I bake nutritious sweet and savoury treats, offering healthier alternatives to traditional favourites. I believe in eating nutritious and fresh food at all times and that this can have a significant impact on our wellbeing. My recipes cater for our different dietary preferences, so those looking for wheat free, dairy free, gluten free etc. will find something delicious without compromising their needs. My focus is on fresh, quality ingredients sourced locally whenever possible. All recipes are my own, developed over time through careful consideration of ingredients, flavour and texture.
I learned to bake from my grandmother and mother. For as long as I can remember, I would watch them in the kitchen – I was always the one “getting in their light”, trying to see how they mixed a batter or iced a cake. To supplement my home-grown knowledge, I took a course in patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu in London which, aside from showing me exactly just how much butter the French use in their pastries(!), taught me valuable techniques and gave me experience of a professional kitchen.
After becoming increasingly aware of what we’re all putting into our bodies, I’ve more recently set out to adapt the traditional recipes that I know and love…substituting butter and refined sugar and flour – amongst other things – with natural nutritious alternatives. I really believe that to eat better is to live better and although it’s fun to have an indulgent treat here and there, it’s not difficult to eat well without feeling that you’re missing out.
Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss an order… whether you’re looking for a celebration cake, canapes for an event, treats for a children’s party or something completely bespoke, we can work together to create the perfect cake or menu for your occasion.
