    On Saturday - I attended the most wonderful raw dessert making class @madeinhackney hosted by the talented and super cool @cerikitchen. This is just a sneak peek of some of the delicious treats we made. Dehydrated oranges dipped in handmade raw chocolate, raw after eights and those cutesie little shells. This is just tipping the iceberg with what else we learnt and made in class.

    I've been to three masterclasses at Made In Hackney and loved them all. It's a brilliant way to spend an afternoon. You learn lots of new skills, eat great food, meet new people - and you're giving back to a great cause. What could be better?
