Would you like to learn about me?
Hello and welcome! My name is Irina, I am the mother of two wonderful sons, the wife of a loving husband and a full-time working professional.
I have been baking since I was 11 years old when I was collecting recipes from my mom’s old magazines and baking early in the morning on weekends. Sometimes, when my baking was not turning out the way I wanted, I threw it away and started all over. I was persistent…
Over the years, my baking skills have improved and the hobby of my childhood has become a passion and an essential part of my life. There is a nice quote: “Do more of what makes you happy,” and baking really does the job for me.
All my passion is about pastries, especially the French ones. Over time, I have discovered that I have become a “Michalakmaniaque” and mostly follow the RECIPES of the French chef CHRISTOPHE MISHALAK, a pastry World Champion, although I admire other world-renowned pastry masters whose recipes sparkle my blog as well.
I speak English, French and Russian. I also studied Portuguese for eight months in the past. Moreover, I worked in a company with Italian speaking colleagues for three years, and I now understand spoken Italian at some point. That is why you will find numerous recipes translated from those languages.
That is a bit about me. And what is about you? Do you like to bake? Let us together start the journey through the delicious world of pastries and discover new tastes and flavours.
Thank you for visiting!
