Una Leonard is living her dream!

She’s a baker with her own shop and cookbook, but it’s not something she could have imagined just a handful of years ago.

In 2015, while still in eating disorder recovery, Una took a notion to open up her first bakery, 2210 Patisserie with a “f*** it attitude, because I was like, what is the worst that can happen?”, she tells VIP Magazine.

Now in 2022, she has her own published cookbook. But did she think this was possible?

“I used to always say, I’ll have a cookbook before I’m 30 – but I was joking! But then in the run-up to Christmas 2021, right in the middle of COVID, while busy packing up postal orders for delivery, we heard on the radio about the upcoming Geminids meteor shower,” she tells us.

“There and then everybody in the kitchen made a wish and I wished for a cookbook by the age of 30! Three days later I opened an email from the publishing director at Hachette Books Ireland!”

Talk about magic!
