meet the potters


Georgia, Founder & CEO

I am passionate about using top quality, local, seasonal ingredients and making sure all our food is handmade fresh from scratch.  

The idea for POTAGE came about in 2012 on a walk in Hyde Park with my brother when we stopped for a hot winter stew and chunk of bread. I spent all my evenings and weekends over the following year testing recipes, collecting packaging samples, thinking about logistics and slowly creating a business.

 Sophie, Operations & Marketing Manager

I have always been interested in working in the food industry as well as being a lover of all things edible. I studied at Newcastle University and went on to do a ski season as a chalet cook in Meribel. I enjoy seeing the whole production line from start to finish, especially when we hear wonderful feedback. Soon we will be known for the "best brownies in London" as we have been told by most of our customers.

 

 

Denisa, Kitchen Manager

Originally from Slovakia, Denisa moved to London just over 3 years ago. When she's not working she loves shopping, walking in parks and meeting friends. Denisa's favourite pot is the Fresh Salmon & Sesame Noodle Salad, she also loves pasta with homemade pesto.

Silvia, Kitchen Assistant

Originally from Ecuador Silvia lives with her brother. She loves to shop on the infamous Oxford Street, seeing London from the river/boat cruises and taking photos of all the national
landmarks.

Hernan, Kitchen Assistant

Originally from Argentina. A music fanatic who has been playing since he was 12 and is able to play the guitar, piano and bass. Used to play in a band and even has his own YouTube channel.

Georgia Doherty, Recipe Development

Founder of The Hill Food Co and one of our all time favourite chefs. Georgia trained at Leith's School of Food and Wine and learnt floristry under the watchful eye of floral artist designer, Zita Elze. Her greatest inspiration is drawn from extensive experience as a private chef and her love of food derives from years of picking, digging and collecting home grown ingredients and turning them into lunch.

Ever the early bird, there’s nothing she loves more than baking bread before the sun comes up, picking flowers or wandering around the New Covent Garden Market for inspiration. On rare days off, she is happiest growing vegetables and edible flowers in her London garden.

Al, Web Developer 

When I met Al he had a full time job, was training for the London marathon and with a two month old son. I've never met someone so efficient and with so much energy. He's a magician when it comes to tech and has over 18 years software development experience in a variety of fields including Web, Mobile, Desktop and video delivery.

Victoria, Illustrator 

I met Georgia in 2012, just before I started a four year fine art degree at City and Guilds and in the holidays helped in the kitchen and at the Saturday market stall in Portobello. The Salmon, Edamame & Quinoa Salad is one of my favourite pots.
