About me

Monica cake board
I’m Monica Maya. I love baking and all food things. I started baking when I was 16 and throughout the years, and quite a few kitchen disasters, I have been experimenting in the kitchen and feeding friends and family.

Being Mediterranean, I love good locally-sourced ingredients, seasonal cooking and making up my own recipes. I try to incorporate these things in my baking and cooking.  I have lived in the UK for almost 10 years and have become obsessed with English baking classics. For me, there’s nothing like a slice of a fluffy and buttery Victoria sponge cake.I am an organic food lobbyist, a coffee addict and a chocolate geek. I am also a strong believer that food pleases bodies and souls, and brings families together and friends closer.

Happy baking!

    need to touch base with you on Spanish class, have reserved a place for your partner. have decided the practicals for everyone to do,. you can call me on mobile 07050176072, but I’m not good at answering it as i ban mobiles in the kitchen for staff, so I lead by example!” you can also try The Bistro 01380 720043 I am there both thur and fri pm, we get quite busy from 7,30 onwards.

    looking forward to meeting up with you both, we almost have a full class. I have brought back the whole dried peppers for making fresh paprika.
