Sead was planted at the start of 2018 when I was living in Greece, volunteering for a small refugee organisation called foodKIND. I was part of a tight-knit team cooking and distributing hundreds of hot meals around the city of Patras. During this time, I discovered sesame butter (aka tahini) and the countless ways, both sweet and savoury, this ingredient can be used!
I’m now a self-confessed sesame butter addict, and I’ve been drizzling and slathering it on everything ever since! When I came back to the UK I began creating different sesame butters in my kitchen at home, testing and tasting the recipes on crumpets every morning for breakfast! I then started selling them at markets around Manchester, where I'm based, and down in London- which is where I met Daisy, Sead's Illustrator. Daisy brought Sead to life with her drawings, and at the start of 2019 Sead was launched!
