December 8 2018

My mum Maria is a professionally-trained pastry chef so in our childhood we were spoilt with amazing homemade cakes and pastries. I will always cherish fond memories of her cooling trays piled high with freshly baked mincemeat pies on Christmas Eve, ready to be packed in containers and enjoyed over the festive period.
