BEHIND THE SCENES
Manoela Rauen-Prestes, Ella, was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Ella lived as an expat in America, Italy and has been in the UK for a few years now. She has been a passionate baker and cook for her whole life, and as a good Brazilian, quite involved with fitness and health. She brought to the UK her fit, healthy treats.
"We have been doing healthier food substitutions and using healthy options in Brazil for decades... My mom used to put coconut water in my baby bottle to make sure we stayed hydrated at the beach, my grandma always had a sugar pot filled with organic stevia for tea, and my parents' garden has always had agave planted around (still does!). And I grew up in the 1980s, guys... It's a cultural thing: you go anywhere in Rio and there are light healthier treats available, so why not give Britain the same choice?".
Our UK bakery was born in the heart of the Costwolds. Our flavours are a mix of Cotswolds UK fresh ingredients, Italian hand making techniques, and Brazilian fit recipes. It's a small world, and we combined the best of what we know, hope you enjoy it!
