Pat Burbridge, Founder
PATRICIA Burbridge, a former partner of Thailand’s first scuba diving school and a founding member of the Pattaya International Ladies Club, has embarked on a new venture – producing her own line of homemade jams, pickles, chutneys and antipasto dishes under the name of Patricia’s Homemade.
One of her specialties is a chicken liver pâté paired with an onion relish, a hot commodity at the monthly fairs in Bangkok, where she sells her produce (Bangkok Farmers’ Market, International Creators’ Fair and Spring Epicurean Market). Patricia’s Homemade also offers antipasto catering services for small to midsized parties in Bangkok and Pattaya.
Patricia’s sister, Miriam, recently moved from Australia to live permanently in Pattaya to help run the business, and the duo are creating quite a name for themselves. To meet demand they have expanded their kitchen, and if you pop by you’re bound to find them enjoying experimenting with flavours, and creating exotic jams such as “Lemon & Carrot,” “Peach & Passionfruit” and “Pineapple & Guava” – all made with reduced sugar and without preservatives.
