Hi, I’m Mimie (nickname given to me by my dad)! I am a French girl living in London and with Mimie’s Delicacies I want to share my love for baking, or more precisely my love for baking French Vegan Desserts! I wanted to create vegan recipes because I believe that if baking made me feel good inside it should also make me feel good on the outside, be better for my health, good for the environment and the animals too!
