I'm Sammy and I manage Cakey Love. I'm from Brazil and I've been living in England for about 12 years. I've been a teacher of English as a second language, a Portuguese interpreter and a chef.
My cooking adventures started in New York where I took a culinary course for a few months. After that, I knew I was hooked! I've learned how to cook whislt working at The Wig and Mitre in Lincolnshire and then, after moving to Bournemouth, at The Green House Hotel as a breakfast chef. I've learned so much there working alongside brilliant chefs. My latest job was as pastry chef at Lord Bute in Highcliffe which was an incredible experience and I would say all of my pastry skills were learnt from Jez, the head chef. However I needed a change and now I am now the proud owner of Cakey Love.
I'm super passionate about the ocean and I'm always looking for ways to be more eco friendly, like being involved with Win On Waste. This allows me to help out and gives me a focus on why being conscious about how we live is now an important part of everyday.
Lots of Cakey Love to you xx
