In March, I visited my relative’s place and we had some very delicious home made kaya for breakfast.
Rosy has been making kaya for her own consumption and for friends who wants them. She’s also set up a simple website that helps promote the kaya. She makes a few extra bottles when she’s making her own supplies for others who might want to get them.
Her modest website: http://rosyskitchen.wordpress.com/
More about Rosy and her Rosy’s Kitchen Kaya:
Based in a home kitchen in Surrey, UK, Rosy’s kaya is made using organic, free-range or premium quality ingredients. For example, the eggs are free range eggs purchased drive away from where they live.
The kaya is hand stirred, not using any machine and made in small batches. It’s like how mums and grandmas make them. No, she doesn’t use a charcoal stove. To comply with health laws, they are bottled in brand new jars. (She has also got her kitchen certified by the health authorities.) So if you want more, she can’t fill them up in your clean up jars. You got to buy a new jar.
The taste and looks test: the texture is thick, creamy and fragrant, the colour is caramel brown and not the green kind. If you are living in the UK, having the kaya with freshly toasted bread and British butter, you will not miss the Yakun or Toastbox kaya toast here in Singapore or those from old style coffee shops in Malaysia.
The recipe is from her mum. The reason she uses free range and organic produce is because they eat organic produce daily for their meals. She wants to have good kaya and not a bottle of kaya that is mass produced products and contain preservatives.
* One 180g jar of Kaya – £3.50
* Three 180g jars of Kaya – £10
Rosy does drop offs in London at times. Some folks order together and have it sent to a particular address. People do gladly pay for postage because it saves them from getting out of their house.
The day we were there, Rosy was going to the post office to post jars of kaya across the English Channel! There are people who are willing to pay for postage that costs more than the cost of the kaya in other parts of Europe!
That’s it. For folks in UK, hope this post will be useful for those of you wanting to get some home made kaya!
