Rena Bakes

Rena Bakes is a collection of all my ideas and photographs based on my favourite things to cook and eat!  I am obsessed with food and I love to create new dishes.  From healthy family dishes, to weekend cheats and indulgent bakes, I love to make them all.

Being British born, with an Indian Gujarati background and now currently living in Dubai I have been exposed to a variety of influences and I have learnt a lot from it all…  Mainly that there are no wrongs and rights when it comes to food!  Food should be celebrated whether eating with family or friends and it’s even more satisfying when it’s home-made.  It really comes from the heart.

I grew up in England with my family who have always been passionate about food and are all great cooks!  Now my experiences in the Middle East have opened my eyes to new ideas and people which add inspiration to my everyday creations.  With my toddler son around I often use easy and simple recipes with real wholesome ingredients but I will always try to make time for those occasional treats which make life more fun!
