He came up with the idea when he saw gingerbread men in London and thought he could do better.

Now widely known as ‘Sam the gingerbread man’ he gives speeches to inspire other young people to start their own business.

As an established part of the Sussex produce scene, Sam decided to branch out and meet up with fellow producers and discover some of the amazing recipes through the medium of a vlog.

We will be featuring the vlog, giving our readers chance to meet the people behind some familiar local brands, as well as watching some amazing food being prepared.
