A BROWNIE connoisseur and cook has achieved her dream by opening a shop at Poulshot Lodge Farm near Devizes to sell her chocolate brownies and home-made cakes.

Jodie Perkins, 26, of Devizes said: "The open day on Saturday was really successful with us selling out all the brownies in just over two hours.

"We had several people travel quite far to get to us, with the furthest being from Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset.

"We raised £200 for the Salisbury District Hospital Stars Appeal and we’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket and all of the local businesses who donated raffle prizes."

She began baking and selling brownies of different flavours in 2013 and now owns her own company called The Gourmet Brownie Kitchen, supplying to businesses up and down the country.

She began trading as The Gourmet Brownie Kitchen in 2013 shops in the area and then ran her own market stall in Trowbridge, Salisbury and Bristol, before deciding to open the shop every Saturday.
