Meet Your Instructor
Olga Ursu

My name is Olga Ursu and everyone knows me for my piles of honey sheets and the sheer volume of medovik I make. In the 3 years since I embraced this craft, I have baked thousands of honey sheets.

I started my business specifically out of a passion for medovik and it is because of this dessert that I have become so appreciated. In fact, it's also at the top of my customers' favourites list, because I managed to adapt the classic recipe, keeping the good homemade taste, the taste of childhood. English, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Italians, Spaniards, Arabs and other nationalities who have tasted this cake have been surprised by the texture and taste. Operating in England, the spectrum of customers is wide, but the medovik remains the favourite of many.

I am also a mum of two boys, so I sweeten and delight many people with the desserts I make. My business is based on making simple but dedicated cakes - something you will learn in my classes.
