mum decided to open Grandma Junes kiosk here in the heart of Whitby, she
originally decided to retire but after 6 months mum became restless and
decided she would like a new adventure. So back in May 2016 she became
the proud owner of one of the new kiosks here in beautiful Whitby overlooking
the Abbey next to Captain Cook's sailing ship.
doesn't know about this web site we have done it as a surprise for her and
to tell the story of how Grandma Junes kiosk received its name. Family has
always been very important to all of us and this is our story.
June was my mum's mum who sadly passed away many years ago. Our grandma was
so funny, she would always have her little sayings a bit like our mum, she would
get names of food muddled up too, and her Quiche Lorraine was always known as
a Quickie Lorraine. Our Gramps would always come home from work to a hot meal
on the table; he loved her cooking especially her liver and onions with thick
gravy and mashed potatoes with a side helping of cabbage.
Mum would always tell stories about her childhood how she would pinch all the
dripping and have it on toast which she cooked on the open fire then deny it
was her that had eaten it all up to my gramps.
June would always be in the kitchen baking and was famous for her roast dinners
and Yorkshire puddings, her Yorkshire puddings would rise to the top of the
oven, this is something our mum has inherited unfortunately it skipped a generation
with my sister and I as mine really do look like pancakes, they need syrup not
We have always been a
family who loved to cook; growing up mum was always in the kitchen making
her famous beef and vegetable stew with dumplings and homemade meat pies.
She always believed in her vegetable dinners with her thick gravy she would
make with all the juices from the veggies. Every year mum would make our birthday
cakes; she would make two cakes a Victoria sandwich with blackcurrant jam
and a 2 tier chocolate cake, guess which one was my favourite? It’s
also my aunt's favourite too. When we would have a party or go to the zoo
and take a picnic mum would always make this amazing cheese and onion Quiche
and to this day it’s still my favourite.
My sister Leigh just loves mums
Yorkshire puddings and always gets mum to make extra so she can put jam on
them when they go cold, she says it reminds her of our childhood.
amazing how we all remember back to being children and our favourite meals
and traditions this is why our mum wanted to do something different here in
Whitby, she wanted to do that old fashioned hearty meals just like she would
make us when we returned home from school and what our Grandma used to make
her and our Uncle David when they were younger proper hearty meals and homemade
honour of our Grandma June we decided to name the kiosk after her and all
the delicious meals and cakes she had made us over the years, so in a way
our kiosk is dedicated to all the Grandmas out there, we thank you all for
teaching us how to bake and to happy memories.
We hope you have a wonderful
time here in Whitby and can you remember your favourite dishes your Grandmother
used to make you.
