ABOUT LOUIE

One hell of a sweet hello! I am Louie, a 20 year old Belgian student with a serious passion for anything edible.

My story goes back to when I was a little kid. Astonished by my mother’s wonderfully prepared meals, I remember imitating her as a toddler in my play kitchen. Being the youngest of three kids, my granny used to spoil me with the sweetest pies & pastries that she bought at her favorite bakery. Whenever I think of the smell of those fresh rozijnenkoeken that she bought me, my heart instantly starts to melt. As I grew older, I started (binge)watching cooking series and reading tons of baking books. Exactly at that moment, I developed a big admiration for my holy trinity of food writers: Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver & Jeroen Meus. They inspired me (and probably millions of other people too) that you don’t need to be a chef to do your own thing in the kitchen, as long as you’re passionate about it. Hell yeah.

In 2011, I founded my first baking blog ‘Louie’s Sweet Kitchen’. Whereas it was initially meant as a personal database for saving my favorite recipes, I quickly realized how exciting it was to share my culinary adventures with other foodies. As practice makes perfect, I started writing my own recipes and changed the name of the blog into ‘Baked Louie’s’. In 2012, after a Tweet from flemish tv chef Wim Ballieu, I got the chance to write my first baking book. I was only 17 when ‘Baked Louie’s’ hit the shelves.

Turning almost 20, the time was right to start writing a second baking book: “Baked Louie’s Feest” (or “Baked Louie’s Feast” in English). It appeared in bookstores in March 2017.

Food photography is one of my biggest passions. Still learning, I’m constantly eager to create my own signature style & get your tastebuds working!
