I’m Joeri Sterckx and I was born on the last car-free Sunday of 1973. And just like my parents had to be creative to get to the hospital, I now enjoy getting creative in the kitchen!

Cookies, or “gateaux” as we call them here at home, are one of our family traditions. Every celebratory occasion is a reason to have one… And every occasion deserves a celebration! That’s why I’m convinced I inherited my passion for desserts at an early stage.

My background is that I’m a preschool teacher, but I currently work as a pedagogical supervisor where I support teams in putting together powerful and meaningful teaching sessions.

The rest of my time is spent being a dad to Rune and Tejo, and having lots of fun and laughter.

I hope I inspire you with my bakes. To see more, please take a look at my Instagram account and digital photo album @joeristerckx

Have fun baking!
