REGINA SCHENKELBERG is a trained CONFECTIONER and a brilliant host, 20 years Exp in food Industries.

Regina Susann Schenkelberg grew up in her father's bakery in Germany 49 years ago.

Since her early age she spent time in the bakery room to help her father preparing food for the shop to sell.

She went on to become a trained pastry cook and her cake, painstakingly prepared and nicely decorated, was very much in demand in this little town situated on the foot of the Erzgebirge.

The business developed and further branches opened in and around Chemnitz, the former East of Germany.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall she moved to Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, a wonderful charming place with a historical old town (Ahrweiler) near Bonn. Later when one year she was voted carnival queen she met the man who became her husband, a business graduate from Rhineland Palatinate. Together they set up a real estate business, her husband in the role of Sales Executive.

"Cooking comes so natural to me. I've been around kitchens my whole life."
