I am Ancy George (Anzz), a never intended to be food blogger and baker all the way from Kochi, Kerala. I am mother to two adorable kids, the tornadoes in my life.
Starting an online blog was one of the most unexpected things that I have done in my life. For a person who never entered the kitchen till after marriage, making a cup of tea was a huge thing. Forget the fish curry that we Keralites are famous for, I would rather order out..! Things went for a turn after I had my daughter Irene, all of 12 now, followed by my son Ryan, now 10.
They had their demands, their likes and dislikes. One does fish, the other hates it. One prefers chicken, the other wants shell fish. Not to mention the hubby with his own set of demands.!! It came to a point where we had most proteins on our dinner table. And slowly cooking took its own place in my life. It was no more “have to cook”, now it was “want to cook”. Over the trials, successes and failures of the many years, ANZZCAFE was born.
I have made a lot of friends in the blogging world. And my absence on this page the last two odd years did not go unnoticed by my readers and friends alike. Well, I had never given up on the site. The last three years came with a lot of changes. We moved from Bahrain to Cochin. I put my roots back in firmly here, got kids in school. The hubby came down , heading a company here. And I started baking professionally.
Yes, I spent a good 10 months heading a private bakery, designing cakes, learning new techniques and discovering new horizons. For a person who had never seen fondant, this was a huge step. Self learning all the way. As of last October, my dream of a small bakehouse came true in A LA CAKES. A small and elegant cakehouse, we do customised cakes for all occasions. And this is what keeps me occupied now. Its been a long and wondrous journey..!! Right from our humble beginning to our little stint into professional cake baking now.
Now that you guys know what I have been upto, here is welcoming you back to this space. Back to my weekly posts, new recipes and baking tutorials. I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I enjoyed making and posting about them.. Have a great stay..!! thank for sticking around, for you queries and posts enquiring about me, pushing me to get back to blogging. Please do leave your comments as that would help me improve in my efforts. Also please do excuse the beginners photography skills here. That is still rocket science for me.
Hope you enjoy your visit. And eat well..!!
