"just like nan used to bake!"
not just a tagline but the motivation behind the very existance of Hunter Valley Cookies.
One morning-tea time Sheryl Machain and her sister Jenny sipped on a cup of tea and nibbled a mass produced bikkie as they reminisced about how their Nan used to bake scrumptious treats in her old wood fuelled stove. "You know we should bake cookies and sell them at the markets" - and they did!
Over fifteen years later Hunter Valley Cookies bakes thousands of cookies per week to supply cafes, coffee lounges, clubs and restaurants .
"We have never compromised the quality of our cookies, still making them by hand using real eggs, butter, sugar and flour".
In keeping with the "family" tradition Hunter Valley Cookies is still a family affair with Sheryl's husband Fred and their daughter Hayley and niece Chloe working in the bakehouse.
