I’m Hannah and food makes me happy. My favourite way to spend the day is in the kitchen baking. I grew up with a father who loved to cook anything and everything, and a mother who made and decorated amazing cakes and gingerbread houses so my interest in baking was encouraged from an early age.
I was given free run of the kitchen to make what I liked… so of course everything was dyed bright colours, filled with marshmallows and covered in sprinkles and glitter…I like to think that my baking style has gotten a little more sophisticated since then…
I also have a very arty family, so have always been creative and loved crafts, I did an HND in jewellery and silversmithing and now make the odd piece of jewellery, random crafty bits and pieces and revamp old items of furniture.
I live in Birmingham, UK with my husband Damian and our Jack Russell Terrier Ringo. When I’m not cooking or crafting you can find me out walking with Ringo, rock climbing, reading, drinking vast quantities of tea and fantasising about what to make next…
I started Domestic Gothess in 2015 as a way to document my baking and cooking creations and after a lot of hard work I am now fortunate enough to call it my full-time job.
I have been vegetarian my whole life and have recently moved over to a predominantly vegan diet, therefore most of the earlier recipes you will find on this site are vegetarian and all newer recipes are vegan. All vegan recipes are clearly labelled as such.
All of my recipes are well tested to ensure that they work and I never sacrifice on taste to make something vegan – all of my vegan recipes are as good as the original versions.
