Thought for today:

‘Cooking and baking is both physical and mental therapy.’

— Mary Berry

Such an apt quote from one of the doyens of British baking, and original Great British Bake Off judge.

For me, after a long day of working with people and their lives, there is nothing I like more than to bake or cook.

For me, it is mindful, present, and therapeutic.

I will always make a recipe as instructed the first time, just to see whether I get what is expected, or wanted.

Then I get to make notes and tweak it if necessary.

Or throw it away!

After an hour or two in the kitchen, my thoughts are centred on the present.

And I get to eat what I make!
