I'm Megan. This humble blog of mine started as a fun little hobby while I was in university. I would sit in class, pretending to be typing notes on Suetonius' The Twelve Caesars or the socio-economic factors that led to the rise of Neo-Assyrian empire, when I was actually browsing food blogs and day dreaming about starting my own. Around that time, I also decided that university wasn't for me and I wanted to be a pastry chef. I started this blog to have some fun but also to convince my parents (and myself) that I was serious about baking, at least enough for them to put me into pastry school.
Over two years later, I've graduated pastry school at the top of my class, I work in a high-end patisserie, and my blog is a little more than a fun hobby. This is where I experiment with recipes and flavours, but also where I unwind and relax after a long week of work.
I try to use seasonal and local ingredients, cage-free organic eggs, and the best quality chocolate I can afford. You can't build a sturdy home if your materials are bad, after all.
The kitchen is my playground, where I have fun, and where I learn. It's where you should, too.
