The Highland Home Cook makes small batches of cakes and bakes made with fresh local and organic ingredients (where possible). We are proud to use local Scottish suppliers, and pleased to 'cook with the seasons'.
We only use fresh and store cupboard ingredients that you would use yourself at home. We do not use chemical colourings, preservatives, fillers, corn syrup, any additives or nasties. We use natural sea salt, organic dairy, and unrefined golden caster sugar in all our recipes; sugar is reduced, compared to commercial bakes. We use Scottish butter, British rapeseed oil, and Greek or Spanish olive oil, where recipes require fats. We do not use palm oil, and actively avoid purchasing any products which do (e.g. peanut butter, vegetarian suet).
We use local suppliers, whose quality ingredients can be traced from farm to plate. The 'food miles' involved in preparing your food is very small compared to supermarket offerings.
How we Work
We are a small, local, family business. Highland Home Cook bread, cakes, bakes, savouries, desserts and special orders are baked freshly before each market.
All our packaging is made from sustainable materials and most of it is compostable.
Highland Home Cook is currently operating in Easter Ross and the Black Isle. If you live outside this area, we may be able to arrange collection of special orders by arrangement. Please contact us
to discuss your requirements.
Our pricing structure aims to be fair and transparent, and we like to encourage and reward regular custom.
If you have any queries, or wish to discuss anything at all, please contact us
