Grokker’s Expert Ella Caulier left the rat race behind, to fulfill her dreams and venture off into the world of cooking and baking. After studying at Leiths Cookery school in London, Ella took inspiration from her childhood and she set about recreating the dishes and recipes that brought her such joy, remembering in particular those wondrous summers spent with her Belgian grandparents where she would feast on fine pastries and sweets. She now runs the company Ella Eats, a catering firm that is gaining popularity within corporate and private dining.
