20 years of baking from the heart

Already when I was little I loved the kitchen. When my mother was cooking, I would immediately stand by her side, watch and learn. Most of all I like to make sweets and cakes.

Food for me, it's love from the heart

I have been cooking for 43 years, since I was 16. I worked with my mother in the kitchen and learned from her. Even then my hobby was cooking, and I realized it was something I really like.
