Tasmanian Gingerbread’s unique and heavily guarded secret recipe was developed by Rosalind Davis over 25 years ago. Everywhere she traveled, from Agfest to the Deloraine Craft Fair, all her gingerbread men would run away with happy folks. As word spread, shops all over Tasmania began to seek Rosalind out and stock her delicious gingerbread products.

Circumstances changed, and as a result, Tasmanian Gingerbread disappeared from the market for 18 months. Retailers became desperate for this fine product.

The proprietor of Norman & Dann in Hobart’s Salamanca Place, introduced Rosalind and her special breed of men to Natasha, Tony and their two children, who promptly devoured generous samples and purchased the business in 2007 as they just could not get enough of the BEST gingerbread they’d EVER tasted – and their neighbours agreed!

With Natasha’s expertise in the baking industry spanning over 20 years, combined with Tony’s extensive creative design skills, not to mention the help our eager young product testers, we continue to develop and expand this “in demand” Tasmanian recipe without sacrificing any of it’s hand-made, home-baked qualities, while supporting local suppliers whenever possible.
Due to the growing popularity of Tasmanian Gingerbread, we rapidly out grew our home kitchen. In September 2009, Tasmanian Gingerbread opened a commercial kitchen and a small retail area – including cookie cutters and cake decorating equipment, at 12c Mertonvale Circuit, Kingston and we now employ permanent staff.

Whilst our location has changed, be assured our fantastic gingerbread will remain the same delicious handmade product!

In 2009, Tasmanian Gingerbread entered the Tasmanian Fine Food Awards, winning a GOLD MEDAL for our “chocolate hearts” and a silver for our tasty “chunky festive glace ginger and cherry biscuits”. To ensure all our products meet the highest quality standards expected by our valued customers, they are extensively lab tested by our resident animal, Stormy.
