Sharina Ali grew up in a household where all the ladies are great bakers and trained with a food R&D company in Spore. After coming back to JB she saw a niche market in real cakes using real ingredients which she favoured being a mother of 2 who wanted her kids to eat better quality baked goods free of artificial colourings, fondants and emulsifiers.
She is a regular at our green markets increasingly incorporating local ingredients into her bakes like tapai, cempedak, roselle flowers and many more. She recently opened Bakers Garden in Taman Eko Botani, IP. Her products will be available at the cafe at Edible Park on Saturdays, which will have a 'plant based' and 'farm to table' concept.
