A little big about me…

Emily Shaw, Head Honcho, Franke & Co.

Growing increasingly restless with my life on the corporate merry-go-round, I founded Franke & Co. in 2014 as an outlet for my greatest passions- food, events, styling and creating.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that parties and special events are my thing. I just love playing hostess and delighting my guests with unique tastes and experiences.

I’m also an “ideas man” always work on my next big idea, project or scheme. I love making things whether it be sewing, crafting or cooking. I take great pleasure in making things from scratch, and honouring the traditions of yesteryear.

Food and cooking has always been so exciting and life-giving for me. The entire process of finding a perfect recipe, selecting the best, freshest ingredients, and then producing something beautiful and delicious is just so pleasurable for me.

I dream of one day opening a tea house, guest house, function venue, restaurant, craft workshop, cooking school and so many other wonderful things. But in the meantime I will just dream, play, create and write. I hope you enjoy my blog!
