The Blakemere Company was founded by proprietor Amanda Fisher in November 2011 in Chapel Hill NC. Originally from Devon, England, Amanda has founded her business on bringing the taste of her homeland to the American marketplace. Many of the nicest English dishes are freshly made and available only in England. Amanda wants to change all that and bring to you her favorite English treats, carefully made, by hand. All of the products we make are made to heirloom recipes or are Amanda's own creations.
Amanda learned to make Clotted Cream when she was 15 and living in Tavistock, Devon. A friend's mother showed her how in the farmhouse kitchen where she made Clotted Cream on the back of the Aga (a wood-burning stove). Amanda makes her cream today in more modern equipment! A talented self-taught home cook and complete foodie, Amanda also teaches classes at The Cooking School at A Southern Season in Chapel Hill NC.
