You can now sell your homemade food wherever you are in the UK.
Our successful launch in Bristol has shown us that people LOVE to buy homemade food made by local people. Now it’s possible for even more people to be part of the food revolution as home-cooks throughout the United Kingdom can join All About The Cooks and start selling their food to their community.
What is All About the Cooks?
Often described as “Etsy for food”, All About The Cooks makes it easy for home-cooks to sell their food to local people. Claire Ladkin – who founded the platform – says: ‘It’s like having your own website. Our cooks send their customers to their All About The Cooks page to choose, order and pay for their food. They have everything they need all in one place. No more back and forth on social media, WhatsApp groups and so on, or chasing up payments.”
We were recently the runners-up in the 2023 BBC Food & Farming Awards for the category ‘Community Food Champion’, and this video which went out on BBC Morning Live tells our story really well.
Who can join?
Anyone with a talent for cooking is welcome!
Are you the sort of person who loves to make food for others? Now you can make money doing something you love and are good at! Having welcomed hundreds of cooks to the platform, we know there are many ways that our cooks fit their food businesses into their lives.
All our cooks LOVE to cook and get great pleasure from other people’s enjoyment of their food. Some of our cooks take it very seriously and take thousands of pounds per month. Others are very happy to make a few cakes each month and earn a little extra.
Most of our home-cooks do this for all sorts of reasons, and many are actually a combination of several! Which do think you’ll be?
So, how does it work?
We have created a really easy-to-use website which takes the pain out of selling your food. We guide you through the onboarding process, at a pace to suit you, with help and advice available one-to-one or through online guidance and resources.
We’ll help you find your first customers and we’ll be the place you send them to choose, order and pay for their food. It’s just like having your own website but without the hassle and expense. All your orders and messages will come through one source and you’ll know that everything has been paid for upfront. There’s no chasing up cash or checking for bank transfers.
It’s free to join. We only take a small commission from your orders but we give you the first 2 months free of charge to get you settled in. You can find the full details on our ‘Become a Cook’ page.
By joining us, you will spend more time cooking and less on admin. You’ll also get access to our community of like-minded cooks providing tips and support, plus access to our online toolkit with advice on how to promote your business.
