Recipes are inspired by Mary Brown who was born on Christmas Eve in 1935 in Exmouth, England. Neighbors and friends would crowd around her kitchen table to have a taste of her wonderful baked goods. There was no better place to have tea and a cake than Mary’s kitchen. Her recipes have traveled across the Atlantic Ocean to be shared with La Jolla and the rest of the world.
