Kaz Staples recognised in New Year Honours List for her contribution to the Food Industry.

We were so excited and proud to hear that our AMAZING founder & owner, Kaz was recognised in the New Years Honour’s List for her service to the Food Industry.

Kaz has tirelessly poured her heart and soul into building pure delish from a small seasonal festive cake business in 1997 through to the flourishing enterprise it is today, employing around 30 staff and still handmaking our range of super-premium cereals, snack bars, biscuits/bites and slabs. While pure delish has undergone substantial growth over the past decade, what hasn’t changed is Kaz’s determination to ensure the business holds true to its core values – operating the business with integrity, looking after the health and well-being of staff, leading innovation and pushing the boundaries in their chosen categories.

“It has been an incredible journey so far with a lot of amazing people who have come along for the ride
and played a huge part in growing the business to where it is today.”

Summer Bircher Recipe

 

Thanks to our friends at The Smoothie Bowl, we have this super easy and delicious bircher recipe made using our new Creamy Chia Bircher & Porridge!

For 1 serving you will need:
½ cup pure delish Creamy Chia Bircher & Porridge
¼ grated apple (skin on)
Raspberry Chia Jam (see recipe below)
Coconut or Greek yoghurt
Coconut Water
Nuts & Seeds (whatever you have)
Handful of Berries (blueberries or strawberries)
Shredded Coconut
Freeze-dried Raspberry (optional)

Raspberry Chia Jam
2 cups frozen raspberry
2 TBSP water
1 TBSP honey
3 TBSP chia seeds
(Put all in a pot and boil over medium heat, stirring frequently until mixture thickens. Store in an air tight container in the fridge and will keep for around 2 weeks.)

Method:
Put Creamy Chia Bircher & Porridge and the grated apple in a bowl and cover with coconut water and a lid (could use gladwrap) and place in the fridge for 15mins. Pull out and stir.

In a glass cup/jar begin layering – You can do this in any order and use many alternatives. We started with a dollop of the raspberry chia jam, followed by fresh blueberries, then a dollop of coconut or greek yoghurt, then spoon in bircher mix, another dollop of raspberry Chia Jam, topped with a small amount of nuts & seeds, shredded coconut, fresh Strawberry and crumbled freeze dried raspberry (optional)…. super easy and totally deeelicious!!!
