A THRIV­ING young en­tre­pre­neur has had her buisi­ness nom­i­nated in the Buck­ing­hamshire Food and Drink Awards 2016.

Gemma Sisson, from Ger­rards Cross, runs bak­ing com­pany the Kitchen Mixer, and has been nom­i­nated for In­de­pen­dent Food Re­tailer or Pro­ducer of the Year.

She said: “2016 has started with a bang, hav­ing been nom­i­nated for this award. Be­ing thought of as one of Buck­ing­hamshire’s finest pro­duc­ers doesn’t come lightly.

“For me this is an ac­com­plish­ment in it­self, es­pe­cially when other great in­de­pen­dent pro­duc­ers are nom­i­nated within the cat­e­gory.

“Bak­ing in the kitchen is so re­ward­ing when peo­ple com­pli­ment the prod­ucts at lo­cal mar­kets or make the time to email you. It also creates a more per­sonal in­ter­face which you do not get in the su­per­mar­ket.

“Thank you to the cus­tomers who con­tinue to buy and en­joy their cakes. It is also fan­tas­tic to have the sup­port of other lo­cals busi­nesses. For all my 26 years I have lived in Ger­rards Cross, I would con­sider my­self a true lo­cal pro­ducer., from which hav­ing the sup­port of the com­mu­nity buy­ing my prod­ucts has en­abled my busi­ness to bloom.”

She added: “Here is to an ex­cit­ing time ahead – watch this cake busi­ness rise.”

Vot­ing is open un­til May 9.
