When I first met Leah, the baker behind Norah’s Brownies I was immediately struck by her incredible energy, infectious laugh and effervescent enthusiasm for pretty much everything. Then I saw her brownies. Just the most beautiful, colourful little creations, and delicious too! So, when she called me to photograph her at home. I jumped at the chance.
With a background in fashion, and a career in catering, Leah has thrown all her talents, plus her heart, soul and energy into her new venture – making Norah’s Brownies as delicious and as beautiful as possible. She’s the driving force behind the business, designing her own website and new packaging too. These luxury, gourmet brownies are free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. She was busy decorating a batch when I arrived one sunny afternoon in late August. The large open plan kitchen in her Hackney home where she lives with husband Tommy, is a perfect space where she can work, bake and watch her two little girls playing in the garden.
