Ah, food. Familiar, comforting, nourishing. My whole existence revolves around it. A permanent friend that follows you through life’s good and bad times. It evokes childhood memories and creates new ones everyday.
My names Hope and I love to bake. I’m a trained Pastry chef by day and a plant-based baker enthusiast by night. Most of my free time is spent in my small kitchen testing out delicious sweet treats free from animal products. Nothing pleases me more than making food for the ones I love; my friends, my family or even someone I just met. The extend my love through food.
I dream of the day I finally hold my first dinner party. (It is yet to happen due to cramped London living) I assure you it would consists of overflowing flutes of sparkling wine, stereophonics playing in the background, unpretentious humble food and laughter. Lots of laugher.
My plant-based diet is a very recent change for me, and a big one. I transitioned from being a dairy and meat enthusiast to a fully vegan diet overnight. Previously my blog was dedicated to butter laden dishes and all things cream! However, after exploring the many benefits of a plant-based diet, I’m hooked!
Whether you’re a vegan, someone simply looking for a different approach to ordinary baking or simply looking for a slightly healthier look on sweet treats; please accompany me on this plant-based journey of mine. Because everyone is welcome in this little space on the internet.
