When you think of food, what springs to mind? Is it just fodder that you eat to live? An overindulgence that you live to eat? Or maybe it marks certain moods and moments in your life – from home comforts and girlfriend brunches to fancy first-dates or your favourite birthday (cake).
The fact is, food plays such a massive part in our lives and wellness – something Benjamina Ebuehi discovered when she followed her passion for cooking, after appearing on the Great British Bake Off in 2016. Today she continues to champion the simple pleasures that baking can bring in her cookbooks The New Way To Cake: Simple Recipes with Exceptional Flavor (2019) and A Good Day to Bake: Simple Baking Recipes for Every Mood (2022). On episode 4, host Matilda and Benji explore food and baking, as well as the cook and author’s own personal journey with food, fitness and wellness.
