Hope people can feel the warmth of my cookies
Do you remember Eun-soo who wanted to become a patissier?
The sharp-eyed child is looks at the temperature of the oven and checks the timer. It's been three years since she’s been diagnosed with malignant lymphoma. Eun-soo had a hard time going back and forth between home and the hospital during her treatment, but she felt joy making bread and cookies and distributing them to people around her.
Even while tired due to chemotherapy, she wore her apron and got ready to bake bread once more.
My wish is to present the cookies I make to other people.
For Eun-soo who wanted to bake and give cookies to those she is grateful for, it was decided to gift an oven with a variety of functions. With a bright expression, she received the oven and started practicing.
"This is an oven just for you, Eun-soo!"
<Bread and cookies which Eun-soo made>
Eun-soo baked bread and cakes on days without chemotherapy. Passionate about her skills, she was proudly certified as a baker at the end of December 2020.
“I want to learn properly at a cooking class.”
Eun-soo contacted Make-A-Wish Korea, saying that she wanted to learn how to make cookies properly at a cooking studio in Itaewon. So at the end of January, Eun-soo participated in an one-day class as the youngest patissier at the studio.
“Does it come out in a different shape based on the angle of the piping bag?”
"What’s the taste difference between a sifted madeleine and a non-sifted madeleine?"
Eun-soo's questions continued throughout the baking class, which lasted about three hours from the early morning.
A proud smile spread on her face as a sweet smell filled the studio. She wants to set up a great cooking studio like this place in the future and teach people the joy of making cookies. It was a moment when Eun-soo's dream of becoming a great patissier came a step closer.
Pondering after the cooking class, Eun-soo said this:
Soon after the cooking class, Eun-soo’s house is filled with the scent of baking cookies. She carefully bakes cookies, checking the temperature and making sure they’re the proper shape.
"I've been seeing a lot of COVID-19 screening clinics nearby, and every time the medical staff there really are working hard. So I want to give the cookies I'm making as a gift to the clinic."
The 100 cookies Eun-soo prepared were wrapped beautifully with handwritten letters.
Theywere delivered to COVID-19 Screening Clinic at Seoul National University Hospital where Eun-soo is being treated. Eun-soo wishes that the cookies she gifted would give even a little bit of strength to others. ?
“What’s your dream now, Eun-soo?” “I want to be a patissier who enjoys their work.”
Eun-soo feels happiest when she bakes. She feels great that she can do what she loves and make others happy.
She not only loves the bread and cookies that she makes, but the process of baking. Please cheer on Eun-soo to become a wonderful patissier that spreads joy to people!
