I was born in Cardiff in 1960. I moved to the US in 1980. My ties to Wales have always continued to be very strong and every year I travel home to Llantwit Major. With the passing of both my parents and the pandemic, everything has changed. I can’t wait for 2021 so I can return again.
After working in the US for many, many years, I worked for a tech start up in Boston, MA. When my mum passed away in June of 2013, it was around the time I was laid off. I found myself craving the taste of Welsh Cakes and began griddling them every morning for my sons, Miles and Noah. Then I began griddling them for neighbors and friends. As requests grew, I realized I had found my calling. In the fall of 2013, I made it official, opening Copper Kettle Bakery and I never looked back. http://www.CopperKettleBakery.com
I continue to promote Wales as much as possible and can’t wait to return home one day. Hiraeth
