YORKSHIRE’S largest hotel group and a Batley-based team of master bakers have joined forces to give guests a better class of biscuit with their morning coffee or tea.
Each of the hotels in the Cedar Court Hotel Group, including one at Ainley Top, Huddersfield, will now be supplied with hand-crafted biscuits made in Yorkshire using only the finest ingredients by the bakers at The Miniature Bakery, which was founded in 2007.
In a departure from the traditional choice of biscuit, The Miniature Bakery offers a “sophisticated and continental” range of quality biscuits, including All Butter Viennese, Chocolate Viennese and Macaroons.
The Miniature Bakery’s biscuits were first supplied to the five-star Cedar Court Grand Hotel & Spa in York. They proved so popular that Cedar Court Hotels decided to roll them out across its four-star properties as well.
Michael Weaver, group executive head chef of Cedar Court Hotels, said: “We wanted to be able to give our guests a more original choice and better class of biscuit to go with their tea and coffee.
“As a fellow member of deliciouslyorkshire, we were initially confident that they would be a good supplier to speak to – but the quality of their biscuits is even higher than we expected and were a real hit with guests at The Grand.
“It’s good not only to be able to provide our guests with a new choice of biscuits but also to continue with our policy of working with local suppliers and using local produce wherever we can.”
Cedar Court Hotels comprises the four star Leeds/Bradford, Wakefield, Huddersfield/Halifax, Harrogate hotels and the five-star Cedar Court Grand Hotel & Spa in York, all of which are easily accessible from motorways, main roads and highways.
