the marshmallowist story
The Marshmallowist was the first producer of gourmet marshmallows in the UK. Using premium ingredients - only whole fresh fruits, organic herbs & spices and boutique alcohol - The Marshmallowist combine classic confectionery with unexpected flavours. Like Passionfruit & Ginger or the new Spiced Tomato & Vodka.
Having trained as a chocolatier in Paris but starting her business on a Portobello Road Market stall, Oonagh Simms creates Marshmallows with a French soufflé-like texture and a signature London edge. With a flair for the adventurous and a taste for success Oonagh now sells her marshmallows to some of Europe’s fanciest stores. You know the ones- Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols- to name just a few.
The Marshsmallowist’s bold design and unique luxury packaging has received worldwide acclaim featuring in Vogue, Wallpaper Magazine and The Times. Oonagh’s first recipe book ‘The Marshmallowist’ was published by Penguin Random House in July 2016. You can pick up your own signed copy here.
The Marshmallowist has an exciting year ahead, with some exciting new stockists (shh, they’re a secret) the launch of new flavours and the expansion of the Toasting Marshmallowist Experience across Europe.
