GINA TAN - ARTISAN HOME BAKER, RECIPE CREATOR
Baking with Gina was founded in 2016 by Gina Tan, a passionate Singapore home-based baker.
Hello, I'm Gina, a stay-home mother to 3 boys. Welcome to my page! Baking has always been a childhood dream, I picked up the skill as a hobby & gained knowledge through self-learning from online recipes, recipe books, and video tutorials. My kids are the ones that constantly inspire me with their cravings, which gave me the opportunity to explore different bakes, tastes, and techniques.
During my initial journey, I often love sharing my bakes with my family and close friends to garner valuable feedback. My family especially my kids are always my biggest fans! Their constant positive feedback & encouragement fuelled my confidence to vend my signature freshly handcrafted cookies, pineapple tarts, and chantilly cream cakes.
Shortly after, I began to discover the excitement of bread making using wild yeast as it's known to be healthier and nutritious. Hence, in 2019, I started cultivating my wild yeast using organic apples, water, flour and named it Annie. And I'm very thankful (until today), I'm blessed to met a few experienced home-bakers who are willing to share insightful information, tips & experience, my artisanal sourdough bread-making journey has thus evolved. With my knowledge and experience, I developed myriad fun and easy-to-use recipes and share them with the community.
My hubby, Ethan has been the most encouraging and spontaneous towards my passion. Eventually, he took the leap of faith and join hands with me to build this humble home-based business together in 2020. The story continues...
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
