About Gourmet Baking

Hi! Welcome to Gourmet Baking site.

I'm Bertha, Indonesian-born Chinese living in the US since 2001. I started out here as a student, studying hard to graduate with Chemical Engineering degree and Safety Engineering minor from Texas. I found a great passion in baking and pastry when I was in college, approximately in 2006 and has been enjoying baking and creating a masterpiece that's not only pleasing to the eye but also to the taste ever since.

This blog started as dessert and cake only blog, but it now evolves into food as well, adapting to my changing lifestyle as a mom. I love creating and making something nice for other people, which hopefully will bring joy to them or at least a smile :). I experiment a lot with different ingredients and flavor combination to satisfy my taste, but hopefully with French twist, hoping that I would be able to create something different that everybody will enjoy.

Please drop me a few lines if you have any questions or justto say hi, and I would be more than happy to answer them. My hope is that this blog can be a little baking journal of mine and it can also be an inspiration as well as a blessing for other people :).
