Hello. Welcome to my brand new blog! This page is a chance to go ‘behind the scenes’ in my kitchen, a place to discover new ideas and inspiration, and hopefully get to know me and Milk Street Kitchen a little better!

So, I thought I’d use this first post to say hello and tell you a little about me….

My name is Ellie and I live and work in the lovely little town of Haslemere, which is nestled in the countryside on the border of Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire.

My husband and I have a gorgeous little girl who has just turned one – still a bit young to be my assistant!

I grew up by the sea and my favourite place to relax and blow away the cobwebs is on West Wittering beach in sunny West Sussex.

I am an enthusiastic newcomer to gardening and hoping to get my own little edible flower garden up and growing this summer, so I have a ready supply of prettiness to top my cakes.

I used to live in Austria. Oh my the cakes! From baked cheesecakes to the traditional chocolate Sacher Torte – I was in cake heaven. And the mountains weren’t bad either!

One of my favourite parts of my job is meeting engaged couples at venues, events and for tastings. It’s such a happy time in people’s lives and a real pleasure to play a little part in that when I have the opportunity to design and bake their wedding cake.

If you’re currently looking for sweet inspiration for your wedding day or special occasion I’d love to hear from you and meet in person! Feel free to drop me a line anytime at ellie@milkstreetkitchen.co.uk to say hello.
