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!
