When she discovered that it was a gluten and dairy intolerance that were making her life a misery, Boo decided to find a way to cut out the bad stuff without sacrificing those sweet treats she had enjoyed since she was a child.
Adapting those classic recipes for her own dietary needs, she found a way to indulge in delicious cakes, bakes and buns, all made from organic, locally sourced ingredients rather than chemical substitutes.
A fashion designer by trade, Boo's cakes were such a hit with friends and family that she started selling them on her market stall, and before she knew it, a bakery was born. Combining her eye for vintage detail with her fond memories of her Granny's afternoon teas, Boo collected up her chintzy teapots, cups, saucers and doilies to create a hidden gem of a tea shop in the heart of North London.
Boo's first cookery book, Bake-a-Boo includes 80 of the tea shop's most popular bakes, including her scrumptious High Tea menu, and many of the delicious gluten and dairy-free scones, cupcakes, cakes and tray bakes she serves at the shop and as part of the special themed parties she is famous for.
Whether it's a baby's first birthday or a hen do with a twist, let Bake-a-Boo show you how to whip up the perfect spread for any occasion.
