Astrid Fields
My name is Astrid and I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town. I’ve always had an interest in food and loved baking from a young age. At university, I studied a degree in Food Science. After that, I worked at a flavour laboratory developing beverage formulations. Due to various reasons, I left the commercial food industry, but I missed the creative aspect of developing products. I started blogging about my baking adventures and the Sweet Rebellion was born. The Sweet Rebellion is all about indulgent and decadent treats. I believe that food made with love should be eaten without guilt!
