About me – Marie-Claire Micuta
I am a passionate baker and have been baking since a very early age. I recently realised that owning my own cafe would be a perfect venture for me. However, a lack of available finance meant that this dream had to be put on hold. Not one to let this put me off I decided in 2010 to start home baking and getting some experience. So I got myself a part-time job at a cafe in Denby Dale serving coffee, ice creams and cakes as well as baking and selling my scones. I then saw other underground tea rooms popping up around the country and so thought why not in Huddersfield! And Cafe Nouveau at Home was born!
I have taken the Betty’s Cookery School Certificate Course – a ten day course which covers everything from nifty knife skills to perfecting pastry – with lots more in between including some of the recipes featured in my afternoon teas. I have the level 2 award in food safety and my kitchen has been assessed and approved by Kirklees Council Environmental Health team. I have also taken the basic and advanced barrista courses run by Cooper’s Coffee in Huddersfield.
