Teach as you bake.

I love teaching because I see the value of education for it enriches and empowers one.

That is one main reason why I chose to become a teacher in the first place.

Then I got interested in baking and realised that it isn’t as daunting as I thought it to be.

When friends told me that they dare not bake and wanted me to share with them, I couldn’t resist.

It’s always good to empower people, even in baking.

In Boston, I started giving one-on-one baking tutorial…

And macarons...

And then a pair…

And subsequently, a group.

So, I thought, “Maybe I can continue to teach baking to whoever wants to learn how to bake a certain item?”

It happened yesterday when i invited two ladies to bake Lemon Meringue Tartlets since they expressed much enthusiasm in my pictures (posted on FB).

I enjoyed myself tremendously. There is nothing like seeing a person become more confident in doing a certain task after showing her the ropes. Satisfaction to the maximum.

Perhaps, I can teach baking at my home… for a small fee?

Do you think this is feasible?

* By the way, I had a good photographer friend, Mabel, on that day who has an eye for details so Natasha could document her learning from the pictures captured.
Awesome.

  1. Just wanted to drop by and say I enjoyed myself tremendously during the session too! I started out with little confidence in wanting to bake tarts that I enjoy eating but at the end of the session, I felt so empowered with confidence that I am going to bake more tarts on my own! Thanks Lynn for inspiring me and helping me achieve my goal πŸ™‚
