Our Story

How it all began...

Rachel Lucas has been cooking professionally for almost 30 years in one way or another...from owning a delicatessen and sandwich shop to working as a Head Chef in several restaurants with dinner party and wedding catering in between! In 2004, she set up a small wholesale business - The Blue Angel Bakery - supplying local coffee shops, restaurants and event caterers with handmade cakes and desserts as well as running a stall on the monthly Farmer's Market in her hometown. So many customers began to ask where they could buy her cakes - and in particular the brownies - all year round, that the idea for a new business was born.

The way we think...

We just love food. Reading about it, talking about it and most of all, eating it. Rachel even dreams about it! We believe that good food is a life-enhancer...so much more than simple nourishment. We think that food is at its best when it's real...prepared from scratch and using great ingredients. Our gorgeous brownies are made with real British butter, local free-range eggs, fresh orange zest and other things that your great-grandmother would recognise as food. No preservatives, no artificial additives of any kind. We only bake and sell things we love to eat ourselves...and we believe that they are very special.

A family tradition...

Baking professionally runs in the blood at Sugar Moon. Rachel's great-great-grandfather, Robert Adam Took, started the family bakery in 1870 (here he is, on the left of the photograph, outside his shop in 1884) and both her great-grandfather and her grandad were award-winning master bakers too. She inherited her grandfather's collection of bakeware, utensils, vintage patisserie manuals and handwritten bakery notebooks and finds great inspiration in these links with her heritage. Although the bakehouse and shop were sold in the late 1970's, the passion, tradition and commitment continues with Sugar Moon....
