Hello and welcome to Baked Fig, I'm so happy you're here! I'm Lara - the author, recipe-developer, baker, and food-photographer at Baked Fig.
If you love Mediterranean and Asian inspired food, and a have a passion for all things baked (especially sweet things!), then this is the right place for you :). On Baked Fig you will find delicious and easy-to-follow everyday and holiday recipes for that the whole family can enjoy. Being Mediterranean married to an Asian, these 2 cuisines have become the epicentre of my everyday lunches and dinners.
My passion for baking has stemmed from a young age, where I would spend time attempting to bake (and sometimes making a mess!) in my mother's kitchen. Fast forward to 20 or so years and I'm finally in my own kitchen trying out new recipes during weekends and evenings. There is just something about baking that makes it stand above other cooking techniques. As I go along, I'm continuously learning new things and improve on old habits.
My aim is to create beautiful and delicious food and bakes using accessible ingredients which can be enjoyed by everyone at anytime!
I really hope that you enjoy your stay and that you will find some great recipes which you can make and enjoy! Please feel free to get in touch using this form.
Thanks for stopping by!
