Lancashire-based stove manufacturer Esse has recruited Michelin-trained pastry chef Dominique Ashford to its product development and demonstration team.

Ashford was formerly head pastry chef at the Houses of Parliament, and also created “stunning desserts with unusual flavour combinations” for Aiden Byrne at Manchester House.

In her new role at Esse, Ashford will work on new product development and testing, as well as perform cookery demonstrations and host classes.

Esse said Ashford discovered the brand after stopping by its factory café in Barnoldswick during a bike ride, with the pastry chef returning to do a cookery demonstration a few weeks later.

“I’m used to working with large capacity commercial ovens and when I saw the quality of the cakes and loaves emerging from these amazing ovens, I had to find out more about them,” said Ashford.

Esse has installed a new 990 ELX electric range cooker in Ashford’s home, where she will develop new dessert recipes for the Esse café and to share on the Esse website.
