The Crumpet story began in 2005 when Suzannah Longman and Rebecca Norris met in London, whilst both working on high profile TV shows in publicity and production. After moving to Los Angeles, and reminiscing over their love of hearty, authentic British food, they decided to bring a taste of British tradition state side. Scouring London antique markets on every trip back home, they have created a treasure trove of vintage crockery, platters and silverware, which together with their relaxed style, stunning flower arrangements and delicious seasonal treats, make every Crumpet event fresh and truly unique.
Suz trained at the prestigious London cookery school Leiths and went on to become Food Editor for the UK’s biggest selling women’s monthly magazine, Good Housekeeping. She is a food stylist, recipe writer and relishes creating new recipes with the cornucopia of fresh ingredients California has to offer.
Bex was a Director and Personal Publicist at one of London’s top PR agencies Public Eye and is currently an Event Planner in LA. Reveling in the planning process, she helps to create and develop each theme, adding thoughtful details throughout and bringing each client’s vision to life. After taking a course in floral design she creates all of the bespoke table top flowers for every Crumpet event.
Suz and Bex love nothing more than conjuring up a proper feast, bringing friends together and hosting occasions to remember. Welcome to our table.
