This is me, Betty. I bake, eat, photograph, write, and repeat. I am a baker, recipe creator, and blogger living in Vancouver, BC. 

The Obsession

My passion for baking started with the quest for the perfect sponge cake recipe when I was about 12 years old. I was curious about how eggs and sugar could whipped up to be so fluffy. Eventually my curiosity grew into an obsession.

I started taking baking courses in my spare time so I can learn more about this craft. Later I went to art school to study graphic design, where I designed and wrote a cookbook for a project. I created this food blog, Yummy Workshop as a continuation of this project.

It is the perfect platform to express my art and baking. I realized that I actually enjoy doing this a great deal.  Though I like designing, my desired to bake called me. So I began to look for baking jobs. It was one of the best choices I’ve made but one of the most challenging ones. I applied for a baker at a start-up French bakery but I didn’t have pastry nor culinary training. I was lucky to have the opportunity to start an internship there, and becoming a full-time pastry cook until now. The bakery was so kind to offer me a scholarship to attend pastry courses in Paris – it is possibly one of the best experiences I’ve had to date.

The Bake Experiment 

My kitchen is like a baking lab, where I carry out all sorts of weird or random baking experiments. Of course they don’t always turn out well, but it’s so rewarding when things turn out unexpectedly delicious. It would be a dream to test baking all day, everyday, only to make the most delicious and beautiful pastries.

Connect?

Food connects us in many ways that are most inspiring to me. Making connections with others through food is one of life’s pleasures. I can always talk with people about food, regardless of that person’s other interests. So let us connect!
