I am a pastry chef. My passion is baking mouthwatering sweet treats and desserts.
Cooking & baking teaches you to be more aware of what you put into your body every day. By starting to cook regularly, you can become familiar with how some ingredients work or why one recipe fails. For example, making your own batter from scratch takes much longer than buying a pre-made powder mix. Be careful with the amount of butter added, the amount of kneading, and the temperature of all ingredients. When cooking at home, pay attention to the little things and think carefully about what you eat. Only the best quality food is good enough for you.

Baking in Ancient Times
As I love history myself. Here is a little background story about baking and how it started.
The first evidence of bread was found when people took the seeds of wild plants, soaked them in water and mixed everything together to make a soup. When this dough is cooked on a flat, hot stone, it becomes a bread-like substance. Then people cooked the dough over hot coals when they heated it. The oldest oven in the world was discovered in Croatia in 2014 and dates back to 6500 years. The ancient Egyptians used yeast to make bread. Baking in ancient Greece began around 600 BC. In 5600 BC the development of bread took place in the Roman Empire. From around 300 BC to the 5th to the 1st century BC, pastry became a Roman profession (pastilerium in Latin), and the Romans began to love parties and celebrations, which eventually became a respected profession. Desserts, for example, are often made for big parties, and any pastry chefs that can create a new kind of delicious dessert are welcome. In her first year in Rome there were over 300 chefs, and Kato wrote about how to prepare a variety of dishes and grow professionally and socially through her creativity. The Romans used fireplaces to bake bread in their ovens and mills to grind grain and flour.
