Una Leonard’s Mullingar bakery, 2210 Patisserie, is famous far and wide, as much for its delicious cakes and treats as its infectious celebration of the sweet things in life.
But Una’s road to success was not a straightforward one. At the age of eighteen, just as she started her culinary arts degree, she fell into a deep depression and felt as though her life wasn’t worth living.
Then, taking time out to heal, she began baking at home. Creating cakes and treats for her family and friends, she was able to find glimpses of light in the darkness by mixing, folding and creating recipes.
In Sweet Therapy, her first book, with over 80 recipes for her now famous brownies, blondies, dotie bars, cookies and cake trays, along with gluten free treats and her mam’s family recipes, Una shares her story and the recipes that have turned her café into a destination and her online delivery business into the word-of-mouth success it has become. Sweet Therapy: The Joy of Baking is choc-full of delicious treats to make at home, a reminder of the good things in life, and a celebration of baking and how the mindful act of creating food for the people you love and for yourself can heal.
