Welcome

Hi, I’m Helena!

Welcome to my blog. I’m a linguist with a passion for baking and wine.

I have always enjoyed baking. Since getting married and moving to Wales, I have found myself baking more and more. If there is one thing I bake more than anything else, it is welsh cakes. They are delicious and so easy to make! I also have an interest in wine, and before the pandemic struck, I was studying the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and was writing about my wine travels.

Since lockdown was introduced in March, I have increasingly turned to baking as a way to relax. Over the last few months I have baked all sorts of things from banana bread to chocolate cheesecake. I find baking to be therapeutic, as I love being creative, doing things that require attention to detail, and I have also discovered that I really enjoy documenting and taking pictures of the baking process. Check out my blog to read about some of my baking adventures!
