Below are some of my press and media features including magazines, Podcasts, News Clips and Interviews.
I had a BLAST with Jim on The Bloody Vegans Podcast!
Jim from The Bloody Vegan says: Danielle Maupertuis, is a Belgian Vegan Pastry Chef with a deep connection to chocolate.
Danielle has had an impressive career as an Executive Pastry Chef, having worked in renowned 5-star hotels both in the UK, such as Marriott and Red Carnation Luxury Hotels, and internationally in places like Greece and Lebanon. Notably, she was part of the team at the Beirut Marriott Hotel, which marked the first international 5-star hotel opening after the Lebanese civil war.
In the face of daily power cuts, she and her team even managed to prepare a wedding banquet illuminated solely by candlelight. Danielle’s culinary talent has been recognized on the international stage, as she has earned numerous gold and silver medals in various competitions.
One of her notable achievements includes winning accolades at the “Salon Culinaire de la Gastronomie au Liban,”. View the podcast here
BBC Radio Interview
My interview with BBC radio presenter Babs on BBC Three Counties was great fun too –
although we had radio silence while they were all enjoying my vegan cakes, including;
Bat on a decadent chocolate mousse
A black cat on a blood orange cream and pistachio sponge
And some of my homemade savouries.
