The talented Tabatha's brainchild, Rockabilly Kitchen is 2 years old. She likes to say it's the home of old fashioned, style, taste and fun. It started out being called Tabby's Treats, when she used to do the market circuit for four years making just cupcakes and cookies. She's also made beeswax, honey and olive oil hand cream (8 years ago) in this timeframe.
This lady has the iron will of a champion to succeed, housed in the soft glove of the lovely woman that she is. She also doubles as a 'face painter' in many of the markets as well. I guess you could say she personifies the woman of the Rockabilly era that she loves. She cooks, sews and bakes and is artistic to boot.
Don't judge her by the Facebook page she keeps as Tabatha is not shy about mentioning that she has dyslexia, a general term for disorders that involve difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, but do not affect general intelligence. To have got thus far is a testament to her resolve and strength of character in itself so kudos to her.
You'll find a delicious American style roast beef in a bun at Tabatha's stall. She cooks the roast for 17 hours, an old recipe she uses and you could say that's the yardstick for all her recipes. They're old and authentic just the way they used to be made.
I love her lemon slice that tastes as though it has condensed milk in it, but it doesn't. It's very moreish if you like something a little tart. She also has brownies, bounty, M&M, jelly and raspberry slices. She makes jams, lemon curd, boiled lollies and of course sews 50s influenced aprons which she has for sale as well. Check her out at her next market and 'like' her page so you know where she's going to be next.
