CIAO ! I AM VALENTINA 

I am from Rome, Italy.

I moved to London in 2008 and I had no idea what the future held!

After many years spent working in the hospitality industry, I felt it was time to feed

my passion for baking and start a traditional Italian dessert parlour. 

 

I launched Valentina's Recipes back in 2016 with one goal in mind:

bringing the Italian dessert tradition to the London area! 

After almost a year I realised that having and managing a business in London was not as easy

as I thought so I decided to press pause and give myself a bit of time to grow personally and professionally.

For the next 3 years,Valentina’s Recipes,was always in my mind…

When the pandemic struck in March 2020 my partner, Giuseppe, and I didn’t realise

how it was going to change our lives. We spent the first few months trying to manage all that free time

we never had before. We knew we wanted to take advantage of it as much as possible.

 

It was then that, we decided to re-launch Valentina’s Recipes as a “delivery only” business.

Surprisingly, we got very busy straight away and the customers' response was very positive!

As we were enjoying very bad news arrived….Like many other people in London

and in the world, Giuseppe lost his job and after a lot of consideration we decided that it was the moment to take on challenge and to dedicate ourselves completely to rebuilding Valentina’s Recipes,

but this time together.

 

And here we are!

We are the only online business in South West London baking fresh

choux pastry every day and delivering it straight to people's door!

 

The key to our choux pastry is simplicity:

high quality ingredients, old time recipes! I believe it's what people enjoy most!

I am very proud of it and I'd like to thank all the lovely customers who support our small business day by day!
