Welcome to The Food Exchange!
The Food Exchange is a monthly project between Lucy from http://www.lucyabakes.com and myself.
Lucy and I met through our blogs and it was quite funny when we realised that we not only share our love for baking, but also both live abroad: Whilst Lucy is English and moved to Germany in 2014, I am German and moved to England the same year.
Lucy and I got along well immediately and developed the idea of the Food Exchange. Since then every month we send each other a typical English/German recipe that matches a certain topic.
Thanks to Lucy I have discovered many new delicious and typical English recipe that I never came across before. The Food Exchange gives me new ideas and it is so much fun to bake things I normally wouldn’t have baked.
Below you can see a list of what we have already made. By clicking the links you will be sent to the relevant post, if you click on a German bake you will be sent over to Lucy’s amazing blog.
We hope you enjoy reading about our project! If you have any themes or bakes you would like to see us make, message either of us through our blogs!
