Behind the Wellington Bakehouse

Hello gorgeous people! My name is Kearin and I love to make, eat and share all the things. I’m obsessed with bread and jam. I love to experiment with flavours and forms to make delicious things that are a little unexpected.

I truly believe that everyone can make wonderful food for themselves and loved ones. It is my mission in life to help people discover the simple joy and pride of creating real things with their hands and sharing them with others. And to learn as much about food as I can along the way.

I studied and worked in Finance for more than 10 years before making a leap of faith to try and build a life doing things that bring me joy and satisfaction everyday. I live with depression and anxiety which can make a wholesale life-change challenging. I think it’s important to share my personal journey to raise awareness and acceptance of mental health issues.

I have lived in Wellington, the gorgeous capital city of New Zealand for nearly 15 years and can’t imagine living anywhere else. It’s a beautiful, welcoming place filled with delicious things and amazing people.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet – I hope you find a little joy and inspiration here.
