And welcome to my blog. I’m Lore Triest and I started this blog in the summer of 2015 to share my passion with the world. I would define myself as a baking enthusiast, and this blog is for people who share that same interest with me. 

For as long as I can remember, I have always liked to eat sweets or make them myself. Something about a delicious homemade pastry brings a smile to my face. And let’s be honest, there is nothing greater than seeing the joy on someone’s face after you gave them something yummy that you baked yourself.

Perhaps, I should also tell you a little bit more about myself. Currently, I’m 21 years old and I’m a college student. I study international business management at the Artevelde university college and twice a week, I follow evening classes to try and become a certified pastry chef and chocolatier. For now, baking is more of a hobby rather than something that I want to pursue professionally although I might in the future.

Since the summer of 2016, I am officially a certified chocolatier and I am on my way to become a certified pastry chef. However, I am currently studying abroad for one year in the US and I decided to put those evening classes on hold for a while.  Right now, I am a student at the Fort Hays State university in Kansas and next semester I will do my internship in Wafels&Dinges in NYC. I am really excited about combining my studies with my passion for baking during my internship and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me. 

In the long run, I hope to get to know some people through this blog who also have a passion for baking with whom I can trade recipes and maybe even create some new ones. Moreover, if you have some suggestions for recipes that I can or should add to this blog, feel free to contact me.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I love creating it. 

Kind regards,

Disclaimer: All the recipes and pictures that are posted on this blog are mine, unless stated otherwise. Feel free to share them, but I’d appreciate it if you acknowledge my blog as the original source. Another thing that I would like to point out is that I’m not a professional pastry chef (yet), but a girl with a passion for baking. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
