La Femme Nikketo – I started baking in my early teens after I had developed a severe nut allergy and learned baking out of necessity, since at that time nut-free options or bakeries didn’t exist. And so I always found myself having to adapt recipes to either remove or replace the nut ingredients. I would have to research what would be right, or if a particular product was safe-and then experiment in the recipe. Need can drive passion and it turned out that I loved to bake.

Fast forward to my adult life, married to a pescatarian for 20 years, mother of a teenage daughter who prefers chicken fingers to anything else. I always felt like I wasn’t running a restaurant when it came to family meals so resisted making ‘two dinners’ based on everyone’s dietary needs and tastes but still didn’t want to pull my hair out trying to please my hangry family come supper time. Thankfully our daughter likes fish!
