Our Story

This story officially began in September 16, 2014, but let’s rewind a tad bit (literally, a tad bit) we met on August 27, 2014 at a mutual friend’s birthday celebration just on the outskirts of Wales (where our mutual friend lived at the time) and close to where James’s family home is.

Obviously, we made an impression on each other, or else we wouldn't be here right now, but at the time, could you already spot the red flag in the situation? Did I also mention that he was heading to university in Sheffield a few weeks later too? Yeah, I know.

Well, that did not stop James from planning his surprise visit to London, just three weeks after meeting each other (which is when we became official) I know what you’re thinking, but sometimes, you just know.

The name Food and Baker originated from Jessica’s personal Instagram bio, as she already developed her love for food, she would always comment that ‘food always comes first’ and so it does (in the sense of it being Food & Baker, not Baker & Food and in general life - plus, it doesn't have the same ring to it, right?)

It goes without saying that Jessica shared her love for food to James (as he was a little inexperienced) and that is how the blog, Food & Baker formed, it started as a visual diary by Jessica and has now become what it I today, with the help of James.

We are just a couple who enjoy the little things, from going out to eat, to taking adventures. All our aim is to share it will you all, to hopefully inspire and show you that anything is possible.

We are Jessica Bautista and James Baker, JBfor short ;)
(spot the reference to our name in his surname; we’ll get to that in a bit)

Here's a very brief background story as individuals:
Jessica is 23 years old, works full time as an administration/warehouse assistant, who also helps organise an annual beauty pageant, along side her own events business.
James is 21 years old, part time working student, who is now on his placement year in London, as part of his Business and Marketing course.

We are practically opposite at everything but found our common ground for the love of food!
