Meet Kathryn of Yorkshire Pasta

During a walking holiday with family, climbing up Cat Bells in the Lake District, we discussed the idea of pasta made in UK. The thought didn’t leave us from that point and as soon as we got back home, we started researching. We drove around farm shops, delis and trawled the internet to see what pasta brands are available in the UK. We saw that there was certainly a gap in the market for a British made product. Especially one that wasn’t packed in plastic!

We set out to create a pasta that would be as good as the traditional family made artisan pastas that are imported from Italy. We want to take pasta back to basics, with no compromise on flavour, making pasta slowly and authentically. We source our flour from a local mill, working directly with the miller, ensuring superb quality grain with the desired attributes for our recipe. The flour and water are mixed gently to preserve the proteins in the flour and create a perfect dough. To press the shapes, we have stayed true to tradition and invested in old fashioned bronze dies to achieve superior quality. We then slow dry our pasta at low temperatures which creates the conditions needed to develop flavour. Finally, the pasta is placed in our specially developed 100% recyclable paper bags, sealed without using a plastic tab or solvent glues.

The pandemic was a crazy time to launch. People have been actively seeking out local brands and independent shops, and we have been seeing a great positive response, particularly being plastic-free and selling our bulk bags to zero waste shops which has won us a lot of fans.

Family is the main driver for setting up Yorkshire Pasta and now we have one of our own, it truly is what we dreamed of!

What’s the first restaurant you’re going to visit? The first place you’ll travel to?
I’d love a meal out – anywhere – so long as I can take all of our family with me. I’m looking forward to some fresh sea air, so towards the coast.

Where is your happy place?
In the great outdoors!

What is your lazy go-to / comfort food dish when cooking?
Mac & Cheese with crispy bacon.
