About me

I have been cooking and baking since I was a little girl. Family life revolved around the kitchen and I have been interested in how my food was made ever since I can remember.

I grew up in the mid-seventies and eighties when Poland was still under the communist regime, so when it came to food shopping we were nowhere near as spoilt for choice as we are now. When food rationing was reintroduced in 1981, my parents had to be incredibly resourceful to find ingredients for a nutritious family meal. Only now do I fully appreciate how blessed I was to live my childhood oblivious to processed meals, fast food or sweets full of additives and preservatives.

I have my mum to thank for fostering my love of cooking and baking from a young age. Her patience and understanding of how important it was for me to be involved in something that I enjoyed so much are two of the most precious gifts she gave me.

Those gifts paid off years later when I moved to the UK and decided to give teaching baking a go. 22 years, one global pandemic and one home bake shop later I continue teaching in North West London and love every minute of it.

I am DBS-checked and have a Food Hygiene and Safety Level 2 certificate. I also completed First Aid course as well as Mental Health First Aid course and can provide public liability insurance certificate on request. My home bake shop has a five star food hygiene rating.
