It all started when...
... I left university and decided I wanted to bake. A year of ogling the bread and pastry in Italy and France had taken it’s toll and I enrolled at Westminster Kingsway College on the Professional Pâtisserie Scholarship. I trained as an apprentice at the Lanesborough Hotel, and, after five years of working in busy London kitchens, I moved back to Suffolk, the county I grew up in, to start my own cake business.
Surrounded by some of the best produce in the UK, my passion for natural ingredients really began to take root. It was there I wrote my first book, Clean Cakes, which was published in February 2016, all about delicious baking with alternative, gluten and dairy-free ingredients.
I have since returned to London, teaching baking classes, making natural cakes and catering for special occasions. I am also writing my second book, Natural Baking, which focuses on using whole, nutritious ingredients, packed with flavour, to make delicious food to eat throughout the day.
