In January 2006 I embarked on a new venture. It was time to follow my passion after a previous career in analytical chemistry, I swapped a Bunsen burner and beakers for a rolling pin and beaters! Within two years I had qualified with:
- London City & Guilds Certificate and Diploma in Food Preparation and Cooking (Culinary Arts) – 2006
- Best Overall Student Award – 2006
- London City and Guilds certificate in Patisserie – 2007
I then worked in a variety of cafés, restaurants, bakeries and catering kitchens, both as a chef and pastry chef, making everything from Danish pastries to cocktail food. Experience in scientific research, an understanding of chemistry, a passion for cooking (baking in particular) and recipe development led me to start up my own business in 2012. For the next five years, my business “Creative Cooking” produced a range of French patisserie, specialising in the popular artisan macarons.
Making Healthy Eating Exciting
In early 2017 I began to make “seed only” crackers when I couldn’t find any on the market that were low in carbs, high in protein and actually tasted good. These crispy Superseed Crackers are a totally unique addition to the market. Containing no flours or fillers, they are gently baked in small batches until crispy. Containing only organic seeds, nuts, herbs, olive oil and seasoning, they are super healthy and taste amazing! They are a tasty way to get nutrition on the go or as an exciting addition to a platter.
From my kitchen to you!
