About us

My name is Esther Bickerton.  I work from home in my thatched cottage in the lovely village of Horseheath, just outside Cambridge.

I’ve been making traditional scotch eggs for friends and family for years and then started experimenting with different flavours and ingredients.  A friend suggested they were so good I could sell them and so I decided to try it out and see what happened.

I took samples round our local shops and food outlets and the response was fantastic – and so The Kitsch Hen was born.  I now supply butchers chains, local cafes and bakeries, pubs and restaurants around Cambridge and Haverhill.


I have a passion for cooking and creating food for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re a vegan, a vegetarian or a meat-eater.  I specialise in making different varieties of scotch eggs but I also make quiches, and sausage rolls cooked to order.

All my products are homemade and freshly prepared.  I use local free range eggs, and local produce so the environmental impact of our food miles is as low as possible.

Please see below my list of stockists.  Private orders are always welcome.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
