The roots of Sherry’s creativity can be traced to her rich heritage – a first generation British born of Jamaican and Kenyan parents. This unique combination of cultures enabled Sherry to continually embrace new ideas and to “think outside of the box”.
The chronicle began in the late 70’s. Where her mother empowered her with recipes and techniques secretly passed throughout the family for the last 3 generations.
Unfortunately, her adolescent years resulted in waned interest, which was recently revived during the attendance of her late grandmother’s funeral in Jamaica.
Unknown to Sherry, her grandparents was one of Birmingham’s (UK) bespoke West Indian bakers from the 70’s until the 90’s.
Consequently, Sherry honed her skills and her ongoing creativity simply causing patrons to unanimously respond “jena se qua”.
Sherry’s achievement has resulted in various accolades including but not limited to being crowned “Britain’s Best Baker 2010”. This national competition was judged by Master Pâtissier Eric Lanlard of “Glamour Puds” Channel 4 (twice winner of the prestigious Continental Pâtissier of the Year at the British Baking Awards) and Guardian Food Blogger Oliver Thring.
The judges tasted each cake – deliberating on taste, texture and appearance.
