Gifts celebrating Mrs Bridges’ delicious British foods

Kate Bridges first began to collect her celebrated recipes whilst in service as an under cook in Victorian England. While cooking for London socialites Lady Marjorie and Richard Bellamy, she earned herself the honorary title of Mrs Bridges for her fine culinary skills, and her employers encouraged her to publish her books, Jars of Mrs Bridges Jams and Practical Household Cookery.

The Mrs Bridges range is delightfully traditional and, of course, quintessentially British. Today, Kate’s collection of classic British recipes has been transformed into an impressive selection of high-quality foods perfect for gifting and special occasions. A broad range of traditional preserves and relishes within our Mrs Bridges gift sets, each presented in the signature jar shape exclusive to Mrs Bridges, with a traditional mop cap and bow, adding a touch of luxury to every product.

  • Mrs Bridges’ original cookbook, Practical Household Cookery, upon which her recipes are based, was first published in 1905
  • Mrs Bridges was immortalised in 1970s television series Upstairs Downstairs, played by Angela Baddeley
  • Today, the Mrs Bridges range spans over 150 individual food products
