything we source and stock is made under ethical conditions. As a result, we sell beautiful Indian made products at a fair price, but always with quality in mind. Come to see us and see what delights you can find.
A New Chapter began in June 2018...
With Ixworth keeping Mum and I busy, sister Amy decided that she would like to opportunity to manage her own shop somewhere closer to where she lived. The search began for the perfect location. In April 2018, we found it.
Swaffham holds a lot of dear memories for our family. My dad used to trade for many years on the market selling jewellery, and later optical wear. Us children would help dad on a Saturday in return for wages (which I then used to spend in the little stationery shop!)
We love the fact that Swaffham is full of independent business, a lot of which have been trading for many years. On June 2nd we opened our shop to the people of Swaffham, and have been warmly welcomed by locals, visitors and other business owners.
So if you are ever passing, feel free to pop in for a browse, to stock up on our curry kits, or to pick up an unusual gift, the proceeds of which, go into supporting local projects in the area they are skilfully made.
