In her classes, Anneka specialises in teaching not only the 'how' but also the 'why' of baking, giving home cooks the know-how, understanding and skill to bake with confidence and success every time.

Anneka is passionate about bringing real baking into Australian homes and inspiring home cooks with deliciously simple recipes that are relevant to their lives. She believes that baking is something to be valued and, most importantly, shared. Her ultimate goal is to connect home cooks with the magic of baking and, through this, the people they love.
"Baking can enrich people's lives on so many levels and connect them with the people they love. It warms the heart and feeds the soul. Baking is love made edible."
