Incorporating experimental baking with the principles of maintaining good mental health.
Where does good mental health come into all this baking malarkey?
It comes into everything, doesn’t it?
My humble intention is to explore through the medium of the written (albeit blogged) word the potential benefits of slowing down and engaging in something absorbingly creative — such as baking. It’s my experience that it can genuinely distract a frantic mind from the disorienting thought cycles of anxiety and even depression.
Maison Hart is just me, in my kitchen in deepest Surrey, experimenting away to fill the faces of my family and friends and much to the bemusement of my enormous cat, Claude. In a way, it’s a shame that my live-in critic essentially wears a permanent look of utter disdain, but he’s also incredibly cuddly, which helps.
Bienvenue chez moi! Pull up an armchair, inhale deeply (I like to think I’m emanating a strong smell of vanilla at all times) & enjoy. You are most welcome.
