Kate lives in Merseyside and works as a Health and Safety Inspector. When she’s not making Liverpool a safer place, you will find her indulging in her many hobbies: blacksmithing and furniture restoration as well as yoga and outdoor pursuits. History fan Kate also utilises old-fashioned techniques for baking, such as using smoked flour for sour dough bread, and recreating recipes such as a Dockers Wedding Cake. Kate is predominately self-taught, and started to bake about two years ago when she started growing her own vegetables, and became more interested where food came from using local produce.
