Welcome to Clootie McToot HQ
My name is Michelle Maddox, although my children call me ‘The Clootie Dumpling Queen’. I live in a small village based on the Perthshire/Fife border on the beautiful banks of the River Tay. Our village has quite a history and used to be the southern Pictish capital of Scotland in medieval times.
I have four beautiful children and originally one of our son’s was desperate to have a stall at his Christmas school fete . I agreed and decided to make Traditional Clootie dumplings just like my Grandma used to make following our families recipe that has been passed down the generations. The aroma of sugar and spice and the laughter from my children brought back many fond memories of my own childhood. We sold out that day! That was the start of my new venture!
I founded Clootie McToot Dumplings in April 2017. From there I have gone on to win a number of awards, opened our Clootie dumpling shop, pop up café and viewing production kitchens. I enjoy developing new Clootie Dumpling flavours and passing on my knowledge to my growing customer base during my live workshops and demonstrations, as well as getting out and about to our annual festivals and events.
The best bit of my life is that I wake up every day doing something that I love with my family.
Thank you for helping make our dreams come true ❤
