Meet Natasha Bassett: The Cookie Baker Behind Australia's Favorite Treat Turned Cookie
Cookies have always been a beloved treat worldwide, and in the heart of Hollywood, one baker is taking them to the next level. Natasha Bassett, known not only for her acting prowess but also for her extraordinary baking skills, is set to dazzle cookie lovers at all three BakeCamp LA events this October. In this blog post, we'll dive into Natasha's cookie journey, her signature creation, the unforgettable memories she's made while sharing her scrumptious treats, and her passion for supporting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.
From the Silver Screen to the Cookie Sheet: Natasha Bassett is no stranger to the limelight. With a successful acting career, she has graced the screens in numerous films and television series. Yet, what sets Natasha apart is her love for baking, especially her fondness for transforming iconic treats into delectable cookies.
One of Natasha's most famous creations is the "Seven Minutes in Heaven" cookie, inspired by Australia's favorite treat. During her time working on the movie "Elvis," Natasha would treat her fellow cast members to these irresistible delights. It was none other than the legendary Tom Hanks who dubbed them "Seven Minutes in Heaven." These cookies are not only a testament to Natasha's talent in the kitchen but also a testament to her ability to bring joy to those around her.
The Golden and Crunchy Wonder: Natasha's favorite type of cookie is the kind that tantalizes the taste buds with a perfect balance of textures and flavors. Her ideal cookie is golden and crunchy on the outside, but it's what's on the inside that truly makes it special. The miraculous sweet goo that oozes from the center is what elevates her cookies to a heavenly status.
For Natasha, this perfect combination of textures and flavors is not just a culinary choice; it's a philosophy. It represents the beautiful balance that can be found in life, where the outer toughness and challenges are met with inner sweetness and resilience.
Cherished Memories: Sharing Sweet Moments: While Natasha's cookies are unforgettable in their own right, it's the memories she's created by sharing them that hold a special place in her heart. Her fondest cookie memory is centered around the joy of giving and the camaraderie it fosters.
On movie sets and at events like BakeCamp LA, Natasha has had the privilege of sharing her hot, freshly baked cookies with her cast members, fellow actors, and baking enthusiasts. These moments of connection and blissful indulgence are what truly make her cookies magical. It's the smiles they bring, the stories they create, and the bonds they strengthen that inspire Natasha to keep baking her heart out.
A Heart for Giving: Supporting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary: In addition to her passion for baking and acting, Natasha Bassett is also dedicated to making the world a better place for our furry friends. One of her favorite charities is Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, an organization that works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate animals in need. (We love them too!)
Natasha's love for animals and her commitment to their well-being align perfectly with the ethos of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. She believes that just as cookies have the power to bring joy to people's lives, so too can acts of kindness and support for those in need, whether they have two legs or four.
