Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I’m Bek, a food-obsessed baker and home cook, pasta and red wine addict, and cookbook hoarder from Newcastle, Australia.
While I was studying to be a Speech Pathologist (and then a grad dip in writing and literature), I discovered cooking and fell in love with baking and all things floury; in exam periods I could be found in the kitchen at midnight, covered in flour, baking a cake or a tray of brownies instead of studying. Procrastibaking was (and is) my jam.
I started The Floured Kitchen to share my recipes, whether they be original, adapted or found from my mountains of cookbooks. Here you will find plant-based recipes made with seasonal produce and more often than not a whole lot of flour. I can think of nothing more homey and perfect than the smell of yeasty cinnamon roll dough rising in a bowl on the counter, a fruit pie sizzling as it’s pulled from the oven, a slow afternoon spent baking a pan of olive-oily rosemary focaccia to be eaten alongside a hearty dinner.
Also pasta. Pasta is my one true love. I wish I were Italian, but I’m not. So I make pasta and pretend.
My Mostly Plant-Based Diet
I’m not fully plant-based now, though I was for 5 years. I eat some seafood (mainly mussels and oysters), though plants are 95% of my diet. The recipes I share will always be free of animal products.
I hope you love the recipes that come out of my floured kitchen. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email, I do my best to answer all questions and would love to hear from you!

LOVE your blog! I am so making these porto-burgers with cheese! Not sure why you deep-fried them, which is way unhealthier than eating meat. Just wondering…thanks for cool recipes! God Bless!
Thank you Stu! Hope you love the burgers if you make them! I’m sure baking them with a little olive oil / coconut oil at about 220 celsius / 430 fahrenheit should get them pretty crispy if you’d rather not fry. Deep frying is definitely not healthy, I 100% agree. I personally don’t mind having fried things as an occasional treat, as I avoid meat for ethical reasons rather than health reasons. It’s definitely not something I eat often though. Thank you for the comment! 🙂
