What’s new at AGA Twyford

Boozy Bread and Butter Pudding

This is a recipe I wrote for Welsh Border Life, an Easter edition. Boozy Bread and Butter Pudding   This is a great recipe to serve up for a dinner party pud or leave out the brandy for the topping off of a family Sunday roast… that bit prior to the unheeded call for help with the washing up. The … Continue reading

Delicious Aga Yoghurt

Bacon and eggs are out for the summer at least and fresh, virtuous fruit and live yoghurt is in. I’m attempting to wean my 12YO off sugary breakfast cereals, scotch pancakes with syrup and toast lathered with jam for breakfast. This is no easy task as (apart from the sugary cereals) I am very partial to the aforementioned myself. My … Continue reading

Sue’s Banana, Date and Cashew Bars

May saw the opening of our new showroom, commonly known amongst the staff as the’ Betty Room’. It is in fact a cookware/homewares showroom/shop (I think I have all bases covered there!) My contribution to these open days and big events in the Twyford’s calendar is as always food. Generally loaded with calories and I like to think tasting delicious. … Continue reading

We are here! May has arrived… …and with it the realisation that our months of planning, shifting, pleading, (bribing builders with bacon sandwiches) sawing and banging will finally stop. The showroom is almost ready! We will soon be able to boast a Rayburn Heat Centre, with fully operational Rayburn in a beautiful kitchen setting so you can see and taste all … Continue reading

Mrs K.

MRS K. I went to visit a very lovely lady last week. She had turned up in our Leominster showroom having got a train from Builth Wells and then walked in the pouring rain from the train station here, to us. We made her two restorative cups of tea whilst she got her breath back. (Can I just point out … Continue reading


We have now become the AGA distributor for Herefordshire, parts of Worcestershire, Shropshire, Powys and Gloucestershire. We have all been learning about the new technology and how easy and sensible it all is, especially during the summer months, when you still need to cook, but no longer require your AGA to be on all day.  Basically, the new technology covers two … Continue reading

An AGA from South Africa

As well as supplying fully renovated AGA cookers, we also undertake renovations of customer’s existing AGA cookers. Below is the story of one of our more unusual renovations in which a 1940’s ‘Standard’ Solid Fuel AGA was shipped from Cape Town, South Africa to our factory in Herefordshire. The cooker was to be fully renovated to include re-enamelling in Claret … Continue reading

Rise Above…

It’s been a little quiet in the showroom of late. The phones have been going but not many brave souls are making the journey to Leominster to come and see our cookers in their Cast Iron flesh. We are pre occupied about the weather. And rightly so as it’s affecting a good many of us. We are bombarded with images … Continue reading
