Olivia Wollenberg, is the brilliant lady behind Livia’s Kitchen. After she was unfortunately diagnosed with many food intolerances going back to 2014, Olivia had to drastically change what she ate. So she devised and found gorgeous delicious desserts that did not include wheat, dairy, refined sugar and various preservatives. Along with her amazing blog, she has devised many homemade crumbles and is planning going to launch her ‘slab bites’.
Livia’s Kitchen states it is very important to know what a product is made with, rather than what things it is free from. So, enjoy fabulous sweet recipes, such as cranberry and honey flapjacks, super gingerbread balls and healthy blueberry porridge squares.
Jo is from Boston and moved to London in 2011. After 8 years treading the financial market, Jo decided to pursue a career as a freelance photographer 3 years after moving to the UK. This grew into launching “Candids”, an enjoyable lifestyle blog. One which focuses on good London restaurants, far-away destinations and all things food-related.
